Very hard to get appointments; Nice guy, but I sometimes wonder about his quick diagnoses. As I've gotten older I have started to question his knowledge of my illnesses and the medicines interactions. Nurse and most staff are nice and friendly but the gal up front - Kim - Horrible.

HORRIBLE! i do not recommend Dr. Rathkamp for ANYONE. his staff is incredibly rude. Kim needs to be fired, as she shares medical information of his patients with random people. Dr. is a HUGE pill pusher, basically you are just another patient to him. Stay away at all costs. This place is so terrible.

This doctor is obviously very healthy. Age or illness has not hit him yet. If your looking for a friend or a cold and flu doctor you got him...As far as for a more difficult sickness, I found him to be poor at best! Sorry Doc, nice guy, but I don't need any more friends

Office open 9am-4pm Mon-thurs. Answering service takes calls (no messages) 9-9:30, 12-2, and after 3:30. No overnight vm, no vm option for script renewals. My children and I saw doc first visit each (3 years ago), all subsequent visits were with nurse, and requests to see doctor denied, despite how far in advance appt booked. Office staff takes forever to return calls and rude. If I want bloodwork done for annual, I have to request it.

Love Dr. Rathkamp. His staff is very nice with the exception of kim. She is less than friendly, especially on the phone.

Dr. Rathkamp is very kind and compassionate. He listens with empathy and runs on time--big bonus. His P.A. Shelly Bowerman, is awesome, she practices the same way he does. Much to be desired by the staff...they are nice, but it takes a long time to get a script filled, phone calls answered, and to get an appointment. I worry that I may get lost in the shuffle, I am on a couple of medications that I absolutely can not be with out, so I hope they will call in the scripts promptly and get me a in at a convenient time according to my work schedule.

The hours are so terrible! I love the staff and the doctor, but I can never get anyone on the phone and I can never get a script refilled becuase I can't get a hold of them. Also now that they are part of McLaren the answering service is not very kind. Looks bad on a really nice office to have rude people answer after hours. Also now that he's part of McLaren the prices have increased.
