Dr. Kretchman and her staff were great! The one and only problem I have is the year long wait for my first appointment. Other than that, all good!

May 29, 2024

As a licensed therapist, I am trained heavily in empathy. I understand doctors are not trained as much so. With that being said, things can be worded differently to portray more empathy and I believe that is needed here.

May 23, 2024

Very professional and knowledgeable. So glad was able to be seen so promptly.

May 22, 2024

GREAT TEAM!!!

May 21, 2024

Really enjoyed the sharing of information on these visits! I learn a lot!

May 20, 2024

I had to wait 1 year to get in for my appointment with Dr. Kretchman but it was well worth the wait. Dr. Kretchman is truly a compassionate provider and its very evident that she puts heart into the way that she practices. Unfortunately it is rare that you find providers who sit down with you and take time to listen to your concerns and encourage your questions. She is a true GEM and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet her and have her a part of my healthcare journey.

May 20, 2024

Dr. Kretchman is one of the best doctor's at Reid! She always listens to what I have to say and never fails to ask if I have any questions. Don't lose this lady! She is a absolute asset to Reid.

May 16, 2024

Dr. Kretchman was excellent and so kind.

May 15, 2024

Yes I did . But one of my family members was going to come but they changed their mind.

May 15, 2024

This Dr and staff are always excellent when it comes to giving compassionate care to their patients. Dr Kretchman gets to know her patients AND family in a personal way and is always there to help, no matter the problem.

May 14, 2024

Erica Kretchman is the best!

Exceptionally thoughtful and caring about my emotional vulnerability.

Apr 29, 2024

Dr Kretchman is very helpful for me! I really appreciate all she has done all these years!

Apr 29, 2024

Thank you!

Apr 25, 2024

I waited 40 minutes to be seen when I was there on time. I was ready to leave when she finally came in. I was only told that my vitamin D was too high and to take less. Nothing about the rest of my blood work or my thyroid. No ultrasound ordered to check the nodules on my thyroid. My time with the Dr only lasted about 5 minutes and I just get the feeling that she could not care less about my situation or my health. She also only gave me a one month refill on my levothyroxine when I don't go back for a year. That doesn't make sense.

Apr 25, 2024

Dr. Kretchman was really nice and knowledgeable.

Apr 25, 2024

They are all amazing in that office.

Apr 25, 2024

Apr 24, 2024

All of the staff are friendly and helpful. Dr. Kretchman was encouraging and positive about progress.

Apr 24, 2024

Since the Infusion Therapy was moved down the lower hallway, it would be helpful to have a rail to hold onto for balance. Many of the patients getting Prolia shos are elderly.

Apr 24, 2024

I appreciate the Very good service!

Courteous and professional

Apr 4, 2024

Both people working with me were considerate, kind and tried to make me comfortable. Answered questions and made me feel less anxious. It really helps patients to have questions answered and feel like they matter. They both were grade A

Apr 3, 2024

GREAT EXPERIENCE

Apr 3, 2024

She said she was willing to look into my illness...I guess that is something and I appreciate that as my illness is rare but for others that suffer this...well they need to keep looking for a doctor...she had very knowledge to help me

Apr 2, 2024

I enjoy the fact that my issues appear to be of the upmost concern for the doctor. I truly appreciate that fact.

Mar 5, 2024

I have told my friends about the wonderful treatment, from this office. I always have, now if Reid Health will continue to keep accepting Anthem Blue Cross, I can remain a patient, an continue my care! I was born at Reid Hospital, been a very loyal customer/patient for along time.... please don't for me to find all new specialist.

Mar 4, 2024

Love Dr Kretchman and staff. Front desk to Mathew as my nurse. thank you

Feb 26, 2024

Staff were very kind and pleasant. I have the Anthem Insurance. I am hoping all works out. Every dr I see is affiliated with Reid. I have NO complaints on any of my care team.

Feb 19, 2024

May be alright to treat a diabetic but is worthless for weight loss

Feb 19, 2024

This is the best doctor I ever had in America. I been here in America since 2012 and this doctor showed more care and concern than any doctor in the 14 years I been in USA. She is the BEST doctor.

