I have visited Dr. Ritter's office several times. Each time, I have made an appointment with Dr. Ritter and when I arrived, their staff asked if I would see her NP Stacy instead, as she was running behind. Stacy over prescribed me for my diagnosis. She did not follow the CDC guidelines on the proper amount of days of antibiotic usage. In addition to the excess of antibiotics, she also prescribed me a gel that was not fully covered by my insurance.

The first time I saw her, she was fantastic, and the next time, after test results, she was snarky and dismissive. I got the impression that she didn't know what she was dealing with and it irritated her. I talked to a friend who has gone to Dr. Ritter for decades, and she said that she is a good doctor, but that what I experienced is not unusual, and she has been known to just wipe her schedule and walk out of the office, leaving patients with the need to reschedule.

I have been going to Dr. Ritter for over 20 years and have always felt that she cared about my health. When it was time for my daughters to get a GYN I took them to her because I trust her opinion. I have been through several surgeries with Dr. Ritter and she is also comforting and soothing, I feel well cared for when I am under her care. She is a great doctor and I would recommend her to my family and friends.

I have being seeing Dr Ritter for over 25 years. She is kind and patient with an excellent bedside manner. We have been through 3 very different childbirths , fibroids and cysts and she was always very thorough and informative. I have always felt that I was receiving the best care and that I was her only patient. Truly the best in her field.

I have been seeing Dr.Ritter for about 3 years now. First time was fine. The last two for my annual exams I felt very rushed through. Didn't really ask what had changed in the last year or do parts of the exam that were always done previously. Also I have found often that the font staff is pretty rude when you call and makes you feel like you are burdening them. I am finding a new gyn this year.

I had an appointment in October and the day before my appointment I received a call saying Dr. Ritter had to reschedule due to an emergency. She could only see me on Oct. 31 st which didn't work for me and so they couldn't get me in until Dec. 13. Today is December 12th and I get a call saying she has to reschedule again due to an emergency. Unbelievable that I have been trying to see her for over 2 months. Her time is not more important than mine. I won't waste my time.

I saw Dr. Ritter for the first time this month and she saved my life! My primary care doctor referred me to her and set the appointment up since I was bleeding. She even did my ultrasound in the office and had my biopsy rushed. Although the diagnosis was cancer, she and her staff walked me through the process quickly and coordinated my care. Her good friend, the head of gynecology cancer surgery, collaborated with her to quickly remove my cancer. Thank you for saving my life!

Dr.Ritter is wonderful! I have seen her for years and she truly cares about me as a patient and as a person. She makes me feel like I am part of her family and has been more than just my ob/Gyn. I am grateful to her, and her staff, for taking such good care of me.

Dr. Ritter was recommended to me. I went to have my annual appointment as well as talk about options in alternative ways to become pregnant. She was extremely rushed and told me she wasn't prepared to discuss those options even though I specifically told them when I made my appointment that I wanted to discuss those options. I have been to her in the past as well, and she was a bit rude in responses to questions I had then. I won't be returning to her nor referring her to anyone either.
