I’ve had Dysautonomia since 2014 and experienced much dismissive treatment. Dr Renk made me feel seen and heard and offered meaningful lifestyle adaptation ideas to support my new diagnosis of EDS.

Highly recommend Dr. Renk!
Dr. Renk is the first person who has been able to figure out the source of my pain! I have been to multiple doctors and clinics over the years and had resigned myself to having to deal with my chronic pain. My primary physician recommended that I see Dr. Renk, so I decided to give her a try and I am so happy that I did. Dr. Renk came up with a treatment plan for me and after years of pain, I finally have relief. I highly recommend that you see Dr. Renk if you’ve been unsuccessful in treating your chronic pain with other doctors. You won’t regret it.

Multiple Treatments
Dr. Renk and her staff are always very organized, patient, thorough and cheerful. I’ve several different treatments there and have had experience with most of her staff, they all have patient-centered values and work to high standards. Navigating insurance with them has always gone smoothly, and there haven’t been any surprises about claims or coverage after treatment. Most importantly, I’m always comfortable and treated with respect; I can tell that’s how the staff is treated as well.

After living with a lifetime of weird and painful ailments, some I (perhaps wrongly) attributed to injuries or just being "normal," I was finally able to receive a diagnosis that made sense and provided a comprehensive picture for all those odd puzzle pieces. I have been through a lot of medical care team members, some fired for not listening to me and others kept for a time as they served me as well as they could and cared. Dr. Renk was very thorough, highly knowledgeable, relatable, compassionate, and genuinely interested in seeing that my goals as a patient are respected as we work on my care plan. She and her team are highly effective and invested in their patient care work. I look forward to building a solid provider-patient relationship over time with Dr. Renk and her staff. I'm happy to have taken the leap from my former providers to Alpenglow, for now I have answers I didn't even know I needed.
