Patient Comments (2)

I recently had a major surgery (actually it ended up being a few in one) done by Dr Ritter & Dr Lima assisting. I have NF1 a deforming tumor on my face. I am so grateful for what they did for me. This makes my third operation, but nothing has come close to being this successful, I'm already pleased...more
