Fenton, MO |
Arrived @ 10:45 for a 11:15 appointment, i finally went to the desk @ 12:00 and asked when will i be nextsince i had to go back to work. The receptionist said I was next, another lady went in front of me, 10 minutes later I was called. I said to the nurse as she apologizes my time is jusr as important as theirs. They act like they didnt even care. Then when the nurse started to ask questions , i said obviously you didn't read the papers i filled out. You decide, never going back.

I'm in the healthcare field so I judge Dr.'s a bit differently than most. I had a complete tear in my rotator cuff that an MRI didn't even pick up. Four and one half months after Dr. Ritchie repaired my rotator cuff I have 98% ROM with zero pain. I would recommend Dr. Ritchie to anyone. I have one word for Dr. Ritchie, his talents as a surgeon and his staff.....AMAZING!
