This Dr. is top-notch...very knowledgable about Lyme's Disease. In Texas his knowledge of Lymes is a rarity. He took ample time to ask in depth questions about my condition and was able to address all my concerns in a very clear manner

While the wait was extremely long, the staff apologized and even warned us in advance that due to the nature of the practice, long wait times might be expected. The RN was very thorough and made sure and that all bases were covered. Dr. Rensimer took his time with me and listened to my concerns. So far, I will continue seeing Dr. Rensimer.

The doctor was great. The staff however are disorganized. I waited for over an hour before i was taken to the back. At that point i waited another half an hour before the doctor came in. The pharmacy was unable to fill one because the prescription was not specific enough. The doctors office ignored the call from the pharmacy. I then made 16 phone calls that were ignored and finally was able to get through to a nurse who called the Pharmacy "idiots". They only care about scheduling as many people as possible. The doctor was great but expect to be treated like cattle from the staff.

He is without a doubt one of the most intelligent doctors I have ever met. I will continue to set appointments with him, as he tells it like it is. He gives you information about your illness. He knows more than any other doctor I have ever seen.

He was running behind from being called into the ICU for an emergency visit but once I saw him, he was very attentive and thorough. He had a wonderful bedside manner and discussed all my options so I walked out feeling well educated.

Very pleasant and down to earth. He shoots straight from the hip and I could tell I wasn't just another appointment on his list. He took the time to talk to me and explain things I otherwise may not have even thought of. A consummate professional.

I felt the treatment was poor, because I was referred to another doctor when I still had a condition that needed to be followed by an infectious disease doctor. Basically, I was "fired."

He listens, shows concern, explains things and takes his time with the patient. Realistic, very professional and knowledgeable. After having seen 6 doctors with my issue, it was the first time I actually felt being taken seriously.