Dr Kretchman is a very caring and loving Doctor

Check in at the office needs to be better. If check in person on left side note that on window.

Jan 31, 2024

Was glad to see DR. KRETCHMAN rather than an NP.

Jan 30, 2024

I not like this provider. She does not know my history. She makes me bristle and in turn she is defensive. Today was not a good experience.

Jan 30, 2024

Everyone was very polite and respectful

Jan 30, 2024

It was great!

Jan 29, 2024

I have every bit of faith in Dr. Kretchman. She is always concerned about my heath and very caring. She is one of the best doctors here. And all of her staff has always been very nice and helpful

Jan 25, 2024

She explained everything to me and then asked if I had any questions it is nice to be included and thought of there isn't very many drs out there today that actually care but she does I love going there

Jan 25, 2024

I highly recommend this place. The nurses and doctor was great to talk too.

Jan 25, 2024

Dr. Kretchman is great and allows me to feel that she truly cares about what I say.

Jan 24, 2024

Wonderful team - everyone was so kind and helpful! I felt very comfortable and supported.

Jan 24, 2024

Visit was running a little late..that went ok..after leaving and later in evening..i got on my chartand was reading notes..with 3 layers of clothes i was "obese". Never been told that before, but it wasnt said to me but written in my chart. With hypoactive thyroid and meds perscribed are not working with my system..and telling her Im always tired/ drained. Ill definately have to push harder to get this obese fat off..

Jan 24, 2024

This was just my first visit. It takes a couple of visits usually to establish a relationship that is more satisfactory than the initial meeting.

Jan 24, 2024

Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable.

Jan 24, 2024

She was very polite. Made eye contact when explaining my treatment. Made me feel comfortable with the treatment I was getting.

W O N D E R F U L !

Jan 15, 2024

Dr. Krethman, Shelby, and the entire staff is top notch, 1st rate. One cannot hope to receive better care along with compassion for their patients anywhere else! They are true gems of humanity... Thank you all for what you do for people, as well as how you do it. Hopefully you get many notes of sincere appreciation from all your patients on a daily basis - God knows you deserve it. xxx

Jan 11, 2024

Very nice office and workers

Jan 9, 2024

Dr K is awesome

Jan 9, 2024

Dr Kretchman was very helpful and kind

Jan 8, 2024

Dr. Erica Kretchman, Dena (Care Provider) & Holly (Front Desk) were all Professioal but showed Compassion and made me feel very comfortable & security with their knowledge and caring personalities. I'm glad that my sister & niece encouraged me to Reid Endocrinology Center where they are patients.

Jan 4, 2024

Everyone is very friendly! Tracy Dingwerth went above and beyond in helping us! She is definitely an asset!

Jan 4, 2024

I love Reid ENDO. I just wish it was closer to myj home in Brookville in

Jan 3, 2024

Everyone was very nice made my biopsy much easier!!

Jan 2, 2024

She was very attentive to what I said and my concerns.

Jan 2, 2024

Parting ways with this doctor. Unwilling to listen to other views or medical studies and thinks she knows everything, does not want her knowledge questioned. Was unknowledgeable about male testosterone. Initially made me get a MRI because she thought I had a pituitary tumor since my levels were so low, 90's. That was unfounded. Then started such low dose treatment that my levels mostly remained in the 90's. Now wants to stop treatment and refer me to a hematologist because my red blood cell count is high, but records show it has historically been high for years, nothing new. She is adamant that testosterone definitely causes polycythemia but there are medical studies showing it does NOT and data has been inconclusive. Dr. Kretchman remains very rigid, unwilling to see or hear other views. Not easy to work with.

Dec 20, 2023

Dr Kretchman was wonderful with our daughter and alleviating fear she had prior to the appt. She explained everything in detail and made sure she understood and answered all her questions. She left feeling much better than when she went in. Even her nurse Dena was absolutely fabulous explaining everything before discussing it. I would recommend this office to anyone in need of an endocrinologist. Excellence from beginning to end.

