What People Say About Dr. Kevin Rathke, MD
Reply
My child sustained a traumatic brain injury and he was our first physician encounter after her TBI. Even though she failed the post-concussion memory testing twice (10 days apart, doing worse the 2nd time than the first) she automatically was labeled as an ADHD kid because she had OT for sensory processing differences in preschool. He referred us straight to developmental pediatrics (in the same office) for ADHD testing and medication and later said that he felt like my daughter's issues were all "psychological". Funny considering she has had to have extensive testing, therapy, and support services for the TBI over the last 2 years, and none of her providers think ADHD had anything to do with it.. and we still don't have an applicable diagnosis of ADHD, but we do have a resounding TBI diagnosis from all providers.

He has made an amazing connection with my child who has autism. He is kind, caring and listens to any concerns that we have. He explains everything in detail and helps us understand my son's disabilities. I would highly recommend to anyone.
