The Oak Creek, Wisconsin office of Reckner raised funds for a group of students at Oak Creek High School in December. Ange Tingwald, Facility Manager, organized the drive, which provided 22 students with gifts and gift cards. Additionally, the Reckner team put together stockings for each of the students stuffed with candy, gum, fuzzy socks for the young ladies, and cologne for the young men.
In the Chalfont, Pennsylvania office, Senior Project Manager Anna Cunningham organized our annual Holiday sharing program. The Reckner team purchased gifts and contributed funds to buy gift cards for a local family: a local single mom and her four children. Anna was thrilled with how generous the Reckner staff was and said, ”With everyone’s help, we were able to get every gift on their list including winter coats for all four kids.”
For those of you on the Healthcare Panel who have interacted with our survey recruiters, you will likely have spoken to Evelyn Morawski, who retired in December after 24 years of service. The staff gathered on December 11 to surprise Evelyn with a luncheon and cake. We wish her well in her well-deserved retirement.
If you follow Reckner Healthcare on social media you have probably seen posts about multiple staff members celebrating double-digit anniversaries. Perhaps this is the result of being a family-owned and operated business for the past 30 years, or at the very least, a testament to a positive work environment and committed employees!
You’ve taken the step to register for the Healthcare Panel. Now what?
On our end, it takes us a
bit of time to verify registrations, but once that’s complete, you’ll enter the
pool for studies that are a match with your expertise and experience. We
conduct both online surveys, telephone interviews, and in-person interviews.
On your end, be sure you
have whitelisted email@example.com since that is the email address we use to
send study invitations. For some studies we may also call you. If you have any
changes to your email, phone number, or address, please send that along to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re new to
research, another thing to note is that each study will start with a series of
questions called a screener. These vary in length, but are designed to ensure
that the study’s research objectives are met and that the participants meet the
requirements of the research. Not qualifying for any study in no way reflects
upon you or your professionalism.
If at any time you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com. We take your participation with us seriously and want to be sure we continue to treat you with the utmost respect and regard.

We continue our series of profiles of Reckner Healthcare Panel members with Dr. Michael Rotkowitz. He shared his thoughts about practicing medicine, music, and the benefits of participating in healthcare market research.
Dr. Michael I. Rotkowitz is a Board Certified Hematologist and Medical Oncologist who just began a new position at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, Jefferson Health in Washington Township, N.J. This appointment follows positions at Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Comprehensive Cancer and Hematology Specialists, P.C.
On a personal note…
Dr. Rotkowitz has a strong connection to his patients through his personal experience; he lost his mother to cancer and his father, who subsequently passed, was a cancer survivor. “My ability to relieve suffering and optimize outcomes is incredibly important to me in adding days to patients’ lives, but more so, life to patients’ days,” he shared.
Dr. Rotkowitz enriches his own life through music, to which
he draws a deep connection with medicine. “Music and medicine have many
overlapping principles and both are instruments of healing to the mind, body,
and spirit,” he said.
“In both the appreciation of music and in my love for
medicine, listening remains my most important strength. My passion for both
will involve a lifetime of education, inspiration, improvisation, and
practice. Both medicine and music possess the power to heal and the
ability to relieve pain. They both celebrate the harmonies of existence. As
music provides the soundtrack of all human life, medicine remains the
foundation that sustains it,” he continued.
On healthcare market
“Being a community hematologist and medical oncologist is difficult because you have to stay on the pulse of all updates and innovation in an ever evolving complex and diverse field of malignant hematology and medical oncology,” he said. “Taking part in healthcare and market research studies allows you to stay on the pulse of future updates and clinical data while also allowing you the opportunity for your ideas and insights to be heard,” he added.
Dr. Rotkowitz acknowledges that while the ability to earn accessory income and be compensated for one’s time and ideas is meaningful, he also believes that market research is quite engaging and allows one’s thoughts, concerns, and interests to be welcomed and appreciated. In his words, participating in market research offers “a voice and/or therapy to stress your concerns and share how you truly feel about issues related to the field. I feel rewarded to be able to be proactive in expressing ideas and thoughts that may implement some real positive change.”
Dr. Rotkowitz is particularly complimentary about working with Reckner Healthcare Surveys. “Reckner studies are always incredibly engaging, rewarding and allow me to be truthful in expressing concerns, thoughts, and feelings about a diversity of topics and products in the marketplace. I like the personal touch that Reckner provides as they have dedicated employees for particular studies and they are very meticulous about scheduling and following up,” he said.
“I feel assured that the
enrolling and execution of these surveys will be incredibly efficient and allow
me to plan my schedule accordingly. I also greatly appreciate the
diversity of topics within the field of hematology and oncology that are
available through Reckner,” he concluded.
Speaking on behalf of the
Reckner Healthcare team, Vice President Jason Gamber said, “All of us at
Reckner would like to congratulate Dr. Rotkowitz on his new position at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center,
Jefferson Health. We have appreciated his input over the past years and look
forward to his ongoing participation as a member of our trusted Healthcare
