Dr. Rittenhouse is very straightforward, tells you just how it is, but in a way that you understand what he is talking about. Makes you feel like your his only patient( no rushing you in or out like your a piece of cattle). Highly recommend.

I highly recommend Dr. Rittenhouse especially if you are like me; one who has the non common or rare health aliments. A coworker referred him due to her struggles with conceiving, which she was referred by another coworker. Right there alone shows the high level of recommendation. Driving eta time...more
