If you are overweight this is not the Dr. you should go see! When he fat shames you more in his notes than the problem you went to see him for, that is very sad. I wrote him a letter, talked to staff several times about amending his written report, due to the fat shaming, they refused and never got back to me.

Doctor Ryder acknowledged I had a positive culture yet refused to treat it with the needed antibiotics. I have had sinus issues since age 6. My last ENT treated me for 14 years and treated 3 generations of my family. I had to call him over 2000 miles away to get treated.
