Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Ringel appears to be trying but is constantly 30 min to 2 hours past appointment times, so plan to spend some time. He blows into the exam room with no prior review of the patients history or even why they're there. His office staff is not the friendliest and I actually had one hang up on me when I was trying to get some information on preapproval for a procedure. "Dawn" accused me of trying to tell her how to do her job and constantly interrupted me. Looking to Change providers.

He prescribed my mother 2 xanax to take before she was supposed to have a lumbar puncture. She couldn't walk and slurred her speech. The nurses were rude and insinuated that she was a liar because he didn't remember prescribing the medication. They sent us home without checking her vitals or anything. My mother sat in a wheelchair doubled over asleep for most of the visit and once the xanax wore off she couldn't remember anything. The nurse was supposed to call and that was 4 days ago.

Didn't listen to my concerns; blew them off. He was in & out of the room & then sent the nurse in to talk to me instead of him. Took of meds for testing, then wouldn't prescribe anything to help OR even re-prescribe what I'd been on despite it working, being not controlled, safe, having had no side effects, and having taken it for years. My PCP knew more and he's the specialist. Expect a minimum of 2 hour wait time. Nurses were unbelievably rude and constantly interrupted my concerns. RUN AWAY
