    Absolutely satisfied with the attention and professionalism.

  • Jun 12, 2019

    Rachel Postman has been a great provider. She always lets me know firsthand what the problem is, if the issues I've been having can be solved immediately or if I need to be recommended for a specialist. She knows that I don't like taking medicine so she also, you know tries to work ways around what would be good without taking medicine and she's really patient and understanding of my conditions even though a lot of my conditions require medicine and I don't like to take medicine. So I know that I can be a difficult patient. She's been very patient and understanding and kind and I like her as a doctor and a person.

  • Jun 12, 2019

    She was very prompt and very thorough and very friendly I would recommend her to anybody.

  • Jun 08, 2019

    Rachel's great. She's very present in all visit. She is efficient, but doesn't seem hurried and I have the sense that there's continuity from visit to visit that she knows me as one of her patients and I appreciate it.

  • Jun 06, 2019

    She is incredibly talented in staying fully present. Her thoughtfulness and knowledge about appropriate treatments to make my symptoms more manageable is greatly appreciated. I never feel blamed for my hesitancy, indecision, or emotions. I feel like she has partnered with me to alleviate my symptoms, and I trust her with my care and my children's care.

  • May 18, 2019

    She did a great job.

  • May 15, 2019

    I've been with Rachel now for over 2 years and with me being as sick as I am I can't see putting my care in anybody else's hands. She's an amazing very very trusting care provider and I am so glad she's mine.

I just can't say enough good things about her.

    Yeah, I came over from Kaiser. I was doing the tapering off of the methadone of a pain clinic medicine I was receiving, and I wasn't getting anywhere tapering off Kaiser, and I went to to Rachael and she saved my life. And bottom line. Thank you very much, Rachael Postman.

  • Jan 14, 2019

    I came in yesterday from my appointment. I messed up on the time and instead of Dr. Flex I got Dr. Rachel. She's great. You know really she took the time to listen. She told me what's happening with my body and the problem having stuff. I'll admit I was a little leery, so used to Dr. Clarks, but talking to Rachel, she was great. Let me know that girl. She definitely deserves a 10. She's nice. She's kind. She's courteous and I like her, I never have a problem worried about you know, how good is my doctor.

  • Jan 13, 2019

    I think she's done a wonderful job for me. She's very considerate and very accurate. I'm very happy with her.

  • Jan 12, 2019

    She is great. Really cares knows what she's doing. Still young. Might need to be a little bit more...each case, but I'm sure that's really hard for her, but she really cares, and I...except for maybe still needing to learn a little bit more...a very little bit more, and take everything serious. I think that that does it.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    Doctor is always great, nursing staff and support staff are very good

  • Jan 07, 2019

    Rachel Postman is one of the best providers I have ever had. She is very good at listening and asking the right questions. She doesn't waste time trying to convince you to do things you can't do. She spends as much time as it takes to get the job done.

  • Jan 06, 2019

    She was extremely polite. She was extremely helpful, she was extremely respectful and non-judgmental. She was a very, very good provider and she diagnosed me directly because the antibiotics are working, and I believe that you guys' facility is just - it's renowned and you guys are very non-judgmental. I feel safe there and just for everyone that I'm come into contact with there. So yeah. There you go.

  • Dec 23, 2018

    She was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I felt very informed regarding the issues I was concerned about. She provided me with alot of information to research and consider.

  • Dec 07, 2018

    I felt Rachel was extremely thorough. I had seen her a few weeks prior. She reinforced that I needed to meet my appointment with sports medicine, which I did today, and I plan on switching from Alison Fox to Rachel Postman as my primary care.
