One Star

This man is an insurance company IME hack. I advise you to bring a witness with you. Without a witness the exam will take less than ten minutes. The majority of that time the doctor spends writing and ignoring anything you say. The results of the exam are guaranteed to be exactly what the insurance company wants.

I think Dr. Ratzan is a great doctor. He diagnosed my problem and knew immediately what the problem was. Of course he sent me for the MRI and it said exactly what he diagnosed. He's nice, his staff are nice and he's easy to talk to.
