Patient Comments (2)

Completely rude, stupid and unprofessional doctor. He told my family member that she was “done for”. He should not be practicing medicine. He’s old and out of touch. He needs to retire and spare any more patients from his “bedside manner”.

Dr. Rittenhouse is great! His secretary is even better! He explains so you understand. He is a bit over professional until you get acquainted, then his smile comes out and walks you through each step, literally. He is no nonsense and gets the job done quickly and professionally. Follow up is...more
