It's my first time making an appointment with zocdoc. These part was easy and I'd recommend. This Dr appointment was the first one I've had where I feel I actually got answers to my questions and she took time with me.Usually I feel rushed during my appointments but not here. She knows what she's doing and explains everything in detail.

I needed a second opinion on my recently fractured foot. Dr Ribeiro suggested PT and other non surgical treatments before looking into surgery. She has a delightful manner,responds quickly to email and explained my other issues that I didn’tknow I had in a manner that was understandable. It’s truly the first time I’ve completely felt like a doctor was REALLY listening to my concerns. She’s great.... you won’t be sorry.

Doctor Ribeiro is really nice and professional and gave me great recommendations on how to care for my feet. However, the waiting time was really long. I sat alone in the examine room for about 20 minutes before the doctor camein (after the receptionist said "she will be here soon"). So wasn't so happy about that. But other than the waiting time, the actual service is excellent

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ribeiro. She was very friendly. She really listened when I described my symptoms, she asked a lot of follow-up questions, and once she diagnosed the problem, she really explained it to me andeven pointed out things on the x ray so that I would understand. Great doctor, would definitely recommend her.
