Dr. Ringus rebuild all the tendons in my ankle and it was the best thing I have ever done. Improved my life tremendously. Has done some minor knee cleaning out and handled a few stress fractures in my foot also.

Even though he was 45 minutes from OKC I made an apt with Dr. Ringus because it was important for me to have my initial apt with an orthopedic surgeon who specialized in feet as I thought I might need surgery. When I arrived he was across the hall from the examination room and sent in his PA to see me rather than coming himself. The PA spoke with him about me and possible treatment but I never saw Dr. Ringus. What is upsetting is that the PA is NOT in my network and so I was billed for an out

After 4 other surgeons I was blessed that Dr Ringus took on my foot and ankle. There was so much damage, scar tissue, broken hardware and pre existing nerve damage I didn't think anyone could fix it. He removed hardware, refused a joint cleaned my ankle and pretty much redid all my ligaments and tendons. It made a huge difference. I wish I would have had him from the start!!!!

1. Never actually touched my fractured finger or hand. 2. Never explained my condition (I was even confused as to which bone I had in fact fractured in my finger). 3. Did not adequately explain my prognosis or address any of my concerns. 4. Spent fewer than 10 minutes in my exam room over two visits (I timed them). 5. Waited anywhere from fifty minutes to two hours late from my scheduled appointment time with either Dr. Ringus or his physicians assistant. Worst doctor I've had. Don't go see him.

I adore Dr Ringus, he has been the best foot surgeon. He explained everything he was going to do to my feet during surgery. Answered all my questions. Absolutely the best. Will see him anytime I need any type of foot surgery.

After injuring both ankles, Dr. Ringus repaired them with surgery. Very professional staff but very personable at the same time. I deal with many federal workers compensation injuries. I will always refer my family, friends and co-workers to Dr. Ringus as well as any of the doctors working with him that specialize within their areas. Very, very impressed with them all.

The Dr (Ringus) is great!!! The problem is getting thru their office staff who must have had "Bank Account is MOST important over any health issues with patients" burned into their souls. I'm suffering from a post-op severe infection but I'd rather deal with this on my own then dealing with souls office staff (West side Office).
