What People Say About Dr. Steven Rittenberg, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Rittenberg, I have just been informed, in a surprise notification, that you are not refilling my prescriptions until you get cardiac clearance. I find it extremely unprofessional that you would surprise me with this, especially after you did an EKG in your office and found nothing wrong with my heart. Had you informed me at that you were not going to issue any more refills for medications affecting my heart, I would have made certain to have gotten the appointment done. However, at our last appointment, even you conveyed to me that this would be just a good thing to do...nothing super critical, just so I'd know one way or the other. I have scheduled several appointments with Evergreen cardiology since August, but for work reasons could not make the appointments. Even more disturbing than your surprise refusal to refill my medications, is that even the cardiologist said I was coming in for only a consultation, not even testing. TERRIBLE

When I graduated college almost 20 years ago, Steve was my first primary care physician. In this time of health insurance nightmares, I really have appreciated still having my doctor I can goto on this journey of life.

I'd give Dr. Rittenberg 10 stars! I've seen him 4-5 times in the past 2 months and he is consistently kind, helpful, and always in a great upbeat mood. He never rushed me through my questions or the visit, and I could tell that he sincerely cared about me as his patient and my condition. His staff also told me that he's a joy to work with, and a great boss. I also liked his office staff and nurses. No complaints! Dr. Rittenberg and his team are pretty darn awesome!
