Excellent and Professional Care

From my initial office visit to the actual day of surgery, Dr. Ringold was nothing but courteous, kind, and extremely professional. He took the time to discuss the entire surgical procedure (cholecystectomy) thoroughly and answered all my questions. He did not rush in any way and truly made me feel like he genuinely cared, even with my other personal health issues that could possibly contribute. I would highly recommend him. Thank you for such great care !!!
