"My experience with Dr. Rachel was great, beginning with the reception all the way to treatment. Dr. Rachel effectively took care of the issue that I came in to see him about and also provided consultation on other areas that I was interested in. He's very friendly, thoughtful, and informative. I will definitely go back to see him."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Rachel for ten plus years. I have never trusted a Doctor's opinion as much as I trust Dr. Rachels. He is methodical, very easy to talk to, and recommends the best procedure to deliver superior results. Due to "gravity" starting to weigh in on my appearance, I decided to move forward with an upper/lower lid Blepharoplasty and a mini lift. The results were great, and I felt at ease with Dr. Rachel's "AWESOME" staff. They made me feel at ease! I recommend Dr. Rachel to any patient seeking a doctor with excellent bedside manners along with a patient, caring, and very knowledgeable doctor."
