I found Dr Ratliff very warm, caring and a good listener. He didn't waste my time or money requiring unnecessary X-rays prior to first appt (which was the case for Dr Reilly at RWC whom I cancelled my appt with). we discussed the situation that lead me to the need for the appointment, took care of the issue and advised me how to prevent recurrence in the future. Great appointment! Two thumbs up to Dr Ratcliff!

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I was told that instead of six weeks how I'd have to wait 12 weeks to have the screw in my foot removed. Doc knows I'll be living in a different state by then.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Very rude and didn't spent the time, or seem too concern in my problem of helping me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

the doctor did an excellent job of relieving the pain in my toe, quickly and efficiently

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr Ratcliff was condescending and judgmental. While a lot of what he said made sense, he was very quick to provide judgement - my shoes were old, where I shop for shoes today isn't great, my shoe brand of choice isn't good, etc., etc. I'm looking for someone who will work with me and be less judgmental. I"m a highly disciplined person and can make lots of different changes to my lifestyle to get better. But not with Dr Ratcliff.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Ratcliff is always very direct and on point. Listens closely, then advises. His style promotes confidence in his abilities and his advice.
