Asked for my preferred treatment and didn't argue with what has worked for me for years. ( past providers have argued which only makes my pain worse)

Best place I've been to

I transferred to Iowa Specialty from a different hospital system for these very reasons.

She tries to understand me even when I have a problem saying the right words.

October 28, 2023

I am always treated kindly, with patience and with respect. I love that Dr. Etnier doesn't stand at the door as she is treating you. She is very much part of the conversation and makes sure your questions are answered.

Not bad

Thank y'all for your service!

Dr. Etnier is excellent. Very thorough!

July 29, 2023

The purpose of my appointment was to establish care with this provider. Unfortunately my records from the a different healthcare system had not arrived for her to review before my appointment. We went through some basic needs I have at this time & she gave me helpful suggestions. We have a Wellness physical set up in September. Again a helpful & friendly person. I was a little uncertain about making this change from a healthcare system I had been a part of since the "70's" but thankful I have made this move.

As I was experiencing vision issues, she suggested I visit the optometrist, which I did. It is good to know that *Dr. Etnier will recommend other doctors when needed.

Happy with Dr Rachael and our interaction.

November 20, 2022

I felt listened to and cared for through the entirety of the visit; that is something I have rarely seen with all that I have been through this past year and with the various medical staff I have dealt with elsewhere. I finally have confidence in my healthcare team and believe that I am headed in the right direction for a healthy and happy life.

October 29, 2022

I always recommend Rachael Etnier to family and friends.

October 15, 2022

Dr. Etnier was wonderful! I had the same doctor for 25+ years until she retired. I was not excited about finding a new doctor, but I am thrilled to have found Dr. Etnier. She is kind, caring, knowledgeable, and helpful. She spent a great amount of time getting to know me and listen to my concerns. I am happy to have found Dr. Etnier and I will recommend her and this clinic to everyone.

October 7, 2022

First visit with Dr. Etnier, she is great, very knowledgeable, and personable. She addressed all my concerns and openly discussed treatment options. What a blessing to have another DO to see at the Garner clinic. Welcome to the community Dr. Etnier!

September 28, 2022

I cannot speak highly enough about my visit with my doctor during this visit. I came here for a second opinion and some unresolved issues from an er visit in Mason City. I was very nervous going to a new clinic and working with a new dr that didn't know me after being frustrated and let down by two previous providers. I felt extremely informed, heard, and seen at Iowa Specialty Clinic with Dr Etiner!

September 21, 2022

I've never felt more heard in any other clinic. The doctor listened to every concern and unlike doctors I've seen elsewhere, showed genuine care and concern.

August 30, 2022

So happy that Dr. Etnier joined us

August 21, 2022
