He was a wonderful doctor that saved my sons arm from being amputated after a dirt bike accident. He performed 4 surgeries on his arm and a skin graft. He checked on my son all the time and always seemed to smile and make my son feel better no matter how much he was hurting.

Would not recommend this doctor, have seen him twice and both times I was not happy.The first time I thought he was just having a bad day, but I guess that's just the way he works. He was rude, intimidating, did not like to be questioned, and very much into my personal space. He didn't really try to understand my concerns for my son...visit did not end well that as he left he slammed the door behind him. He may be a very good doctor and all but he needs to practice more on interacting with patients and their family.

The most rude, sarcastic doctor who does not like to be questioned. I recommend you definitely find a different doctor. Terrible experience.

Dr. Rathjen is very knowledgeable and spends time with the patient and answers any questions we may have, He has been my son's doctor since he was few days old and I like the way the treatment has been going. He explains things clearly and pays attention to our concerns. As with any busy physician, it may take some extra 30 minutes to see the doctor, but, its my child's health and its worth the wait.
