Dr. Re is very intelligent and explains why everything is wrong/the way it is. He answered all of my questions, was very personable. I would just say it felt a bit rushed once he actually came into the room. I didn't mind because I had to make it to work that day.

Very efficient and friendly office. After answering diagnostic questions, I received an Xray, and then the doctor was able to very quickly diagnose my problem and proscribe a solution. I enjoyed my visit and am hopeful I will make a swift recovery.

Waited 40 minutes at reception and another 25 in the patient room. Dr. Re seemed in a rush to get through our appointment and did not ask if I had any questions regarding my follow up.

Literally the best experience I've had from start to finish at a medical appointment of any kind. Really at any appointment of any kind. I told them they were role-modeling for other offices. It so simple but so well executed. Ali and Dr. Re were amazing, answering all my questions, explaining everything to me in a way I could understand but with regard as if I were a colleague - and the best part, Dr Re kept saying surgery is the last resort, and emphasized that. For not one second did I feel rushed. And I never had to wait, appointment on time, getting xrays, ultrasounds, the results...everything was immediate. The tightest run ship around. I can only speak for Ali and Dr Re but I can't think of a single thing I would improve. Super impressed. I'd send my parents to see Dr Re - can't think of higher praise than that.

Dr. Re was very informative, and explained everything to me so that I could understand it. He will be performing my surgery on July 11th. I knew I needed it. He explained exactly what he was going to do, why I was having all the pain and what I could expect after the surgery. I am very happy with him so far.

The general impression that I got was that he's too busy to give his patients any genuine attention. He didn't really take time to listen to me. Every time I tried to ask a question, he interrupted me without answering the question. I thought maybe I should wait until the end of the visit to ask my questions so I tried a 4th time to ask questions at the end and got interrupted again but this time the interruption was paired with him walking out of the room and telling me to check out. He didn't want to know what my goal was and I have no reason to believe that he has my best interest at heart. I will be going elsewhere and will not be returning to this office.
