Dr Ritten does have hearing loss. Previous commenter should take that into account of perceived disinterest

Love love loved him!!!! Knowledgeable, smart, funny and super down to earth. Respectful and friendly to me, my husband, nurses and the housekeeping staff. My husband loved him and so did my mom - and that's hard to accomplish!!

Best physician I have ever been to. So nice, so friendly and made me feel he knows his medicine. I felt confident in him and he was raved about by the nurses during my surgery.

Either he is hard of hearing or just doesn't care. A very laid back doctor, but almost too laid back, to the point of not caring. Very forward. Just gave me the impression he didn't know what he was doing. Seemed to have almost no empathy for a pregnant woman before, during, and after delivery. I wish I had another doctor deliver my baby.
