Had a closed nasal reduction to correct a broken nose, done by Dr. Ribner. He did a pretty great job, and took good care of me the whole time, and was attentive and responsive to my numerous questions and worries. It's been a couple years since surgery and my nose is hardly noticeably crooked, unless I point it out.

Dr. Ribner is a caring professional. He fixed the deviated septum in my nose and I have been able to breath better now than I did for 54 years prior . During his visits, he was kind, patient, and really took the time to listen to what was wrong and what my needs are. He has great bed side manor and is easy to speak to. He is very knowledgeable. He is also has a sense of humor. I would HIGHLY recommend him for any procedure involving a nose procedure.

Dr. Ribner is the best ENT/plastic surgeon out there. I suffered from a deviated septum and a bump from an old fracture, and haven't been able to breath very well for years. Dr Ribner's not only an artist at what he does, but he genuinely cares about his patients. Both him and his staff are so sweet and are always there to ensure that you have a speedy and comfortable recovery. I have a renewed quality of life ( I can BREATHE!) and am much more confident with my physical appearance.

Dr Ribner performed septoplasty and bilateral turbinate reduction surgery to correct longtime breathing difficulty. On each visit he was always professional, explained the procedure, and entertained any questions. The surgery was unbelievably pain-free and successful in correcting my breathing problem.

He helped me out through all my problems.

Dr. Ribner is the best ENT I have seen. He takes time to listen to his patients and he explains everything. I like that when he did PE tube in office he explained everything he was doing before he did it. Also I liked that he numbed my ear before making the incision and that he drained the ear infection before putting the PE tube into my ear. In addition, this was the first time I did not jump out of my skin getting them put in. Dr. Ribner puts his patients first.
in Albuquerque, NM |
He has forgotten what a Hippocratic Oath is and his staff is extremely rude to patients. He also is 1 hour late for all his appointments!
