    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 for all us is about 1hr 40min and well worth it! His knowledge of various health issues surpass the doctors within his field. The staff are friendly and efficient. Overall very happy...
