Very aggressively performs lab work and other tests based on business interests as opposed to what's best for the patient. Frequently uses beliefs of past results as opposed to the results per se, to support these decisions. Is personally very pleasant, listens fairly well, poor bedside manner. If you need medical help she'll get it right away.

I feel like Dr Rader is competent and thorough as she can be expected to be. Health care in the country as a whole may be suffering. I find communication in this office to be a serious problem. Phones ringing and put on hold for greater than 5 minutes may mean you need more staff to handle calls! I just found out (only by calling 2 different times ) that I had test and lab results that should have been communicated to me 5 weeks ago. I had needed treatment and found out accidentally.
