Verified Patient Reviews
Great place, staff and amazing doctor.
Dr. Rettig and everyone at MedStar were professional and attentive. Doctors offices can often feel like a grind of in and out, but this one is not that. I appreciated the thoughtful and thorough initial conversation regarding my neck/arm/nerve/pain issues. Highly recommend!
I injured my knee severely to the point where I can't walk. Rushed to see Dr. Rettig at Medstar thinking she and Medstar provide the ultimate care. She came into the room, evaluated my knee and said is take aleeve and she left. I wad dumbfounded, I could not walk and was in excruciating pain.. she showed the least concern possible. Her smirk and smile are completely fake. Avoid at all costs if you want to get a reliable and serious doctor who actually cares.
Dr. Rettig was very helpful in evaluating me and answering any questions I had. Whenever something didn't make sense or she could tell I was confused she explained everything in very simple terms to make sure I knew what was going on. Looking forward to working with her in the future!
Dr. Rettig was very friendly and thorough. I could tell that she actually cared about me getting better. I wouldn't hesitate to refer any of my friends and family to see her.
I had an excellent experience in the office. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. Every technician and assistant who worked with me was clear and kind. Dr. Rettig listened well and described my physical and x-ray results very clearly, answering all my questions and demonstrating what I would need to do to treat my pain. Overall, the experience was quick and painless, and I now feel much better about healing my foot effectively!
Dr. Rettig was amazing! The office is run incredibly efficiently--I had the nurse take my vitals, a consult with a sports therapist, an X-ray, and then a very thorough visit from Dr. Rettig (who had reviewed my X-ray results), all in under 45 minutes. I didn't feel rushed at all with Dr. Rettig--she really took the time to understand what was going on and then to explain physically what had happened and what the next steps should be. She was so fantastic, I really wish she could be my primary care doctor so that I could see her all the time.
I was incredibly pleased with my experience at Dr. Rettig's office. The entire staff was both friendly and helpful. During my appointment itself, I felt like I was in good hands and truly listened to as a patient. I would highly, highly, recommend.
Dr. Rettig was absolutely amazing. I was blown away by her. She is extremely professional and very knowledgeable. I will definitely visit her again if I have any other injuries or nagging pain. I would highly recommend her to others.
Although my issue ended up being minor I highly recommend her! Great bedside manner, she was thorough, nice offices, and not much wait.
The office staff were extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Rettig was extremely helpful in helping me figure out the source of my pain. She was through and offered helpful next steps. I would highly recommend.
I've been avoiding go to see a doctor about my knee injury for almost 3 months now. I'm glad I went. The Dr. and her support staff were knowledgeable, gentle, realistic, and understanding. Very professional, great bedside manner, and armed with productive suggestions and an action plan. The offices were very clean and the wait time was incredibly short. I am overall very pleased!
It took a long time to be seen despite a relatively empty office. But Dr. Rettig was great when i did see her. Prescribed physical therapy for my knee issues, but may have to follow up for more treatment.
The service was very professional. I really felt like they were concerned about my health.
The physician and support staff were very kind, understanding, and professional. I was pleasantly surprised by this Medstar facility. Highly recommended.
All of the staff was really great - quick, relaxed, caring. Very respectful too during x-rays!
Always receive excellent quality of care.
I was in and out in 15 minutes - super quick and easy process, especially with the option to fill in your medical forms ahead of time via Zocdoc. Great experience with the app, and great experience at the doctor's office! Highly recommend!
Excellent bedside manner. Patiently listened the my concerns and provided diagnosis with detailed instructions.
Good person. Good sense of humor. Very professional. Nice staff.
Dr. Rettig listened well and offered helpful, specific advice. I did not feel rushed through. Highly positive experience.
Great - very thorough examination and communicates so effectively. Extremely satisfied with the care received and the training student also who assisted!
Dr Rettig was great. I was seen right away and I found it really convenient that they had Xrays on site. Dr. Rettig was clear in her treatment plan and was quickly able to diagnosis my problem and offer solutions. Dr. Rettig was very kind and knowledgeable. Would see again should my issue persist or a new related issue pop up.
Totally awesome Doctor! I would accept no less than the highest levels of quality care and she delivers! Highly recommend!
Absolutely amazing experience and this comes from someone who hates doctor offices
Courteous, thorough, and competent--overall very happy with my visit.
So friendly and great at putting patients at ease. Everything was explained in great detail and not rushed through. Highly recommend this doctor.
Super smart and wonderful doctor, didn't over prescribe treatment plan for badly sprained ankle. Would recommend her to anyone!
