    Patient Testimonials

    What sets Dr. Rothenberg apart is that the medicine that he practices is transformative.  He has improved my quality of life and my level of productivity in amazing ways.  As I write this, I realize that I can never fully convey in wordswhat a difference Dr. Rothenberg has made in my life.  I am incredibly blessed to have him as my partner in health care, and in transforming my senior years to years of possibility I never could have imagined or achieved without Dr. Rothenberg as my doctor.’

     –          Helen S.

    ‘Dr. Rothenberg is everything you want in a doctor. Knowledgeable, intelligent, caring, and available. He is a dying breed.  A solo practitioner with no bureaucracy between you and the doctor. ‘

    –          Sallyann S.

     ‘I think Dr. Rothenberg is wonderful. My wife and I have both been patients for over 10 years. When you go to see Dr. Rothenberg, you actually spend time with him and this is not always a benefit that you receive at other physicians’ practices. Dr. Rothenberg not only is great at following up with us on medical issues but is also very proactive with our care. He will call us between office visits to make sure we doing okay and makes sure that we are staying on top of the treatment plan that he created for us. We are very lucky to have him as our physician.’

            –     Ryland M.

    ‘I have been a patient of Dr. Rothenberg for over 30 years. I feel very comfortable with him and he has seen me through two major health crises in my life. Because he takes his time and follows up on his patients, he was able to diagnose a serious condition that I would have never known I had. If you need a great general practitioner, he is the one to go to.’

     –          Rosalie W.        

    I am a nurse so I want my doctor to be attentive and give excellent care. After my daughter and myself interviewed Dr. Rothenberg, I knew he was the right doctor for me. For the past 37 years, he has taken care of my entire family. As a result, he is able to recognize the health problems that run in our family. Everything he has done has been right on the money! He is patient, takes his time and will actually examine you. Now that I am 84 years old, I take only one medication because of Dr. Rothenberg’s focus on preventive care.

    –          Julie P.

    Dr. Rothenberg is compassionate, organized, focuses on the patient first, and has endless patience. He is the most unique doctor that I have ever met. My whole family has been a patient of Dr. Rothenberg for over 37 years and the past 15 years, we have traveled over 4 hours to our appointments and haven’t missed one yet.  He is awesome as he was the first physician to help me stabilize my weight with his focus on diet as well as time spent on managing my overall health.  Because he takes the time to personally follow up with our specialists and each of us individually. he has kept my whole family out of the hospital.
