This doctor did not ask me how I was feeling...what my concerns were. Though he is very charming, there was no concern...he decided that I had no problems that needed addressing. When told to schedule a future appointment, he stated that I will be seeing another doctor in the office. In other words...bugger off. Really not helpful at all...thanks for a good cry.

Dr. Rettinger is a great doctor. He gave you the confidence you need to know to follow a treatment or answers your questions with a human language. He is an amazing doctor I really recommend it to any one looking for a medical answer or second opinion.

Dr. Rettinger isn't a knowledeable gentleman. He seems efficient with time providing accurate and helpful information for the patient. He as able to pinpoint just what is necessary. He is calm with a great sense of humor.

I was a patient of Dr Rettinger for several years and was not unhappy until I asked about a new treatment and sent him med J articles (several) that I wanted to discuss trying since my BG is out of control. One of his assistants called me and said they don't do that. I asked if one of the doctors could respond to the med J articles I sent and she hung up on me. I will be looking for another endocrinologist that provides better service. And perhaps reads the med Journals. Arnold Vagts, PhD

I have been attended by Dr Rettinger for at least 4 years. He has garnered an efficient staff around him so that I always feel welcomed and care for-from the very pleasant receptionist to all the nurses. Dr Rettinger is careful to answer my questions and does not rush the appointment. I have no intention of changing endocrinologists.
