Dr Rawitcher is kind and personable. I felt at ease He noticed my hand written notes on the recent blood tests and immediately described what each one was indicating. I just know there are doctors out there not willing to take the time to educate a patient with such patience. Really feel I'm in excellent hands. Isn't that what we all want in the end? Thank you
