I was very pleased with my encounter. Doctor was very thorough and detailed. I especially liked the fact that he wanted to make sure I was absolutely fine before leaving the office, and the time spent surpassed any appointment I have ever had. No rush, and everyone got quality time and attention. Can finally say I am extremely pleased with my provider.

Dr. Rankin is the best. He is very thorough explain everything so that you understand. My favorite Doctor hands down!!! He is very busy and if he said he is going to call you back you can believe it. Dr. Rankin will call and talk to you on a Sunday. So grateful for Dr. Rankin. You often get doctors that just want to talk fast get mad when you have a question but not Dr. Rankin. He cares and that's rare with doctors these days. Trust you will not regret it.

Long time patient of Dr. Rankin (my whole family sees him). He is the most thorough doctor and although the wait time can be long, it is well worth it to receive his comprehensive care.

I've been a patient of Dr. Rankin's for several years. He's always professional, courteous, and respectful. Although the wait time can be lengthy, it is well worth it. Once you are in his office you can understand the reason for the wait. He treats each patient as if you are his only priority. He never rushes through an appointment. He is extremely thorough and follows up each visit with a phone call to review any lab work. I would recommend him to anyone.
