I was not pleased with this doctor at all. I need an emergency procedure done according to ER doc he made me wait almost 13 hours before finally performing the procedure. Where I then ended up in a hospital in another city for 2 weeks because of damage done to my esauphagus.

Dr. Ribner was completely dismissive regarding my daughter's ear problem. He spent less than two minutes examining her before he stated that she had no wax and no other problems, despite the pain and loss of hearing she was experiencing. I would NOT recommend Dr. Ribner.
