Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ritchie "When asked why he chose his specialty, Dr. Ritchie simply says,"I just love working with kids...I try to treat all the kids the way I'd treat my own."  Patient care is of the utmost importance, and Dr. Ritchie embodies that by saying: "I don't have PAs or nurse practitioners...When a patient makes an appointment, they just see me. The diagnosis and treatment are made by me. I take a lot of time making sure parents understand and are comfortable with each diagnosis and treatment.""

Everyone was fantastic with the exception of the lady who settled us up at the end. Not friendly. No eye contact. Dr. Ritchie was personable and kind to my daughter. Explained diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Great service.
