What People Say About Dr. Paul Ricketts, MD

There are few doctors practicing out there today that I feel truly fit the definition of a doctor. “Patch” Adams was about the last doctor to come down the medical school pike that was a real doctor. But now I can count Dr Ricketts as among them. His “bedside manner” is impeccable. His professionalism the same. AND I was shocked when I received a phone call from his office and it was him. No doctor does that any more. He’s the best. I trust him implicitly.