After arriving early at the Lafayette location, I needed to wait an additional 30 minutes to see the doctor. I thought the staff working at the clinic could have been more professional. At one point, a staff member walked into the waiting room and yelled loudly to get everyone's attention (even though the room wasn't overly crowded) that one of their doctors was late from surgery and the patients waiting would need to "chill out for a while" if they wanted to stay and see that doctor. After making the announcement, I overheard one of the front desk personnel say, "there's only one patient waiting to see that doctor." Eventually, I got to see Dr. Rettig who was very professional and did an okay job. Within 10 minutes she diagnosed my problem, told me about the medicine she'd prescribe and then left to go write the prescriptions, but she never returned to the room. She did not stick around to discuss treatment, follow-up appointments, etc. She said she'd write a prescription for physical therapy, but I still haven't received that. As soon I got back to work, called the doctor's office to follow-up on my questions. I left a voicemail after being placed on-hold for an hour. It's been two days and I'm still in a lot of pain and have not heard back from Dr. Rettig, because she's working at a different location the rest of the week.
Excellent practice and patient experience
Probably the best hospital visit I've ever had. Granted...I'm 31 and haven't seen a doctor since I needed a physical for high school sports (only twice thereafter); they saw me almost immediately as I filled out my forms online thru ZocDoc. This visit made me think twice about MedStar and their business operations. I'll definitely be going back.
My appointment went very well. The front staff was courteous and Dr. Retting was very warm and knowledgeable. I went there for knee pain and I was happy to learn that she's not one who rushes into X-rays and surgery but instead believes in the healing power of your own body.. Hopefully rehab will be all it takes. If not, I will take the next step per her advice.
Very nice facility. Great, friendly staff. I like that they had everything in-house (x-ray, MRI). Dr Rettig was very friendly and she did a thorough examination. I was pleased with my diagnosis.She didn't want to send me for additional tests, which is great. I highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Rettig was excellent! She was very thorough in her examination of my foot injury. She provided answers to all my questions and concerns and gave me great advice on how to treat my injury. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Rettig for any of your sports medicine needs.
Though I appreciated Dr. Rettig, the nursing staff was cold and unfriendly
Dr. Rettig and the MedStar facility both get 5 stars for me. No long wait, friendly staff, nice facility, and best of all Dr. Rettig took her time to explain everything and answer all my questions. If only all doctors appointments were this easy.
Dr. Retting was great. She answered all my questions and gave me a proper treatment plan and next steps.
Clean offices and bathroom. Greeted warmly by everyone - front desk, tech, assistant and the doctor! I was very impressed and relaxed.
Excellent experience with Dr. Rettig. The facility appeared a little chaotic upon first impression, but I was checked in and talking to Dr. Rettig in under 30 minutes. Very helpful with explaining my condition and giving advice to avoid future injury.
Best Dr. visit in years... The entire staff was personable, professional, and knew exactly what they were doing... I hope that I don't have to return but only because I want to be injury free... If another injury pops up, I won't hesitate to return to this office... thanks.
Anne was great. Easy to talk to and explained what was going on in a way I understood. Would recommend to anyone.
This was one of the most thorough doctor's visits I have experienced. She and the entire team were wonderful. Highly recommend!
professional, concise, personable would not hesitate to schedule follow ups
I had waited all too long before seeing a physician about my long experience with hip pain, and that foolishness appears yet worse in retrospect because Dr. Rettig's diagnosis and recommendations were splendidly swift, thorough, and cordial.
I chose Dr. Rettig because of her great reviews, and I was not disappointed. The several other staff members I saw were also extremely polite, friendly, and competent.
The dr. Was very friendly and did not waist time. The only big problem was finding a parking space.
Super-attentive, efficient, wasn't rushed, laid out her diagnosis clearly. Wish all doctors were like this.
Excellent visit. The staff all obviously love their jobs. Diagnosis was fast and we came up with a treatment plan that works with my needs and my desire to keep running.
It was my first time with a specialist. Very comfortable and helped me each step of the way. Great people, conversations and service.
Dr. Rettig was very thorough, knowledgeable and had great bedside manner, even tolerating my stupid questions :) Highly recommend for orthopedic issues.
Anne was approachable, informative and professional. The office was nice, I was seen within 15min and I left with a thorough understanding of my ailment. All of my expectations were met. I will continue to use Anne Rettig, MD as a doctor after this visit.
The doctor and her team were extremely friendly and professional. I felt like I was taken care of, from the workers' compensation paperwork to choosing the right knee brace, all my questions were answered. The office is clean and modern. I wish I could come here for all my medical needs!
She was great - the office was in an urgent care which I didn't expect. I brought my young daughter and they suggested we wear face masks due to the flu which was less than ideal!
Dr. Rettig was very caring and understanding of my health concerns and issues.
Dr. Rettig was very thorough and explained to me everything that I needed to treat my knee issue. She gave me a very inclusive treatment plan and steps to take in order for me to get better.
My appointment was good. Doc Anne paid attention in all my needs and addressed them.
Dr. Rettig is very professional. She listens to your issues but also keeps in mind your lifestyle and goals when helping put together a plan for recovery.
Dr. Rettig is great and the new Medstar facility is beautiful
Dr. Rettig is very attentive and understands the importance of my sports injuries and getting me back up and running as quickly as possible.
She is wonderful, Warm and very knowledgeable!
Easy to talk to and very friendly. Explains the issue/prognosis well and answers any questions thoroughly. Office is in an easy location to get to and find. Clean, modern, and comfortable.
