Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ringer "Coming to see a neurosurgeon can be intimidating and confusing, and understandably so. Neurological disorders can carry significant risk in some cases, but are often readily treatable as well. Because I have always believed that an informed patient is a healthy patient, I pride myself on providing all the important information, in an understandable way, to each of my patients and their loved ones. I am confident that once they really understand their condition and options, my patients will make healthy, safe choices. If this requires extra time for questions, or even an opportunity for a second opinion, I will always support my patients in that process. I am also committed to improving how we deliver medical care to patients and how we track patient safety and outcomes. This commitment is reflected in my work with colleagues at Mayfield and the Endovascular Neurosurgery Research Group. It is a collaboration that keeps me informed and educated as best practices continually evolve."

Could not have asked for a better surgeon. Compassionate care and took the time I needed to understand my options. I have recommended him to several people since and they have loved him too.
