Its not always about red meat allergy!! :(

Went in for repeated infections and they diagnosed me with red meat allergy! Then insisted that this is the final answer to all my prayers (not!). It's terrible when the doctor gets stuck and forces the diagnosis down your throat despite the fact that your symptoms and what's being said do not match! What's the point of such doctor visits and wastage of patient's resources, when the problem stays unresolved. This place is a circus and the staff are just mechanical cogs. Enough said!

Kids w allergies

Doctor Rakes and some of staff is excellent and warm and caring! One nurse is abrupt and office forgot to inform nurses we were present one day, so we waited an hour in waiting room. Then supplies had not been ordered, so we were told to return another day; for that date we received a phone call due to doctor sudden vacation plans. **Practice is too large, so disconnected. **

Things were somewhat reasonable years ago, now its all about the $$$...

Things were somewhat reasonable years ago, now its all about the $$$... He wanted to do oral challenges for food items that we could eat at home anyway without any symptoms. He had a mass factory of such patients - several of the ones we talked to had negative skin tests but they insisted on challenging anyway....

exceptional

I initially saw Dr. Rakes for my seasonal allergies and sporadic breakouts of hives. Dr. Rakes provides great recommendations, accurate diagnoses, and thorough follow-ups. He listens to my concerns and communicates in a respectful, caring manner.

He's good, policies and staff not so much.

We've used Dr. Rakes for years for our child. He has always been quite warm, thorough, and good with kids. However, his policy requiring a visit before updating an epi-pen for a life-long allergy is merely money grubbing. No valid medical reason and very inconsiderate of working families. Then there is the staff. Ranging from unfriendly to down right rude.
