I am an RN [...] and have personally recommended Dr Rinn to several other RNs here dealing with breast cancer (or with family members with cancer). All are very happy with Dr Rinn's care. 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.

Dr. Rinn is the best provider I have ever had. She takes very good care of her patients. She is compassionate and is always present during a visit. I work with oncologists who don't have the great interpersonal skills and it makes an enormous difference in the ability to deal with treatment and recovery.
