    Great Doc! Would recommend to anyone.

    Not sure if he wants to be a doctor or comedian. Should have left after the long wait and later his bad jokes. When it comes to my health, I really don't think that is a laughing matter. I received poor communication and care from him and his staff. Do yourself a favor, find another renal specialist.

    Dr. Ringhofer is very good explaining possible diagnoses in terms that a lay person can understand. He is very thorough, running numerous non-invasive tests to get the most information, but reserving more invasive procedures until absolutely necessary. He listens to me and never makes me feel rushed. He called me personally to provide me with the results of a significant test. He is reassuring and I trust him.
