Dr. Ribeiro was very personable and informative. His staff is very curteous and helpful. I was able to move up my blood test appointment(didn't want to fast all day) with out any problems. First time in a while my blood was drawn without leaving a bruise from someone digging. Quick,one stick, and painless. Kevin was so very helpful in moving all my test up so I didn't have to return later. My visit seemed to move effortlessly from one test to the next like a well oiled machine. Kevin was great,

I recently visited the Dr. Ribeiro's Hope Arkansas Clinic for an appointment at 1:30 PM. I did not get in to see the Doctor until 3:30PM. The waiting room was extremely full. This is the second time I have waited an extremely long time in this clinic. This causes stress which is not good for a heart patient.

I would give Dr. Ribeiro the highest recommendation. I've been going to Dr. Ribeiro for at least 7 years. He & his team discovered a large Myxoma in my left Atrium & truly saved my life! He has a very upbeat and positive demeanor and is a great listener. I can't say enough good things about him!