Dr Rettig is my go to doctor for running-related injuries. She clearly explains what the problem is and discusses with the patient the treatment plan. She is very knowledgeable and patient. I highly recommend her.
Professional, thorough and kind. I'd recommend.
Got in early and was done quickly. Dr. Rettig focused on my issue and explained what was going on and the plan to recover in a very simple manner
Everyone at Medstar was wonderful and helpful to me! I was greeted with multiple smiles and each person from the front desk, to the nurse, to the provider was eager to make my visit pleasant. Check in was simple and since I was early to my appointment I was seen immediately. The practice has an X-ray machine on site as well which was extremely convenient for getting a diagnosis quickly. I hope I never need to come back with another injury but if I do need help again, I will come back here!
Dr. Rettig was fantastic! She was thorough, easy to talk to, and gave clear instructions on what to do next - will definitely go back to her in the future!
Overall great- am glad I came here!
Nice, new facilities and generally very good interactions with staff from front desk to Dr. Rettig. Even the security guard was extremely pleasant and helpful. My only qualm was the long wait time. I was seen 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time despite pre filling the forms and arriving early.
She was nice, fast, and helpful while I was with her. But she referred me out for an MRI, and was impossible to reach after I had the test results. I'm seeing another doctor to have it read and continue with my treatment.
Dr. Rettig was great. She was knowledgeable and happy to help. Unfortunately the techs taking vital signs were terrible. They tried to just speed through the process and did not seem to care about me or the vitals readings, and just looked annoyed/frustrated throughout. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Rettig, but don't go here for anything where the readings of your vitals actually impact your treatment/could be connected to your issue.
Very thorough, thoughtful and helpful. All of the great things commented about here are very accurate. I'm thrilled with the care and professionalism of Dr. Rettig and her office.
Dr. Rettig was great, gave me a thorough checkup and recommendations on my issue, and my overall experience was as good as could be hoped for. Just one note, they do not take accept your forms from Zocdoc, I had to refill forms once I arrived. The front office said they had spoken with Zocdoc about removing this functionality for them, but that they hadn't yet done so.
Dr. Rettig is the best!
I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Rettig! I woke up with severe knee pain from a previously torn meniscus. Dr. Rettig was able to see me right away. She examined me, took the time to listen to and address all my questions/concerns, told me my options, and gave me a good plan of action going forward. She was also able to treat my pain right away, which I greatly appreciated since I could barely walk. Her bedside manner (which is incredibly important to me) was wonderful. She's so nice and courteous. I felt totally comfortable and at ease with her. Would highly recommend!!
If only ever Dr. and doctor's office were as good. I cannot praise highly enough Dr. Rettig's great bedside manner, as she allowed me to discuss all my symptoms, was responsive, and not once left me thinking I would be leaving without everything addressed. I am fortunate to have found a doctor that listens, cares, communicates, and instills confidence through her competence.
Came in about a lower abdominal pain. Dr. Rettig took her time listened to everything i had to say and was very helpful. I would strongly recommend her
Dr. Rettig is great. She is thorough and very respectful of your time and issues.
Dr. Rettig was great. She was very attentive and did a thorough physical.

She was very pedants
Dr Rettig was excellent and clearly explained the issue I was having as well what to do in order to recovery. Highly recommended!
She is very thorough and takes the time to listen to your concerns. Highly recommended for any runners out there!
Great, explained things very clearly. Was very nice and I could definitely tell she really cared. Would definitely recommend!
Fantastic, caring and highly professional physician - would highly recommend!
Dr. Rettig was very quick, pleasant, and knowledgeable. She explained everything very clearly and I appreciated her attentiveness. I definitely recommend her.
I visited Cr. Rettig for leg pain from running, which I thought was a fracture. She is a wonderful doctor and was very nice and attentive and asked all the right questions. I really appreciated the time she took to answer all my questions and make sure I left feeling confident in my diagnosis and next steps.
Fast and helpful. I appreciated that she was familiar with an athlete's routine and was specific with her recommendations.
I experienced Dr Rettig to be very kind, compassionate and thorough. She has a very calming demeanor. She was punctual and did not act rushed during our time together. She asked a lot of questions to get a clear picture of what was going on and she was patient and very focused when listening to my responses. She made sure I had everything needed to keep me comfortable and start the healing process while waiting for upcoming MRI results and our follow-up appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Anne Rettig!
great! Very efficient!
Long wait, took a little over an hour to see Dr. Rettig. She was a fantastic doctor so the wait was worth it.
Dr. Rettig is an excellent professional. She is very pleasant and friendly and explains the situation in great details and also in a simple to understand language.
She was on-time and very friendly. As a former runner herself, Dr. Rettig was one of the few doctors I've been to who understand my injuries and was able to proscribe a regime that worked for me (most say "stop running"). I would highly recommend her.
I booked my appointment online and did not sync up with the office's calendar. However, Dr. Rettig's stayed late to accommodate me. I highly recommend Dr. Rettig.
She was great. She was calm, opened to questions, and I thought she was very good at diagnosing me.
