Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ringhoffer " Practicing for 31 years in Mobile, Alabama I have cared for women throughout the whole life cycle. We have grown together and shared the ripple effect we have on other people, some that we birth, some that we lose and some that we choose . Physical care has to fit the lady's social, work and emotional needs at the time.I try to help patients make informed plans for future health. Whether by birth control, family planning, delivering their children, surgery, menopause transition or care for the older women in their life we often learn from each other's experiences."

Patient Comments (10)

I would definately recommend Dr. Ringhoffer to my family and friends. I have also had both of my daughters see her. She is very intelligent and has a way of communicating with you that does not make you feel inferior because of your lack of medical knowledge. She takes time to explain situations...more

I wouldn't recommend her to anyone. She has always been rude and unhelpful to me. I have been treated like a 2nd class citizen in her office. It appears she is only after the money and no genuine interest is considered when treating you.

Since she never explained to me that I had symptoms of endometriosis, I never thought I needed the laparoscopy that she mentioned, that is, until I HAD to have one due to an emergency. When I awoke from it, I was told me that I needed a total hysterectomy because the endometriosis was so advanced....more
