Patient Comments (9)

It has been about two years since my deviated septum was fixed by Dr. Ribner. It really has changed my life. I no longer need a sleep apnea breathing machine to get a good night's sleep. I had panic attacks in the middle of the night because my body was not getting enough oxygen. I would wake...more

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.

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,...more

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...more
