I asked and was given the cash price for a routine screening colonoscopy. I was then charged $141 more than quoted. My office bill was paid in full as a cash payment and I am still receiving bills for not paid in full. As far as Dr Ringer himself.... he was 35 minutes late to my colonoscopy and I was his first procedure of the day. The nurses knew that he never started at 0700 but always at 0715. However he didn't arrive until 0735. He was rude and disrespectful to the nurse assisting. He billed

I initially went to Dr. Elsakra but he never met with me or answered my questions. Dr. Ringer was wonderful--he has a dry sense of humor which I didn't expect but was refreshing. More important, he listened to me and answered every single one of my questions. (I had many since it was my 1st colonoscopy.) Unlike others, he was familiar with the low-residue diet and okay with it. The actual procedure went smoothly as well--hospital staff said he is "the best there is" and I agree!

I like that Dr. Ringer is to the point, and takes care of my medical needs. His nurse is amazing, and helpful! I would recommend Dr. Ringer. I've been going to him for 16 years.

Dr. Ringer has been my doctor for many years and I'm still here so he must me doing a great job. I've been very happy with Dr. Ringer.
Modesto, CA |
Dr Ringer is very knowledgeable, and explained procedure to my satisfaction. My sole complaint is that after the procedure he did not tell me the results even though weeks have gone by. His staff is difficult to reach to schedule appointments for procedures, but when they do call (weeks later) they are friendly, kind and compassionate.

Dr. Ringer Is a busy doctor, so he spends just enough time, to go over results of tests, and ask what symptoms are. In my case, he said if it doesn't get better in a couple of months, to come in again.
Turlock, CA |
Professional courteous, explains things in lay language for non medical person to understand and is funny too.
in Riverbank |
I had my first appointment with Dr. Ringer today. He was very attentive, answered all my questions, did not hurry me through, and made me feel very confident in his knowledge and professionalism. I trust him.

Does not spend time with patient or family. Patient had problems after procedure. Does not communicate well,
