All around amazing physician.
in Atlanta, GA |
Awesome!!! Very personable, quick and to the point. I like how he won't make you come back just to to tell you your OK, like other physicians. And that he's a physician who the whole family can see. He's extremely thorough If your having surgery.

Dr. Ratner misdiagnosed me with de quervains I actually have a torn schapoid lunate. He was not concerned with my pain at all. He is a horrible doctor.
