After several weeks of testing and consulting at MAYO CLINIC at Rochester, Mn., result was a Liver Transplant. All said and done my assigned Doctor told me that it was Dr Rippentrops cancer discovery that saved my life.

Guy doesn't care about his patients at all and is a horrible doctor! Only cares about money and not the care of his patients, do not go to this guy!

Review for Dr. Dempewolf

I did not have the best experience. There was a major discrepancy regarding specific test results. The results were inaccurate. I was not believed at all. This happened a while ago but I cannot and will not be comfortable with a provider who doesn’t listen to her patients.

Jul 24 2020

Review for Dr. Meeker

J K became my ob after having a miscarriage. I had 2 kids after that and would trust him every time I have a need in his field. He knows what he is doing. It is sad he left cedar rapids. If I had any serious problems I would probably take a drive to make me feel 100% confident to get his opinion.

I would highly recommend Dr. Mathew for pain management. He is the most attentive and knowledgeable doctors I have seen.

Jul 07 2020

Review for Dr. Mathew

Perfectly wonderful. Talked to me in non-medical terms and was very genuine. He truly cares for his patients and I thank him for taking care of my dad as his health declines.

Tina Lillie Jul 06 2020

Review for Dr. Louvar

Thorough exam but no feedback at all. Just wanted to pass me off to another office with no explanation. Feels like being scammed. Imagine paying a mechanic $600 only to be told to go somewhere else and no reason why. I feel robbed.

Review for Dr. Rexroth

Definitely no empathy. Interrupts when you are explaining. Provided no diagnostic after a rushed basic exam despite my GP’s recommendation of an EMG. Does not seem to communicate well, just wants to rush through appointments.

Dr Renz was absolutely amazing to us. My husband had to have two surgeries in ten days and I could not have felt more comfortable with my hubby in his care. He is not only an amazing surgeon he is such a genuine caring person. Took time to talk to us and check on us. We appreciate everything.

Jeff and Darci Mar 06 2020

Review for Dr. Renz

He was rude, short with me and acted as if he didn't have time for the appointment with him. I don't care who thinks he is a good doctor, his bedside manner is extremely unprofessional.

Dr. Dvorak literally saved my mom's toe when she was having wound problems for over a year, which other doctors couldn't get under control. He is very knowledgeable and personable and the best podiatrist in the area in my opinion. He was a blessing.

T.D. Tesar Jan 14 2020

Review for Dr. Dvorak

Best doctor I ever had. Very Knowledgeable. Has answers and reasons for the answers for any question you might ask. Very efficient, but always shows interest in the patient, and willing to spend as much time as necessary for you to understand your ailment and the proposed solution.

Dr. Peter Ahn, MD was my Doctor for many, many years when He and his Father (My Doctor) were here near in CR and in the new Ahn Medical Center 855 Wright Bros Blvd CR. He is the best Doctor one can have. Thank you Peter.

She had my daughter do an MRI, when the neurologist went through the results, which were negative, it was apparent how bothered and annoyed he was by the Dr. Having no reason to order an MRI. Plus I believe she over prescribed antibiotics among several other complaints I have.
