Went in for a referral related to Lowe O2 levels. Was diagnosed with moderate COPD. The doctor and her staff were very professional and through. I went through various breathing tests before the office visit. She was very understanding of my situation and very knowledgeable about the struggles my diagnosis entails. The office has been helpful with prescriptions as my insurance doesn't cover some meds. I plan to continue my career with her! So glad my doctor referred me to them.

Dr. Rappai is a polite, affable physician with some good ideas (and she does spend ten to fifteen minutes with you), but the process of getting through the clinic to see Dr. Rappai is not worth it. Why? - you may ask: 1.) It takes many weeks to get an appointment. 2.) The clinic runs 90-120 minutes behind schedule at 'every' appointment - this is nothing short of poor management. 3.) The clinic staff tries to move things along, but they are so over-worked with patients from so many physicians that they cannot keep up. I will seek out a sleep specialist at another clinic. I would prefer to go with a clinic that follows the golden rule and treats my time with the same degree of value that they treat their own.

Dr Rappai saved my life 7 1/2 years ago. She was referred to by case by the Baptist Hospitalist. She never gave up nor did Anna. I had double pneumonia. Due to their care I recovered. I was left with adult onset asthma. I have to see her or Anna twice a year. Brad is wonderful and so is the rest of the staff. In these scary times I’m thankful to know they are there if I need them.

While most of the staff and support personnel are great and efficient Dr. Rappai shows little concern for the patient's time making them wait for without giving a reason or apology. Two hour wait time in an office treatment was accepted as an exception. 4 hour wait for dismissal from the hospital was unacceptable!

Dr. Rappai is an excellent physician....the best! She was my husband's doctor for a number of years, and I cannot say enough positive things about her. She is experienced, knowledgable, kind, straightforward, and goes far beyond the call of duty. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Carolyn Smith

I write this review to warn others. While the staff is amazing and provide unparalleled service the doctor herself brings down the experience. Dr. Rappai cost me my job because of an assumption on a device that was given to me malfunctioned. Dr. Rappai is judgmental and will not properly listen to the patient. I recommend if you have to see this person keep records of everything!

The secretary in the office who called to cancel my appointment was very rude to me - she would not listen to the urgency of my appointment and the time frame in which I needed to see the doctor. I understand Anna wouldn't be there, but it's important to fit in a patient instead of just cancel an appointment - especially one with a time constraint as mine was.
