We got off a bit on a wrong footing, partly due to some information given us at a previous appointment, which raised my hopes, which were dashed in the first sentence by Dr. Rinn. That is certainly not her fault, but it set a bit of a wrong tone, when we questioned her at length. That said, Dr. Rinn explained in detail what her recommendations and course of action will be and gave us reading material to back it up. I came away feeling fairly well informed and through additional research was convinced that her recommendations are certainly well founded.

The doctor is nice, but the wait time was ridiculous! And since I was told the doctor was going to need "extra time" with me I expected more than five minutes of her time.

Dr. Rinn is an exceptional caring and knowledgable physician with attention to all patient needs [...] than many of my current physicians - some of whom don't listen and don't act as if they could care less about me and more about the statistics.

when Dr Rinn is in the room with me I feel like I am her only patient for the day. She is that focused on each of us in her care. She goes far beyond cancer to check into the other facets of my wellness, leaving no questions unanswered or doubts remaining. How is it possible to look forward to a doctor visit for cancer!? Dr Rinn is the answer

Dr. Rinn is the most amazing, kind and tentative position I have ever received treatment from she takes her time and answers all of my questions even in the face of all my fears about cancer. She is compassionate and loving and way more than you would typically expect from a physician. I see a lot of physicians in the Swedish system and I have to say that Dr. Rinn is one of the most amazing physicians in your whole medical system. You should be very proud of her and you should recognize her for all that she accomplishes with her patients, not just medically but emotionally too. [...]

I have recommended Dr Rinn to every local woman I know who is dealing with breast cancer. She is awesome. I emailed her through MyChart that I had miraculously become pregnant, and she and RN Betsy have contacted me a few times between then and this last appointment to check on my and see how I was doing pregnancy-wise and just celebrate the news with me. I truly feel that she cares about me as a person, not just as a patient.

Dr. Rinn is the quintessential oncologist with whom I feel extremely comfortable discussing all of my health issues, not just those dealing with cancer.

I absolutely adore Dr. Rinn and have trusted her with my life! She has cared for me since my initial cancer diagnosis 5 years ago and makes recommendations for my continuing care based on our discussions and my progress. Kristine always has time for me and makes me feel like my needs are her number one concern when we are together. I look forward to my visits with her because she communicates so well.

Kristine Rinn is outstanding. She was my oncologist for breast cancer and has followed me for over ten years regularly. She has caught an important medical problem that noone else did. She is so deeply caring and has so much expertise and experience. I am profoundly grateful she is my doctor--she is a specialist but has a wide range of knowledge.
