SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Recht is one of the highest rated doctor's I deal with across the board. I wish I could get another department (example: Stanford Urology) to even come close to any of the Stanford neuro or Stanford E.N.T. doctors I'm taken care of under.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Recht is the "stud" of neuro's!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Recht is the BEST!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Both Gwen & Dr. Recht showed patience, care, encouragement & deep understanding & compassion on a day that was very hard & emotional for me.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

good

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Recht has an uncanny ability to converse with me. Thank you for your insight & thoughtfulness in my health care over the years.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

The best medical care I could have expected. Dr. Recht also called, in a radiation oncologist to do a preliminary eval. which resulted in updated MRI needed ASAP.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Recht & his entire staff are terrific.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I am very happy with Dr. Recht and couldn't ask for a better oncologist.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Medication called in to pharmacy with incorrect instructions. Chemo cycle was stopped without telling me (I had asked if it could be temporarily stepped) with no further discussion (found out a week later).

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

When I go there I know every thing is going to be fine.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

All experiences were good.
