I only saw him twice, and it was a long time ago--35 years--but I'll never forget it. I was 13 and in full-blown shunt failure. He did everything necessary to dx me, operated promptly, and conducted my followup as a true, compassionate professional. That was in 1980, and I STILL have that shunt, working wonderfully. Thank you, Dr. Rawe!
He is a neurosurgeon. He is the best doctor we have ever had. In the 38+ years, we have only needed him a half a dozen times, but every one of those times it was a matter of life or death. He saved my husband's life and brains. Smartest doctor in the building. Phenomenal surgeon. Brilliant mind. Great communicator. Cool, calm and collected under stress. In charge, has a plan and immediately puts patient at ease. Never made a mistake or even a misstep. We have always felt safe when my husband was in his hands. In those 38 years my husband has seen well over 300 doctors; 100 in 2014 alone. He is heads and shoulders above the rest. Dr. Rawe has all of the traits of the perfect physician.
First experience went well. At first the staff and Dr. Rawe were very nice and helpful. After 2-3 check ups and calls for questions and concerns I was told by the PA and Dr. Rawe that I was wasting their time. I have been very skeptical and worried about the surgery due to the severity of the procedure. I feel as if the office deals with it on a regular basis and does not see the side of the patient who could be very hesitant to have a spinal cord surgery. I was told of a potential surgical date by Dr. Rawe and was given time to think about it. I called that day to confirm. I have now waited 3-4 business days without any response on a potential surgical date.
This doctor...has performed multiple needed surgeries on my spine...starting in 1994. He's the best and is the only doctor I want touching my spine! He's awesome. I love him. so do my grown up kids and old hubby. follow up after visits....I can't recall any doctor doing that much anymore. it would be a nice touch tho :)
