Would never recommend this doctor. Rude, could care less about his patients. His staff was lovely. Trusted them more than him. Would not send my worst enemy to the doctor.

Dr. RAUCH Literally saved me from endless days of vertigo due to my Meniere's disease. Very accessible and willing to educate his patients. Made me feel as though I could continue a normal life. I highly recommend Dr Rauch to everyone who may suffer from vertigo

Avoid this doctor at all cost! Rude, arrogant and does not care at all for patient's suffering. Does not listen; likes to hear himself talk. He thinks he's a teacher lecturing a stupid student. He did not help me at all; waste of time and money. Offered no solution or treatment. I think he should not be practicing medicine. He even said Meclizine is not for dizziness! They should retire this guy!

We read the reviews of Dr. Rauch and I must vehemently disagree with them. Dr. Rauch was generous with his time, very informative, did not encourage us to see our situation as hopeless and promised to set us up with a doctor in our area and remain part of the treatment plan. The reviews I have read are misleading and unfair. This is a doctor with whom I am impressed and I am not impressed with too many.

He told me the next time I have an acute hearing loss episode that he wouldn't prescribe prednisone which was what my prior specialist had done for prior episodes. He said he didn't believe what my prior doctor had diagnosed me with and would allow for me to lose my hearing in my 2nd ear, believing it would return. Is that a risk you would take after 20 yrs??! Overall, poor listener who loves to hear himself talk. Minimum care delivery, lacking basic empathy. Avoid!

He has terrible bedside manner and delivered sensitive information too bluntly. Rude.
