Dr. Christopher H Rittmeyer has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One Star

After seeing this doctor for almost a year, he never helped my sons situation. Very RUDE and unprofessional. I would reccomend any doctor over Dr. Rittmeyer. Still in shock of how he spoke to my family.

Our daughter has had severe stomach issues including pain and reflux for two years. We were rarely seen by Dr. Rittmeyer and only by nurses or practitioners. The diagnosis was always constipation. She was admitted to the hospital by his staff for a "cleansing" and never improved. We took her to the Children's Hospital in Jacksonville where two other GI's who consulted with a third GI, diagnosed her with a different condition and we finally got answers and she got relief. Rittmeyer works for the hospital and not for himself. He has no incentive to be efficient (thus the long waits) or to be competent as he gets paid not matter what. It is a terrible business and practice. Do not take your child to him as you will waste time, energy and money.

Great Doc. Rude Reception. Good Luck.

Dr. Rittmeyer is amazing, but his receptionist is rude. I called recently to schedule an appointment and she cut off every sentence I said with irrelevant information from her assumptions. That's too bad, since it makes doing business with this doctor almost impossible and he happens to be one of the best.

Liars and Cheaters!

If I could give 0 stars, I wouldn't hesitate! DO NOT GO TO THE CENTER FOR DIGESTIVE AND LIVER HEALTH AND ENDOSCOPY CENTER of Savannah, GA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will be tricked and lied to. ACTIVE DUTY, they do not comply with their Tricare contract and will charge you for services not covered. $450 to be exact! FYI active duty DO NOT have a copay!!!!! Do not pay any copay or deductible, it will be forever, if ever, before you will be reimbursed. They will turn on any Tricare representative that you may call (by being as rude and argumentative as possible) claiming that you signed a waiver and are therefore responsible for the bill! NOT TRUE!!!I If they lose their Tricare contract, they cannot serve anyone with Tricare insurance. they even told me that we are not special just because we have Tricare. They say that they treat Tricare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield equally. Tricare is not public, commercial insurance. How many poor saps have not questioned it and paid? DON'T give them your business! So outraged!!