Dec 14, 2023

Dr. Erica Kretchman is an Endocrinology expert! Her wisdom and knowledge far surpass that of every other endocrinologist I've had before in other offices and cities. Her experience is invaluable because she doesn't just KNOW about diabetes, she LIVES it personally and can relate to other diabetics in a way that a non-diabetic doctor ever could. I'm thankful for her, and I thank you for having her at your hospital.

Dec 13, 2023

She gave me time and encouragement, which I really appreciated.

Dec 12, 2023

She is a lovely lady and all of her office staff are very nice and efficient!

Dec 12, 2023

Always very concerned and Thorough. Knows me knows my concerns.

Dec 12, 2023

Dr Kretchman was extremely through and listened to my questions and answered them. I appreciate her expertise.

Dec 11, 2023

Dr. Kretchman is wonderful.

Dec 7, 2023

Dr Kretchman and the rest of the team are great! They listen. They care. They inspire you to lower that A1C!

Dec 7, 2023

Dr. Kretchman's always the best. Our Community is very lucky to have her, and my wife and I both respect her and her Team.

Dec 6, 2023

The staff at this office is always very friendly and ready to help with any question i have.

Nov 30, 2023

Dr. Kretchman was very profesionel. No humor no personality whatsoever.Like talking to a robot. Needs to loosen up a bit.

Nov 30, 2023

Dr. KRETCHMAN IS THE BEST! MATTHEW WAS VERY KIND AND EFFICIENT.

Nov 28, 2023

I had hoped for a little more time to address issues. My doctor was very busy and it made me feel rushed. She headed for the door before I could finish asking questions

Nov 28, 2023

She was friendly and she answered all of my concerns.

Nov 27, 2023

Was pleasant and informative.

Nov 21, 2023

They changed my life around

Nov 21, 2023

Group experience is very helpful. Sharing information is wonderful. Dr. Is very knowledgeable because she is living with it too.

Nov 20, 2023

Everyone at Reid has been very helpful and kind to me.

Nov 16, 2023

Very pleasant to talk with Dr Kretchman and her team. I was very impressed by how they treated me and listened to my questions.

Nov 15, 2023

She was professional and extremely caring and kind. The reason I answered no on the only question was it did not apply to me and my issue.

Nov 15, 2023

They are always professional and attentive. Great people thank you

Nov 15, 2023

Doctor kretchman really knows what she's talking about. She is always super kind and really knows what I need.

Nov 14, 2023

I've known Dr Kretchman for a few years now and she has been extraordinary in my on going treatment/ journey. I would recommend her & her staff above any other.

Nov 14, 2023

She is too much of a dictator , expecting me to Follow orders without questioning or thinking for myself. She did not seem to listen or care about my reasons for doing things differently or that I have had osteoporosis since I was 50 and have had a half dozen falls and have NEVER broken a bone. She did not ask about my diet or exercise or why I felt it was important for me to take some iodine.

Nov 9, 2023

This office is a great asset to Reid and the diabetes event last night was tops!

Nov 7, 2023

I WAS great power was out and my doctor could still find all my info on her phone so I felt she was totally prepared Dr Kretchman was wonderful thank you for my care

Nov 6, 2023

It was my first time seeing Dr. Kretchman. She was very nice and took her time to explain what was going on with me.

Nov 2, 2023

If I have any questions, I always have an answer before I leave.

Nov 1, 2023

Dr Kretchman was very well educated and went over my entire history and what I need to do to get my sugar and overall health improved. I was extremely impressed by her caring and explaining my health condition and made me feel at ease. She is very polite and really cares about her patients. 10 stars

Oct 31, 2023

I feel very comfortable talking to the care providers in this office.

Oct 30, 2023

The Male MA was very efficient. Sorry I don't have his name. LOVE DR KRETCHMAN!

Oct 19, 2023

It is always a nice experience going here.

Oct 18, 2023

Dr. Kretchman is such a kind and caring physician who makes a positive impact on her patients' lives. I feel so fortunate to have her as my doctor.

Oct 18, 2023

Thank you!

