I just wanted to send a little note of thanks to Dr. Michael Rauh. I saw Dr. Rauh back in 2013. I was having a lot of pain in my knees, mostly my right knee. I came to see him with fear that I would need surgery. That did not happen. Dr. Rauh said that I had osteoarthritis in my knees, and that I could try physical therapy. He was so wonderful, he took the time to sit down and talk to me about trying to lose weight. He is the first doctor that really suggested I needed to lose weight, and he did it in such a positive, nice way. At the time of my visit with Dr. Rauh, I was at my heaviest ever – weighing 280 lbs. I have now lost 115 lbs.! I feel that Dr. Rauh has a lot to do with me losing the weight and getting healthy. From the day of my visit with him, I have been so motivated and still think back to the conversation we had.
