I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy last week. It was a painless procedure and I was very happy with Dr. Ritter. He spoke to me before and after the procedure and I am very confident in his ability. He will be performing my gastric sleeve procedure in a few months.

I was sent to Dr. David Ritter by my family doctor. He performed a double inguinal hernia repair. The surgery went quickly and the recovery has been quicker and more comfortable than I expected. I am not a doctor but I cannot imagine another doctor doing a more perfect repair that Dr Ritter. I highly without reservation recommend Dr. David Ritter for your Hernia Surgery.

I have gone to Dr. Ritter for the last 8 years. He explains what ever procedure you are having so you understand what will be done. my last procedure I had done was in June of this year. I was pretty messed u and I had two surgeons turn me down. While I was in recovery my pastor came in to check on me. He said he had seen a lot of Drs. talk to the waiting famlys but he was really impressed with Dr, Ritter on how he presented himself. He answered all questions. And it hlps that he is surviror fan
