I have been with Dr. Rael for about 5 years. She is very concerned for the entire individual and not just for the pulmonary problem (COPD) that she is working on currently with me. To me she is a Doctors Doctor. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. I would use 1 word to evaluate her. FANTASTIC
