Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

She is very arrogant to the point of rudeness. She shook her finger in my face, multiple times. Seeing her was the most unpleasant doctor experience I have ever had. When she got angry with me for speaking my mind, she suddenly decided I needed a rectal surgical procedure, with a flap. I said no, and never went back. My new colo-rectal doctor told me no surgery was needed at all. Please beware of this horrible doctor.

The most uncomfortable appointment I have ever had! I was not asked or told there would be 2 male students in the room for my exam. I have been to teaching doctors many times and have always been asked if it was o.k. for them to be in the room. I can see why she was the only specialist who was able to get me in 4 days. I would not recommend this doctor.

I'll say straight up, I was real sick. Dr Rackinic was a fellow at Thomas Jefferson University. Dr Rackinic had to perform many surgeries on me, I put my total trust in that woman and she never let me down! I was in the hospital for 51 days and she was right by my side the whole time! Her bedside manner is terrific! I could go on, the truth is, I thank God for her! She is well worth seeing!

Arrogant. Does more talking than listening. Every conversation feels like an attack.
