She was knowledgeable in her field, but was not personable and at times even talked down to us. I was very happy with the practice at the office, and would recommend other doctors at WU, but I would not recommend Valerie Ratts to anyone.

Our daughter had a genetic anatomic anomaly and found herself in significant pain. Dr. Ratts correctly diagnosed her problems and performed surgery to relieve her pain and give her the greatest opportunity for conception in her future (she was only 17 at the time). 6 1/2 years later, after only 3 months 'trying', she successfully conceived! We are elated! We are thankful for the correct diagnosis, pain relief, and now for the successful conception!

Dr. Ratts was great, but she did not perform any of the procedures. She set the medical care plan, but other physicians worked the plan. Scheduling is tough. Every attempt to call was answered by voicemail. After leaving a voicemail, you have to wait for someone to call back, which is hard when you can not answer the cell phone while at work.
