Took my newborn son to him with a tongue-tie. He made these brand new parents feel completely at ease, explained exactly what he was going to do, and told us it wasn't going to hurt him. A doctor that can put your mind at ease is hard to find these days. I highly recommend Dr. Rechtweg, would see him myself but the practice doesn't take GHI.

I highly recommend Dr. Rechtweg- he's a PHENOMENAL doctor. I have recently undergone my first (and hopefully last) surgery and he made the experience as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Definitely consider visiting him if you like a Dr. with a great sense of humor- he always manages to crack some pretty funny jokes! Overall, Dr. Rechtweg has provided me with exceptional care. I appreciate how friendly, knowledgable, and comforting he is towards his patients! 10/10 would recommend.

I've been suffering all summer with allergies that my primary Doctor hasn't been able to address for me. I'm now 2 weeks out from my visit with Dr. Rechtweg and I am like an entirely new person. Plus, he was really sweet, funny and took time to answer my questions. And his waiting room was full, but he didn't rush me.

Conservative approach to a on going problem due to oxygen. Very specific instructions, demonstrated, and was gentle. I will be seeing him for my condition when necessary as he recommended. He is not an alarmist.
