Condescending, poor bedside manner. Scheduled a surgery that he couldn’t perform. Took time off work, rearrange schedule Only to find out a week before that the hospital is not set up for this particular surgery. How does he not know that?

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.
