I had a scary condition and Dr. Rau set my mind at ease and through his care and guidance I've almost completely recovered. It's always a pleasure to see him as much as I can't stand going to a Doctors office He is wonderful. Highly recommend !

Friendly, efficient office staff, caring, compassionate nursing staff. I was an anxious wreck and they were wonderful while they worked to keep me calm. Dr Rau spent time with me also, explaining everything and helping ease my anxiety. I highly recommend this medical practice.
