Dr. Brian R Ringhofer has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Good experience

My visits with Dr. Ringhofer have been good. During the first visit, he asked me to describe the symptoms that had brought me to him and listened carefully. He was very patient in explaining the possible diagnoses, and also explained why he wanted to take a cautious approach to the treatment, based on a series of tests to better evaluate my condition. During the first and later visits, I felt that I could talk to him and get honest feedback. He never makes me feel rushed and is reassuring. When the results of a significant test came in, he called me personally. I am very happy with him and recommend him highly. I had to wait a little while in the office, but then I can't complain because he is good about spending time to answer my questions.
