I have known Dr. Rensimer for 29 years. I am alive because of him. He knows a patient will tell you what is wrong by listening. He does not miss a thing. Ask around. This is who the other doctors send their complicated, failing, patients to. He is a very kind and genuine man. Well worth the wait. If you feel something is not going your way with his staff all you need to do is let him know. It will be fixed. A mega credit to his profession and our City.

I've been seeing Dr. Rensimer for several years, first for international travel and later also as my internal medicine physician. He listens, is thoughtful and fully explains any diagnosis or medication. He will also go to all ends in order to solve a medical problem. I'm impressed with how much he continues to read and stay on top of the latest medical advances. I agree that sometimes the waits can be long, but worth waiting versus going somewhere else.

Dr Rensimer is the best doctor in his field. He is conservative I’m treatment, listens to all your concerns, looks at all your medical history and makes the best decisions based on your needs. His staff is great. I miss his wife Jane, a nurse who retired. But- he is excellent and I’m thankful for him.

Dr. Rensimer and staff are rare find in Houston. Trying to get in to see an I.D. specialist seems to require booking over a month out in advance in Houston. Rensimer's office made it a point to see me right away with the caveat that I might need to wait awhile once I got there. The staff returns calls promptly and the doc made a point to answer all my questions. Much appreciated.

I have a very complicated health history and I've stumped a lot of medical professionals. Dr. Rensimer gave me hope and knew exactly what to do. I was very ill when I came to him and now I'm back to work full time. He gave me my life back. The wait time is the only negative thing I can say about his office. I know he gives the time and attention to each patient, so this is the nature of the beast. Saying this, I'd rather wait to see him than see anyone else.

I would recommend Dr. Rensimer in a heartbeat. He was so professional and kind he realize my anxiety immediately and placed me at ease. He listened intently to my saga and had looked at my previous records. He knew immediately his next staff. All staff were fabulous and kept me posted as to what our next step was. They were kind and compassionate. The office is somewhat still under construction but is still efficient. Kiki, the first person I spoke with was fabulous. Thank you all!

I had a very serious infection in my left hand which was moving up my arm. Dr. Rensimer systematically diagnosed the disease and gave me the right antibiotic which saved my hand and arm. Dr. Rensimer knows his business when it comes to infectious diseases and I was blessed to get referred to him by Dr. Lopez.

I posted something about their office not getting me a response to my Zika test. I spoke to them yesterday and my emails were not going through. I called yesterday and got a response today. Change to 5 star, my fault. A Hunt
