My Baby Is Healthy And Happy And I Owe It All To YouJanuary 7, 2014 We are back from Brazil and have been doing eggs for a week now. We have successfully added eggs back into Lucca's diet! So just to remind you where are, we added wheat a few weeks back to his diet, then mine. Eggs are in his now and I'll add to mine now as well. I'm so pleased with how much you've helped us get to this point and can't tell you how many less capable doctors missed his serious illness that you have seemingly easily guided us through. Outside of recommending you to every friend I have with a reflux baby, what can I do to repay you? My baby is healthy and happy and I owe it all to you. Janine R. She Is The Best By Far. We Love Her! July 30, 2013 Dr. Rekhtman is the 3rd Ped. GI we've seen. She is the best by far. She is encouraging and accessible, and encouraged all my questions and input. If we had brought our older son to her, I am sure his diagnosis would not have been missed, as it was by 2 other docs. We love her! C. Gluck First Time He Has Never Cried June 9, 2013 "Our son has been to many doctors in his young life. This is the first time he has never cried or had teary eyes. Dr. Rekhtman immediately made him comfortable." A. Eisenhardt Incredible Doctor. Highly Recommend Her! June 13th, 2013 Doctor Rekhtman treated my two children, both of whom are teenagers and had stomach pain that persisted. She is very nice, always followed up, and has a great bedside manner. For me, her Sunday hours made things easy (I'm not sure whether this would work for everyone). I personally have only had positive experiences with her, and I highly recommend her. I think my kids would recommend her also. I am impressed by her medical ability. My kids think that she's "cool." Jill F., Potomac, MD Great experience! June 13th, 2013...
