Awesome....very,pleased with new knee
Decatur, TX |
Dr. Ribeiro is the best at what he does. He did both my mom and dads surgery, and they couldn't be happier. The staff is very kind and courteous and won't hesitate to help you! All good experiences at this office!
in Runaway Bay, TX |
The confidence he exudes is backed up by the experience he has. I have been seeing him for 15 years, and have never been disappointed by a visit to his office.
Decatur, Texas |
Poor outcomes and lack of response to patient concerns and safety issues. Do not use this doctor if you can avoid it.
Decatur, TX |
Dr Riberos is great. I've had several surgeries with him and he is very personable and through. he does move fast so you need to be prepared and make him answer any questions that you have. On the other hand his office staff is beyond terrible. its like dealing with a herd of sloths. They fail to return calls. There is also a 3% charge for creIit card transactions which is our silliness since the bigger risk is collecting bounced checks.
Underwhelming. Quick hurry up attitude. Not to my liking.
