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.
