      I wouldn't recommend this guy to my worst enemy. Worst Doctor I've ever dealt with. Rushed me out, didn't even pull up my chart or screenings, gave me a prescription for 20 pills that needs to be taken three times a day. Texting while in the room with me right in front of me. Totally rushed out and will never go back and I hope people don't have to go through what I did. Oh and he didn't even know he just did a procedure on me last month.

      Never helped me with my abdominal pain. Never did stool tests and found out I had a nasty bacteria in my gut. Even though I was extremely weak, had chills, diarrhea and constant abdominal pain, he blew me off and gave me NOTHING. Wouldn't even sit down and answer my questions. Worst doctor ever I've seen.

      PA did consultation for colonoscopy. For procedure Dr Ringel never introduced himself. The surgery center felt like an assembly line and I would have appreciated an introduction instead of a wave, leaving me wondering if he was the doctor. Did not explain what he found and why he was not able to retain a polyp, got this info from nurse. Asked nurse to find out what info meant on papers I received and Dr Ringel came back with very brief explanation and walked off, very impersonal.
