The Worst I have ever met!

HIPPA violations galore! No washing of hands, showed me the list of patients, and the exam was a joke!

Bad, bad, baaaaad!

His exam was a JOKE! He provided no resistance when checking my limbs and didn't check my neck for spasms or anything! In fact, he was so busy looking over my medical records that I almost walked out. After waiting over an hour, his secretary complaining about their schedule, I felt unheard! This guy should stop practicing, must have alimony to pay!

One Star

I hope he treats his civilian patients with better care and more thorough examinations and accurate diagnosis than he does veterans. Veterans suffer enough pain without being denied appropriate care.

Five Stars

Dr. Ritter took great care of me when I broke my ankle, and his fees are reasonable. It was easy to be fit in any time I needed an appointment. His assistant Carol is very welcoming.

Two Stars

Extremely poor bedside manner. I had to ask, practically plead, for the proper diagnosis and treatment. He offered me only crutches & rehab instead of taking a look at my X-rays & assessing the injury to my knee. In fact, I had to insist that X-rays be taken. Dr. Ritter gave me the impression that since I was seen at the VA hospital, I was not worth his time or concern. I have never before had such a negative experience with a physician.
