    Compassion and professionalism beyond description

  • June 12, 2024

    I was a new patient, and this was my first appointment with Dr. Reichel; he openly listened to my concerns and issues. He was great. Speaking with him made me feel at ease and unhurried. He's patient and pleasant. He made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I'd want to thank Dr. Reichel for going above and above in our time of need.

    I was not really supposed to come today, but someone canceled and I got in early. I was glad that the person who answered the phone helped me schedule the appointment.
