Dr Rakita was very patient with me and took the time to listen to my concerns. He took the time to explain what was going to happen moving forward and what to expect from the prescribed testing. The entire experience in the office was respectful and courteous from beginning to the end. I can not begin to thank Dr Rakita enough for taking the time with me to listen to me ramble and explain what to expect moving forward. Thank you again to all in the office

They had to put 2 defibrillators in me in 5 months so I came to Dr Rikita through [...] and he has worked through all these problems I have had and gotten them all straightened out. He listens. He understand and he is great. The longer I go to him the more I like him! He is as good if not better than my Dr at [...]. I am so glad I changed to him!
