Dr. Rekate saved my life. I was born with a rare form of spina bifida, tethered spinal cord, etc. I was his first ever surgery for this type of spina bifida 32 years ago! I finally went back to Barrow's Neurological today for a consult and wish he was still here in Arizona so that I could thank him in person for performing my surgery as a newborn. I feel so blessed I could walk, workout, pretty much do every day things without hesitation all because of him! Thank you Dr. Rekate! -Melissa S.

Dr. Rekate is the best. We saw 6 or 7 doctors in Texas before finding Dr Rekate. He found what was wrong with my son after other doctors could not. He is different because you can tell he has compassion. He truly cares. He is unique!

Dr. Rekate in my eyes is a hero, he saved my sons life. My son had a type 1 chari after going to DC, john hopkins, Baltimore, Philadelphia, we finally found him. After years of everyone saying no that there is nothing wrong with him or that he is just making it up, Dr. Rekate said yes there is something wrong. I can remeber perfectly him saying Imake no promises that'll work" and all i could do was say " if there is the smallest chance it'll make him feel better we'll do it"patrick is healthynow
