Learn about Dr. Rackleff

Care Philosophy

Dr. Rackleff is board certified in Infectious Disease, certified in Wound Care, and has a Masters in Public Health in Tropical Medicine from Tulane University. He has nine years of Wound Care experience as a Medical Director at two of the NCH Wound Healing Centers.

When a patient is referred to our clinic, Dr. Rackleff does a full workup including physical exam, labs and cultures, radiography exams, and confers as needed with other physicians. He then develops an individualized plan of care, which may include oral or intravenous anti-infectives, wound care including debridements, compression, or negative pressure therapy.

IV antibiotics are infused right here in our clinic seven days a week, and advanced Wound Care is provided five days a week. We provide all of these services in one place, with a cohesive staff that communicates seamlessly. This prevents lost lab results, medical errors, miscommunication, and allows us to provide outstanding care that exceeds your expectations.

Patient Comments (21)
in Aspen, co |
It was humiliating to be his patient. He insulted me and offered no help but did charge a lot of money.
in Naples, FL |
My first appointment was just to order a bunch of tests, which was fine. When I came back for my results on my second appointment, he found several things that required more time than he allotted to explain and discuss my concerns. Any question I had asked, he literally told me that he didn't have the time to explain, gave me some paperwork with the printouts of his findings and told me to just look them up online. Very unprofessional and actually expected me to make another appointment.
in Naples, FL |
An excellent doctor supported by an excellent office staff. I was completely satisfied by my treatment and experience with Dr. Rackleff and would recommend him without any reservations.

Dr Rackleff and his staff displayed the utmost professionalism and compassion for me during over a two month daily infusion treatment which resulted in successfully treating my infection.
in Naples, FL |
Would highly recommend. Compassion, attentiveness, knowledge, accommodating by doctor and all the staff from the front desk and beyond. No hurriedness to get to the next patient. Treated like a human being and not just a number. As a RN and Certified Care Manager, speaking for my client as well as myself, these qualities are forgotten in today's chaotic medical surroundings.

Couldn't have had a better experience. Adrianna Swan

Dr. Rackleff treated a very serious infectious lower leg would. He had immediate culture and sonograms procedures prescribed for both legs, and proceeded with RX drugs and insiti medications on the wound. Wraps were applied to minimize swelling and debrading was performed as healing progress. Wound photos were taken with each appointment for personal progress records. Staff was very efficient, waiting times were minimal and the Doctor was thorough in explaining care and progress to patient.

in Naples fl |
Hard to get an appointment, unprofessional , does not treat
Very friendly and conciencious. Staff was exceptionally good and well prepared.
in Naples, FL |
Dr. Rackleff and staff stayed past closing to see me when I suddenly developed symptoms. He took a careful history and exam; then sent me to the nearby emergency room. He called ahead, and the ER was expecting me when I arrived. He called in a treatment plan, which he updated as test results became available. He or his nurse practitioner saw me every day in the hospital. After being discharged, I visited his clinic for intravenous antibiotics. Well done and thank you, Dr. Rackleff and Muriel!

Dr. Rackleff takes a complete medical history, performs a complete medical exam, and prescribes appropriate treatment. Most importantly, Dr. Rackleff listens!! I do not mind waiting for excellent health care.
in Bonita Springs, Florida |
I went to see Dr Rackleff knowing nothing about him. I was delighted at how understanding and kind he was . He was upbeat and confident. When I returned for a follow up after taking the meds he prescribed, I told him I read up on everything pertaining to my infection and ordered a book on holistic practices to prevent reoccurrences. He told me he was glad I did my homework. That statement in itself won me over. I recommend him highly! Top notch!
