Verified Patient Reviews
He is a very good professional, he knows what he is doing.
Very very long wait time, but staff was friendly and doctor was knowledgeable and helpful.
Doctor Rance truly cares for his patients and will do as necessary to treat you. I have a very rare condition that was discovered by Doctor Rance over 28 years ago. I drive over four hours every month to follow up with Doctor Rance. I have faith in him and the doctors he refers me to for other conditions.
I do not understand how this office has such high reviews. While Dr. Rance is very personable, his office is a mess. I have been there multiple times for appointments and I have never waited less than an hour after my scheduled time to be seen. His office staff leaves for lunch half an hour early and returns half an hour late. If you value your time at all, do not make an appointment at this office.
I got there 10 minutes early. They did not acknowledge my presence until 15 minutes later. When they returned my documents, I asked how much longer it would be. I was told that the wait would be 35-45 more minutes. At that point, I told them that I would not be waiting.
The office is very nice and clean. Unfortunately, the wait time was forever. This was du to unforeseen circumstances though because the doctor was called away to the hospital for an emergency. The staff was awesome and the doctor was terrific. Will be going back every time I have any issues.
Very professional and easy going.
Great, friendly doctor! The only issue with the visit was the long wait time.
Doctor Rance is incompetent. He and I discussed what the likely problem was, and he said that he was ordering a specific test, which we discussed. When the imaging place finally fit me in, Rance had ordered two other tests, neither of which we had discussed, rather than the one that he promised. The test that Rance promised would have ruled out the worst possibilities. So now I'm left not knowing what is wrong (the tests he ordered showed nothing), and worried about what could be. Fired. He is fired.
He is a very knowledgeable doctor. I felt a little rushed and it seems that they overbook patience for the same time. They don't go by appointment time, instead they call your name by the time you arrived and sign in.
They have moved offices, but ZocDoc did not have the correct address.
Great bedside manner and seems very concerned with your health.
Dr. Rance is very honest and gets straight to the point. Overall, my visit with him was great!
Great doctor. Very helpful and friendly.
I've had many doctors dismiss me or order invasive/expensive tests that yielded no benefit to me. Dr. Rance was knowledgeable, listened to what I had to say and was conscious of the potential insurance charges with unnecessary testing. I don't mind waiting for proper treatment.
The most thorough doctor ever.
Best physician ever. He spends the time he needs with you, rather than watching the clock. He listens. He is honest, thoughtful and direct. I'm so glad I found him.
I waited about 1-2 hours after my appt to see the doctor and finally when he came in he was very professional however, I felt very rushed.. I had stomach pains and needed to get an endoscopy. I wasn't able to get it as I have not met my insurance deductible. I haven't seen Dr. Rance since
The doctor is straight forward and is great but he will make you wait. My wait time today was more than two hours, I do not live close to his office so because I had to wait for so long, it took me close to three hours to get home so basically for a 10 minutes of actually talking to him, it took me total of 5 hours, and that is without adding my drive to the place.
The staff was very friendly and took me back right away to take my vitals. However, I waited in the exam room for an hour and 30 minutes before I was able to see Dr. Rance. However, I found out that he got held up at the hospital, otherwise, I think I would have been seen much sooner. I am overall satisfied with my visit. On another note: one room where my weight/height and basic information was taken was very cluttered. It looked like they were using that room for storage as well as blood work. It could be cleaned up a bit.
I am really really happy to have found Dr. Rance's office. It has been awhile, but I have finally found a doctor's office that has a friendly, attentive and professional staff and a 5 star physician! He listened to my concerns, gave me detailed options and I feel fully satisfied with the overall outcome of my appointment. And after 5 specialists later I can finally say that I can trust a doctor with my precious health! So I give Dr. Rance and his staff 5 stars!
Dr Rance has been treating me for over twenty years. He diagnosed and successfully treats my illness when others gave up. Dr Rance truly cares for his patients. I have numerous other ailments of which Dr Rance is also very knowledgeable. I feel I am blessed to be treated by this remarkable man.
He is a great doctor and soo nice person
A 1h40m wait is unacceptable.
very smart, right fixe, no long time waiting in his office, he know what he do. thanks
Doctor was very knowledgable.
He is a good, he knows everything about everything. If you don't understand something he will stay as long as you need until you understand it and there are not a lot of Doctors out there that will do that with there patients. It is usually hi and bye. I am very thankful to have met him. I know he will take very good care of me. He is what a good Dr. is suppose to be. !!!!! He has true compassion for his patients and that is what it takes to be a Dr. in this day and age. Without that how are you going to be able to care for the wounded and the afflicted....
Was very informative, and had great Recommendations!
He is truly a down-to-earth caring individual.
I adore him
I was not comfortable with him. His office was a mess. I ended up not scheduling the colonoscopy with him and went elsewhere.
Great doctor..easy to communicate with
