Dr. Rydberg solved my skin problem. My only negative situation is that I didn't see the doctor for forty minutes after my scheduled time. I realize that the doctor's time is valuable and some patients are rude and show up late or not at all. I am not one of those patients. I arrived thirty minutes before my scheduled 9:00 am appointment. therefore I waited an hour and 10 minutes for a fifteen minute appointment duration.

I thought Dr. Rydberg was warm, caring and interested in hearing my concerns. I feel like I could develop a good working relationship with him. However, the phone system is incredibly frustrating and time consuming when trying to schedule appointments or get assistance. It's a bummer!

Dr. Rydberg has served my wife and me for almost as long as he has been in practice. We are extremely blessed to have the professional care he offers and to the details of our health...physically and otherwise. He engages us in conversation beyond the scope of one or two questions and personalizes our visits. By some standards, he is that "old country doctor" many wish were still around. Thank you Doctor Rydberg.

Dr. Rydberg has been my primary care physician for more than ten years. He is a great doctor. I am fortunate to have VA medical coverage, as well as military, both are free of cost to me. I chose to keep my private health insurance and pay the premiums because I do not want to give up Dr. Rydberg as my PCP. He is great!

I have been seeing Dr. Rydberg for many years. He was also my husband's doctor. Although my husband is no longer with us, Dr. Rydberg helped us get through many medical situations. He was always there when we needed him with advice, support, and medical assistance. He is compassionate and caring, as well as very knowledgeable. My choice of insurance has been greatly influenced by my desire to continue seeing Dr. Rydberg.

Dr. Rydberg is the most personable, caring, and genuine doctor I have had. He listens, asks questions, and gives me and my family the right advice and tools to solve any issue related to our physical and mental health. He is an excellent doctor, which is why it is hard to get to see him for urgent appointments. As long as he practices medicine, he will be my family's primary care physician.

I've been going to Dr. Rydberg for 20 years. I find it very easy to have conversation with him, he addresses my concerns, and explains things thoroughly. In more recent years he has also provided (and continues to provide) helpful advice in caring for our toddler.
