Dr. Ritchie is professional with an excellent bedside manner. He is also very patient!!! He explained everything very well and took the time to answer all of my questions(even though I repeated them as I was in shock). He is the best!!!

When my 6-year-old son broke his arm, I was able to get in to see Dr. Ritchie right away. The office was super fun for the kids and Dr. Ritchie made my son feel comfortable and even had him laughing. I was not rushed through, but Dr. Ritchie took his time and answered all my questions in a way I could understand. He saw us at every follow-up visit and was really good with all my kids being there.

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.
