My general doctor move to SC. I am so happy I found Dr Rekaby. She answered all my questions with a lot of detail and is very informative and caring . I am very impressed with her knowledge and professionalism

Had questions and concerns about my bloodwork and she refuse to discuss, had issues with referral and it took 2 months to see a specialist to find out nothing wrong.

I have been a patient of this practice in other locations for many, many years. I am THRILLED to have Dr. Rekaby! She is extremely intelligent, having diagnosed issues that I had struggled with and had never been able to get right. She is very kind, patient and caring. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a professional doctor who is warm, caring and kind - plus the benefit of a super doctor! 5 across the board!

I love my doctor. I had her for months And she understands my needs. She is smart and know her stuff.

Please be very careful about what this office tells you is covered by your insurance, they tell you that certain things are covered and when you receive a bill for that service, they say, oh, our mistake, it's not covered. If they can't get this right, what else are they messing up? I called about some medication I was prescribed and they looked at my chart, then asked if I wanted to be referred to a hematologist. She had already done that weeks ago. Not good business for clients.
