I had a very good experience with Dr. Toby Ritterhoff and the Durham Women's Clinic. I needed an endometrial biopsy. She performed the procedure with the pippelle method, which is not as prone to cause pain. The subsequent DNC could not have gone smoother with Dr. Ritterhoff. She was professional and pleasant to deal with. I know other reviewers here had different experiences but mine went very well.

I have never been so traumatized by a doctor. I went to her because of pain and as she explained what she thought might be going on she said to me "I know, I would rather tell someone they had cancer". This is unacceptable and inappropriate. My mother had Uterine cancer and I was convinced whatever was wrong w me was worse. Turns out I just had a bacterial infection. She exhibited no empathy as I bawled my eyes out and seemed annoyed by my questions. I will NEVER recommend her.

I told her my current birth control was working well but she insisted that I go on the lower dose of ortho-tri-cyclen. I mentioned that my insurance didn't cover non-generic brands, she said o-t-c lo now had a generic brand (false). Obviously found out that my insurance wouldn't cover it. I called the office and she just sent over a new prescription without any instruction. This BC was progestin only and was very different from o-t-c, ended up pregnant. She majorly screwed up!!! Thanks, Toby.

I?ve been Dr. Toby Ritterhoff?s patient for several years and am totally satisfied with the care she has given me. I?ve also referred friends to her. She?s puts me at ease by being prompt, attentive, and patient . . . and I especially like that she is direct in her communications. I don?t have to guess what she?s thinking. She?s the proud mother of three college-aged daughters and lights up when she mentions them. I highly recommend her.

Very caring and clearly concerned about my wellbeing both in the context of the particular gynecological issue which I made the appointment about, and in the broader context of my overall health.

Very awkward to talk to, couldn't offer any suggestions to help with my condition except surgery, did not seem interested in talking about other options. Didn't offer up any new information or analysis of my condition.
