Parkville, MO |
As with many other reviews here, I found him to be pompous and condescending. I left there confused and upset at how he treated me. I cancelled all tests and the surgery. No one that treats me like that is going to cut on me, and he was going on about a different surgery I hadn't even heard of. I tried to ask questions and he was unbelievably rude. Four other doctors and years of tests but he said my spine is fine. It was surreal. I'm now getting the correct surgery with another doctor.

gave me the results and recommended what was necessary for my situation- I had weak and numbness in my leg- I had surgery on Tuesday march21 2017- yes 2 days ago- I am now at home up and walking around- from the moment I woke up in the recovery room I could feel the difference- no numbness and a little strength in my leg- I personally love his straight to the point , and his confidence was very reassuring- I would certainly recommend Dr Reintjes to everyone- Thank you I feel truly blessed Andy

I like Dr. Reintjes because he is direct and to the point. He has no problem answering your questions directly without all the hesitation and doctor talk you get from other physicians. He was able to diagnose my problem without alot of unneccasary tests or making me wait another month to fix the problem. Some people may not like is bed side manner, as he is direct and to the point, for me that is a bonus. I will be returning anytime I have a problem with my back.

This doctor did not care to listen to a word I said, was pompous and rude, very uncaring. He acted as though I were wasting his time. Told me I did not need surgery and there was nothing wrong with my spine even though my neurologist thought the complete opposite. My MRI report stated that I have the very problems that he couldn't seem to see that two other doctors saw.
Independence, MO |
shocking rude terrible 1 1\2 hr late for appointment, less than 60 seconds in room stated 3 times that there was nothing wrong with my back, unlike 4 other doctors who stated i needed surgery

Knew within 30 seconds, it wasn't going to work out. I had a list of questions to ask-did not get a chance to ask any of them. He is very condescending and pompous. He asked a question and I asked him to repeat- He acted like i was asking him to sacrifice his first born! Some say he is a good surgeon-don't know don't care. He may be a good mechanic, but he detests the person he is working on! Better to find a good surgeon and someone that actually cares about your body.

He is a provider for Farmer's Ins, Workman's Comp. He is in this for the money, I feel. He gave my fiancee' a note to retrun to work, without examining him. He did not ask him if he was capable of working. The first office visit he recommended surgery, and the next time he saw him, he told him he would not do surgery because of his ITP, when he told him on the first visit it would not be a problem. If you are sent to him for a Work Comp claim, I would fight it. He is unethical.
