in East Lansing, MI |
Dr. Rinek is very knowledgeable; he can glance at a skin lesion, and knows right away if it should be of concern or not. He states the medical term and then explains it in plain English. Dr. Rinek relates well to his patients. He is personable, but also very efficient. I think he has his technical staff well-organized to assist him at the start of the office visit, and in taking notes regarding his diagnosis.
Thank you for the positive feedback, 5 star rating and taking the time to post a review.
