"I traveled from Philadelphia to see Dr. Rekate, I've also traveled to IL to see a neurosurgeon, in addition to many other neurosurgeons that I've seen in PA/Philadelphia. By far Dr. Rekate has offered me the most information, has looked passed my diagnosis on paper to focus more on the entire picture, offered more insight on my "condition," potential causes & treatments, and ultimately has given me more hope & I believe more options. Out of countless doctors, specialists & neurosurgeons from a big city like Philadelphia all the way to Chicago, Dr. Rekate was the only one to pick up on a major red flag everyone else seemed to overlook. It was above & beyond worth the trip, and I am forever indebted to Dr. Rekate, his knowledge & expertise!"

"My care provider kept an open mind to try to get me back to actually living."
04/09/2015
