Patient Comments (1)
in Amarillo, TX |
Dr. Rathjen preformed 2 scoliosis surgeries on me when I was 12 and 15. I am now 24 with absolutely NO problems. Dr. R spent an adequate amount of time with me at every pre-surgery and follow up appointment. My mom is a nurse and he would take the time to explain things on both her level and my level each visit. He even personally checked on me hourly throughout the night when the anesthesiologist had made a mistake with my epidural. I would without a doubt recommend him as a pediatric surgeon!
