    I saw Dr. Rankin in Germantown, MD. I'm not sure that he still practices at Temple. Regardless of where he practices, he's one of my favorite physicians I've ever met. Very good at explaining things and when I started to ask detailed questions, he understood quickly that I wanted to truly understand the anatomy and dove into great detail. He was sympathetic to my concerns about my high deductible plan and didn't perform unnecessary tests. I can't recommend him enough.
