Dr. Rankin has saved my eyesight in the past per my ophthalmologist. It has been stable for years! He is an excellent diagnostician but he is not a warm and fuzzy kind of guy!

Very good practice.

It took me a minute to warm up to Dr. Rankin; he seems very concerned about projecting an image of authority and expertise, which I have never doubted that he has. But one day, after I had had a procedure that was especially difficult for me, he spoke to me with such warmth and compassion that I really changed my mind about him. I think he should show this side of his personality more; we already know that he is terrifically capable: what we need in addition to that is to know that he cares about us. I'll just add that the folks on his medical staff all hold Dr. Rankin in high regard, both for his expertise and for his kindness. But for some reason his kindness was not made evident to me until recently.
