Dr. Rinn is exceptional, and makes every patient feel as though she is the only one, I have never felt rushed through an appointment. I especially appreciate that she asks me what I think, and how I am dealing with this recurrence of [...], and now heart issues, apparently caused by earlier [...].

My dissatisfaction starts with getting the follow-up appointment [...]. After appt. was set up, [...] calls me the day before to say newbies gave me appt. meant for current patients. We reset - day of appt. I was instructed to go to do blood test before seeing Dr. Rinn. AT the lab, they said I had no appt. and no order for blood. When I went to Dr. Rinn's, a nurse told me my appt. was not for another hour which was wrong. I was upset. Then was told Dr. Rinn will see me in 15 mins. I took 2 doctors business cards ready to change. [...] Dr. Rinn is good but makes you wait long time an hour or more. Feels like no regard for patient's time.

Dr Rinn actually came in BEFORE the clinic was open back at my first appointment [...] just so she could squeeze me in when I requested her as a provider. Above and beyond. I could not imagine getting better, more personalized care. I know I am cared about as a patient and as a person.
