Mount Horeb, WI |
Extremely arrogant and more interested in bashing insurance companies than servicing clients. Horrible listener and a cowboy mentality. Avoid this physician

I have total confidence in Dr. Rinehart's ability . I have been a patient for over 10 years. I decided it was time I take time to acknowledged his professionalism and good care.
in Des Moines, IA |
the surgery was fine but the ease of scheduling an appointments was horrible They canceled a scheduled appointment and then pushed me back three weeks - since we weren't having any problems I wasn't in any hurry to get appointment rescheduled - a few weeks later my son developed a double ear infection, no one would see me - ended up in urgent care, no one would see me for two weeks and when I called to confirm appointment - they didn't have it on the books. it got worse but i'm out of character
