Dr. Ritchken is very thorough and competent - he has a very good bed-side manner. I will go to him for my next colonoscopy.

Very thorough and driven to be focused to get to teh bottom of the condition. I was in good health within weeks after my first visit on a friend's recommendation. Too bad - I cannot have him as my PCP.
