Dr Rendel spent more than an hour with me discussing my back and possible treatments.

I had informed the doctor that I did not want to have to go through a bunch of things that I didn't think was necessary, explain to me the reasons why he would recommend that I do such things. it made sense and made me more comfortable with his treatment plan and procedures that I was not comfortable with before. by treating me like a human being instead of an object. He made me feel very good about any care that I would have with him and the hospital!

Experience with this provider and his staff was positive from beginning to now (still in recovery phase). I have had back surgery before and was dreading this procedure but Dr. Rendel's team made it a much more positive experience. I believe that it is possible that I will have a full, satisfying recovery.

Dr Rendel took the time to discuss/listen to me and my spouse and then explained what his diagnosis was and what he thought would be a good treatment. you do not find many doctors today that can or will even spend that amount of time with a patient. never felt rushed or like he had other things to do. so far (haven't had procedure yet so can't really say how good he is yet) Dr Rendel has been excellent with us.
