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.
