What People Say About Dr. Sherwin Ritz, MD
Reply
I sought the services or Dr. Ritz in 2004 when he correctly diagnosed me with throat cancer (Squamous cell carcinoma). I received proper treatment from his recommendation and 15 years later I am still receiving cancer free reports. I highly recommend Dr. Ritz and his friendly staff. Dr. Ritz is additionally very personable and when the doctor heard of the sudden death of my 22 year old, he send a sizable condolence donation.