Oct 17, 2023

Dr Kretchman and her staff are absolutely wonderful! I'm lucky to be one of their patients! All of her patients that I've talked with feel the same way.

Oct 16, 2023

Dr. Kretchman is amazing!

Oct 16, 2023

I've been seeing Dr. Kretchman for more than 2 years if not longer and I've always been treated with respect and she and her staff listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I also like the option of going to the Winchester office too. The Winchester Community and surrounding areas needed a closer place to go to see specialists. It's nice to have doctors who know what they are talking about and are able to help as well as actually listen to what I have to say. All I can say is keep up the good work.

Oct 11, 2023

Great trust in my Dr.

Oct 11, 2023

The Dr. had a condescending disinterested tone, made big speech about wanting to unload drugs and devices on me, and, when I tried to voice concerns about the drug she wanted to prescribe, since Mom has issues with it and I might too, she steamrolled me. Made me feel like I had no say in my medical care and, quite reasonably, peed me off.

Oct 11, 2023

Dr Kretchman and staff are always the best!

Oct 10, 2023

Dr. Kretchman is absolutely the best physician. She goes out of her way to help and will always respond if I need help. I would very highly recommend her to anyone needing endocrinology.

Sep 28, 2023

Very nice,easy to talk too.

Sep 28, 2023

I was very thankful......everyone was very kind and helpful!

Sep 25, 2023

The doctor has helped me greatly

Sep 21, 2023

Timely & Professional

Sep 21, 2023

Excellent appointment! Dr was very thorough with me and very much enjoyed talking to her. She was very attentive and I could tell immediately she knew her stuff. Again excellent appointment as I always have at Reid Health.

Sep 14, 2023

Loved Dr. Kretchman.

Sep 13, 2023

Dr. Kretchman took her time and explained everything in detail, in words I could understand. She answered every question I had for her and made me feel very comfortable and reassured. She was one of the most kind and caring doctors I have ever seen. Nurse Dena did a great job of putting my mind at ease. It was overall a great experience!

Sep 12, 2023

I love Dr Kretchman. She is friendly, warm, caring and I feel at home with her.

Sep 7, 2023

LPN Dena was absolutely wonderful. Best I have had in any doctor's office

Sep 7, 2023

Aug 28, 2023

Outstanding this appointment and every time

Aug 28, 2023

Personable, thorough

Aug 23, 2023

The people there are very friendly and they treat you like family.

Aug 21, 2023

Very Professional!

Aug 15, 2023

Very courteous and helpful

Aug 14, 2023

I wish the Dr's could do some of the blood and urine tests in office instead of going to the lab where you wait forever

Aug 14, 2023

In my years of experience visiting this office I am more disappointed with each appointment. I do my best to research my own condition of type 1 diabetes to empower myself because the providers have fallen short in providing the necessary treatment and passion needed to be on board for me advocating for a disease I despise. I have had to push the providers to follow through with actions and initiate questions that they should be asking me in regards to my health. I believe this office is entirely overrun with too many patients and this could be one reason for the inefficiency and important things are missed in my case. All feedback is important and while a majority of my response is negative it is important I introduce some positive. There are several fantastic employees who have been very helpful during my interactions with this office including the phone nurse, Jason, Dina (Dr. Kretchman's nurse), and Annie Duke's nurse (I cannot recall her name).

Aug 14, 2023

Great

Aug 11, 2023

I really enjoyed the appointment. I was at ease with the Doctor and her nurse. My anxiety level immediately decreased and I came out of that visit more knowledgeable about my diabetes and what my next steps were

Jul 27, 2023

It was great, as always.

Jul 26, 2023

Dr. Kretchman is a wonderful knowledgeable doctor. She continues to guide me to be much healthier.

Jul 24, 2023

Very nice experience

Jul 24, 2023

Erica Kretchman is one of my fave drs. She always takes her time with me & listens to what I have to say. I come all the way from Indy to see her because i trust her and have history with her.

Jul 24, 2023

The doctor and intern listened and were compassionate.

Jul 20, 2023

Everyone is so friendly and caring!

Jul 19, 2023
