Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Fantastic Doctor
Absolutely fantastic Doc, he truly does care for his patients and is very thorough in his work. I have no doubt that if I look up Health Professional in the dictionary this man's face would be front and center. In all seriousness though, i dont think i can write review glowing enough to praise this man, all I can say is that if you have any doubts about his proficieny or his passion for his craft, put them aside because he truly is one of the best around.

Highly Recommend
I’ve visited Dr. Rethnam’s office a couple of times in the last year. From general checkups, to weight loss advice, and hypertension. Dr. Rethnam approaches medical conditions and overall health of the patient from a holistic standpoint. He takes the time to explain everything well and answers your questions. In addition to the office staff being very approachable, setting appointments and getting onboarded as a new patient was very easy. The overall experience was great as the wait times are low and convenience of off site blood work collection. I highly recommend Dr. Rethnam and his staff!
