This provider is a bottom of the barrel MD. She is not certified in functional medicine. I later went to my naturopath and she removed a couple of my supplements and switched some around on when to take them - it worked.

Dr. Rausch was very thorough and detailed. She did not make assumptions and considered carefully any questions I had. I know she is very busy but her manner is not rushed and she was attentive and fully present during the visit.
