The woman at the front desk could have taken a few classes in professionalism. She was SO rude, multiple times. Once I was called back, everyone was fabulous. The LVN and the MD were great and redeemed the nasty attitude of the front desk.

Excellent Staff. Busy Monday but Dr. worked me into his already busy scheduled day. I had been sick Easter weekend and needed to see a physician on Monday. Dr Renismer has treated me on two different occations and I consider himone of the most thorough and knowledgable physicians. He has a prodigious working knowledge in medical fields, not only his own specialty, and his diagnosing skills are at the top of the field. I have been an RN since 1973 and have interacted with lots of physicians that do not have his skills and expertise.
