Specialties

Dr. R S Rankin has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Didn't care to know

Took my son into the West Shore hospital ER because he passed out. He passed out again in the ER. Dr Rankin said that his blood work looked ok so he was fine. He really didn't care to get to the bottom of why my son passed out 2 times in a 12 hour period. Hope Dr Rankin can sleep tonight, I know I won't be. All he seemed to care about was getting us out as fast as he could. Horrible experience!!!

ER visit

He was the ER Doctor at the Pinnacle Health West Shore hospital. I was in for a blocked kidney stone which eventually became infected. He told me to take some pain meds and go home to pass the stone, you don't need to be here. He then scolded the nurse for hooking me up to a heart monitor an blood pressure to check vitals, "she's here for kidney stones she doesn't need that stuff". He recommended I go home, I luckily asked to be admitted in the hospital, where I spent the the next 4 days with a blood infection and a blocked kidney. I don't think this "dr." Rankin should be allowed to administer a bandaid. If I did go home per his recommendation, I could have died from the infection.

Emergency medical treatment

Dr Rankin was the attending emergency room physician when I was brought in for treatment of a broken shoulder as a result of a fall while skiing. He was very professional and provided excellent service .
