SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Sometimes physicians need to speak more straight forwardly.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

The fellow I saw was great, but Recht barely stepped into the room & didn't seem to be all there mentally.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Corbin is so helpful, listens to all concerns and very informative fellow working with Dr. Recht.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

I had a great experience. It was overall good.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Recht is a wonderful physician. He is highly intelligent, yet he is able to speak to the patient's level of understanding.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I valued the time Dr. Recht spent with me. He listened to the patient and explained clearly about the problem.

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.

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.

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.

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