Dr. Retterbush saved my dad's life. After previously working in the operating room for four years working with countless General surgeons I know how great of a Doctor this man is. Words can not express my gratitude for him and his attention to defail and care for his patients. He noticed things the family and not nurses hadn't and did not give up on my dad. He's a hero.

Dr. Retterbush doe so not take into consideration the patient's quality of life, all he cares about is getting you to return to the office over an over so he can milk you and your insurance company. We waited in the exam room for over an hour for him to come in. He has the opinion that he knows more than any other medical professional, and will not concider doing what they or the patient need or want. I would not take a dog I hated to this man. He had my mother in tears telling her to suck it up

Dr Retterbush and assistant was nice and friendly but the two ladies up front that checks you in and out is rude especially the lady with last name Moore she was very rude. It was uncalled for to talk to me and my daughter the way they did.
