I was referred to dr Rachlin and told he was very involved in naturopathic medicine. I showed up to my appointment on time and eger to address a few health concerns I felt needed to be addressed. Upon meeting dr Rachlin I realised that his method of treatment was not to address what I was there for, but rather to aimlessly "prescribe" that I buy herbal supplements from his office at 2x the price WAL-MART sells the exact same product for. In addition, he prescribed that I get an ultrasound. I explained that I am in fact an ultrasound tech and I could easily have that test done free of charge and I would rather no pay my insurance for it. Dr Rachlin office insisted that I have the test done at his office and his staff insisted that they had contacted my insurance and the test was 100% covered. Against my better judgement I let this scammer office talk me into the test... On my next visit I went over the results of my extensive bloodwork and ultrasound (all of which were normal.. ultrasound was unnecessary). Afterwhich I was again instructed to purchase herbal supplements through their office and again I declined. A few months later I received a bill in the mail from a company I had never heard of for $500.00 for ultrasound services. I immediately called dr Rachlin office and was told that I should not worry and that they would take care of the bill since they had told me it would be covered 100%. I assumed that this would be the last of it. Unfortunately, a month later I received the same bill again. Again I called dr Rachlin to discuss. Again I was told it would be taken care of. The next day I was informed by dr rachlins office that they would not be taking care of this bill afterall.. they said that they had spoken to my insurance and as it turns out the test was not fully covered as they had assured me it was. They said it's my fault I didn't know about my own insurance. This is how dr Rachlin and his staff treat patients. They make cause promises. They have unnecessary and very costly tests performed so they can bill your insurance as much as possible. And they "prescribe" herbal supplements and tell you they are special and can't be bought elsewhere, meanwhile, the exact brand is sold at Wal-Mart at a fraction of the cost. I feel scammed. I feel like this doctor uses the guise of naturopathic medicine to aimlessly perform costly and unnecessary tests for the purposes of billing your insurance as much as possible. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS DOCTOR'S SHADY PRACTICE.. DON'T BE FOOLED

the Rachlin center offers first class treatment as far as medical offices go. Dr. Rachlin is a pioneer in alternative medicine and thorough with his patients. Offered a comprehensive bloodwork analysis and staff was amazing! Highly recommend those seeking a doctor who practices born traditional and holistic medicine
