Have you seen Dr. Allison Ring?
October 5th, 2017She is a nightmare
The worst doctor I've ever come in contact with. She treated me as just another young woman on state insurance and made my questions and concerns seem as if I just didn't know what I was talking about. My last appointment with her at 5 and half months pregnant is where she told me that I needed to stop over reacting and that maybe it's because I was overweight at 19 years old weighing 185lbs, without even giving me a thorough checkup. I honestly couldn't even tell you what my appointment was for because she didn't react to any of my concerns of shooting pains up and down my stomach, she listened to his heart beat and then I was pushed out of the door within ten minutes. Two days later, my pains that I was "over reacting" about were in fact contractions and I was 6cm dilated, which caused me to have a stillbirth. When I went to a different hospital, my new doctor called her to inform her on what was going on and she told my new doctor that she would just send me home until I'm ready to deliver so it's up to me who I wanted to be treated by, with blood pouring out of me I chose to stay with Dr. Mauricio Tobar (he's amazing). She never once called me, even after the birth of my child. I never heard from her again. I will never forget you Dr. Ring. You are a first mother's worst nightmare as an obgyn and I can only hope that you've learned your lesson in the last 3 years. I'm not sorry for saying the truth about Dr. Ring, I'm only sorry I didn't speak up sooner. Maybe this review can somehow help another 19 year old lady out there who had nothing but lost everything.

July 27th, 2015great surgeon
Really great at considering the FATHER'S opinion throughout birth process. Not very informal on alternative options to help heal the body. She is direct and respected by her colleagues however very pushy towards c sections and not encouraging for vaginal births. Delivered two children of mine via c section the scaring healed pretty well however I was told tht I could rip stiches if I vaginally delivered my second born which is possible but a very low risk as to which I didn't learn until after the birth of my second child.
May 9th, 2015not satisfied
I saw Dr. Ring for my first pregnancy. She was ok overall, but first time she followed an approach reg medication that was not convincing to me. The other time she didn't warn us enough about possible situation we could get into. Also She didn't provide any suggestion for pain I went through couple times during pregnancy. Overall my satisfaction with her is average.

September 24th, 2014Not the best
I started to see Dr.Ring in January. We decided on an IUD for my method of birth control. She had to take it out months later then put me on hormonal birth control that was horrible for me. This doctor doesn't care about your feelings and just comes in and gets her job done and leaves. I have had better doctors at planned parenthood. In fact,I got the IUD back in at planned parenthood,while not on my period which Dr Ring said I must be on to have the IUD placed, and the doctor at planned parenthood did an amazing job! He took time to listen to my concerns and I was able to get an appointment fast. Don't go to Dr.Ring if you want an apointment within the week. Might take a few months even if you have a serious issue.
August 20th, 2012Dr. Ring is a great doctor!
I have been going to Dr. Ring for 3 years and she is the best OB/GYN I have seen. She was my doctor throughout my first pregnancy and was there (at 4:00am) for the birth of my daughter when she had just gotten back from vacation the day before. Many OB's do not attend deliveries at that hour, and would just let the on-call doctor handle it. She was caring, and so awesome during my pregnancy and delivery. I had an unmedicated birth and Dr. Ring was very supportive and helped me throughout the birth. It was an amazing experience, and she made me feel very relaxed, not scared or stressed at all. I saw her recently for a minor surgical procedure and I had some chest pain later that day which I called Dr. Ring about. She called me the next day to check on me and make sure I was ok. She is very matter of fact, not the warm and fuzzy type, but she is a great doctor, which is the most important thing to me. I appreciate her matter of fact approach, and I feel like she gives you the time you need to get all your questions answered.
July 16th, 2012Professional, caring, and fantastic doctor. Love her!
Dr Ring is my ob and delivered both of my children. Both of my children were born at night. And both times she was there to check up on me throughout the day. She was there when it was time for delivery and both deliveries went as planned. I have to say that I always felt at ease when she was in the room. My husband and I both think that she is fantastic and would recommend her to everyone. She's delivered both of my children and if I have another she will certainly be my doctor.
September 24th, 2010Dr. is not concerned w/ Comfort of Patients, nor believes in anesthesia or Pain Medication!!! Run Now!
I saw Dr. Ring for the Mirena IUD. I was told that the prcedure to insert the IUD was just a "little more" uncomfortable than having a Pap smear. This was a complete and utter lie. This procedure was the most painful experience I have ever had. To make matters worse, I asked if I could have a local anesthetic or a Twilight med for the procedure & was told no. And it took Dr. Ring 3 times before she was able to get the IUD inserted past my Cervix. When I screamed out in pain during the proceedure she paused only for a moment & continued on. After it was finally in, I was in so much pain I nearly passed out and told Dr. Ring this. Her response was I will get you some water. I asked for pain meds, was denied. She offered Ibuprophen, but guess what, They didn't have any. I laid in that exam roon for 30 minutes after the procedure before I made my way to the bathroom where I proceeded to vomit. At no point did ANYONE, including Dr. Ring herself, come to check in on me. She is sweet on the outside, evil on the inside. Cancel your appointment NOW
