Review of Dr. First

-La Mesa, CA |

My dad was diagnosed with gall bladder cancer April 2017. By August 2017, dad couldn't keep food down and we were concerned so we took dad back to his regular physician Dr. First. He told dad he needed to drink more beer and eat anything he wanted and did NOT take this matter seriously. Three days later we took dad to ER. He left 8 days later going into home hospice and died 2 weeks later. Dr. First's office called after dad died to confirm an appt - not impressed with this office. Steer clear!

Dr. Ritchken is very thorough and competent - he has a very good bed-side manner. I will go to him for my next colonoscopy.

Very thorough and driven to be focused to get to teh bottom of the condition. I was in good health within weeks after my first visit on a friend's recommendation. Too bad - I cannot have him as my PCP.

New patient. First visit was very positive experience. He was very thorough, personable, and put my mind at ease that I may finally get some answers.

Review of Dr. First

- in Chula Vista, CA |

The Best Dr, and staff period. He cares about their patients and will go well beyond any other health care provider in the business today to help you even if they can't help you. They will point you in the right direction to get you the care that you need. They have zero problems working with other Doctors that you trust to get you the care that you need. The only problem is that when you visit another doctors office, your sort of disappointed that it's not Dr First's office.

Review of Dr. Ritchken

I called his office to make an appointment based on all the reviews, got voice mail, left a message. They left a message back. I returned the call, another voice mail. Over a day later I am still waiting to be called back. Oh, when I did not hear back by late afternoon, I called again this morning, another voice mail. He maybe a good doctor, If you can ever reach him.
