I love my appointments with Alpenglow Pain and Wellness. You have the friendliest staff I have ever met. Not only am I treated kindly and with compassion, I observe how kindly you treat each other as well. The environment is warm and inviting and every single person I encounter during my visits treats me like they truly care about me. That type of environment and experience is a rare treasure, and I am so grateful to be cared for by each of you. You make going to the doctor, a pleasant experience.

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.

It’s a shame that you often meet amazing people due to a difficultly you are having. Dr Renk resonated with me immediately. She listened and responded with tools and procedures that fit my lifestyle. I highly recommend her if you find yourself with a body that is talking back.

Madeline Haff – Jun 23, 2020
This was only my first appointment with Dr. Renk so far, but it went very well! The staff were extremely friendly (especially the person who helped with my chart info - I can’t remember their name but they were fantastic) and overall I left the appointment feeling as though my concerns were heard and very optimistic toward my future care at Alpenglow Pain and Wellness. Like I said, I can only speak about my experience as a very new patient so I can’t say much about procedures yet, but my experience was great. I was very afraid that my concerns would be brushed off like at other places I’ve been to (I’ve had really bad experiences trying to find help when it comes to my health so far), but it wasn’t the case at all. Thank you so much, guys!

I have been seeing Dr. Renk for a few months now and very much enjoying having her as a physician to manage my medical conditions. I love how personable she is and the different approaches she uses to help her patients. I feel very fortunate to have found her and feel very confident in her expertise. Her and her staff are very pleasant and accommodating to my needs and complex schedule and also very thankful for that.
