Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

NO I WOULD NOT! The lack of professionalism of this man resigning his practice with no prior notice to his patients AFTER scheduling their surgeries (knowing they would be cancelled) should be a stain on his conscience and his public record. Be very wary in trusting anything this man says to you. Mr Ritter I wish you an extra helping of inconvenience in all your affairs for the chaos you left in your wake. You're an inconsiderate IDIOT.

You can't choose a better surgeon. His manner is very kind. He shows true concern for his patients. All the team and office workers are great. I especially like his assistant Elise. You couldn't be in better hands.

No way should this man be performing constructive surgery. I had rhinoplasty done to correct an injury and now there is not a day that goes by that I don't look in the mirror and regret ever letting Dr Ritter touch me. This man is uncaring and refused to offer any help with revisions. He has lied from the first day I met him. Be careful trusting this man...

Dr. Ritter did plastic surgery on my leg in 2014 and I am very pleased with his work. He was attentive and thorough and now my daughter needs to have plastic surgery done and Dr. Ritter is the one we will be going to. I would recommend him to my family and friends anytime.

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 with the results, and my face hasn't fully healed yet. The interns, nursing staff, & administration staff are extremely courteous and very helpful, & Dr Lima is amazing, see her page for her review.
