If I could give a negative star review I would. I found Dr Rakel to be lacking in diagnostic skills and short sighted in her approach to treatment methodologies and clearly did not listen to her patients feedback. The so called integrated approach used in her office fuels this attitude as information shared with another doctor there in confidence (counseling session regarding patients past) made its way into a tirade from Dr Rakel when her frustration mounted. Unprofessional? I'd say a breach of doctor/patient confidentiality. Beware of this office, this practice and this doctor in particular. Steer well clear.

This is the best doctorI have ever had in my life -- and I am 68! She is a homepath, she gives B venom injections, she has studied with Dr. Andrew Weil and gives intelligent infomation about alternative medicine. And she has a sense of humor as well as a wonderful, warm personality

Dr. Rakel is a wonderful physician. She's thorough, caring, sensitive, and compassionate. I appreciate her knowledge about integrative medicine and how she artfully melds it with allopathic medicine as needed.
