Ratings for Dr. Tedde M. Rinker
Dr. Rinker was no help at all. After waiting 4 weeks for an appointment, and then 90 minutes at the office, I was told some patients "got dropped" in the computer and I'd have to wait another 4 weeks for another appointment. I explained that I took off from work to come in, and that I needed to discuss a new medication. Dr. Rinker asked how long it had been since I'd taken this particular med and I told her 12-18 months, to which she replied, " well then I think you can wait another month." !!! I feel like she judged me before I even said a word to her and then diagnosed based on those assumptions. Not what you're looking for in the helping professions. She smugly apologized for the clerical error but would "not be able to help me. Come back in 4 weeks." I won't be there.
I went to Dr Rinker with myriad, chronic issues and she diagnosed me with Lyme disease. For that I am grateful, as it appears to explain my entire illness picture. I began treatment with her and while I liked her and she seems knowledgable, initial treatment included multiple meds all at once and I ended up in ER. Hard to get past that.
Dr. has been treating people with multiple hormone deficiencies for many years, and doing supportive therapies for patients with Lyme Disease. She is now training to treat Lyme Disease through ILADS preceptorship and is accepting Lyme patients for treatment.
Dr. Rinker is very smart. She has a holistic view of the person and respects her patient's needs and point of view. She works hard to find the causes of a persons distress, and tries to explain complex issues. I believe she saved my life, after seeing over 15 other specialists.
