Where do I start? Dr Ring is a dream doctor! What every doctor should aspire to be! He listens, he really cares and just does everything in his power to let you sit back and heal and work on getting strong and back in shape because he has your back! I am so used to fighting for my care and worrying and belittled, he makes me feel like I am in first class and he is on top of everything! I didn’t think it existed any longer with patient care! I fought for my patients for 38 years and there were very few Doctors who really care! Dr Ring exceeds my expectations. He is so positive and always speaks in positive tone. He gives you courage and encouragement and it is just his personality so you don’t even know how much he truly cares about your care and how much he is doing without you having to bug him or fight for it. He just takes care of business! Best Doctor ever!!
