My information was collected twice from two different MAs or nurses AFTER waiting three hours before being seen by the doctor so I had to provide my personal information twice. The front desk also instructed me to sign in using thewrong sheet (both cardiology and GYN are located downstairs so there are two different sign in sheets) and because the person at the front desk wasn’t paying attention, resulted in two patients being seen before me which was a huge inconvenience for me considering my time was already limited. Although Dr. Ritter is a great physician I wouldn’t recommend scheduling an appointment unless it’s an emergency or you don’t have any other options and are willing to wait a few hours or 3, before being seen. I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait this long to be seen by a doctor before.

Great doctor. Nice office. Friendly staff. Great experience. I’ll come back next year. Glad I found this place. I’d go early though. I was the first one there and was seen right away. When I left it had gotten crowded sowho knows how long the wait is during the day.

The staff and the doctor who took care of me were very friendly and helpful, but the wait time was unnecessarily long. I waited almost an hour to be seen. But I didn't feel as though I was being rushed, thedoctor did walk me step by step through my concerns. I will be going there again, hopefully the wait is not as long.

Starting with the staff, that were unprofessional by GOSSIPING ABOUT dr. Ritter which made me uneasy, but this dr. Was all over the place I got there at 12pm and was seen after 4pm when I left it was dark outsidealready( this was November ) she gave me a Pap smear and an STD screen, cause I told her I had an unprotected sex episode a month prior and that I had itching symptoms, she prescribed medicine that would take care of major infections like Chlamydia, gonorrhea etc and /or yeast infections. In December I got a voicemail from one of her offices ( a different one than the one I went to) the voicemail said that they would like to see me again( not once they mentioned that there was something wrong) came to find out in JANUARY that my Pap smear came back ABNORMAL but they only called I me ONCE and left that vague voicemail! Then when I finally spoke to one of the nurses in January, she said she was gonna have the doctor call me back to explain the next step. That was 2 weeks ago and they never called. I’m so mad that they would treat a serious matter so POORLY! For all I know I could have cancer now! But these people could care less about it!

Dr.Ritter was nice, friendly& professional at the visit, how ever the wait was more than an hour. Front desk unprofessional. 1 staff was on the office phone line practically yelling into the phone about drama outside of work. Everyone in thewaiting room could hear her conversation. Plus I have yet to receive my medication, Dr. Ritter has not sent them, even though I called after the visit & the next day.

Dr. Ritter was very gentle and pleasant however the wait time was a little over 2 hours. Not her fault, the practice itself is poorly run. It’s not ok to over book a doctor as he/she is more susceptible to makemistakes. I actually felt bad for DR. Ritter as they had her running around everywhere. A patient who is a rugular told me the wait time is typical. So if you don’t mind waiting 2 hours to see a Doctor then you’ve found your practice. Also, noticed that the ac was not working or not turned on when I arrived. It’s summer this shouldn’t be an issue. By the time I left it was on but they didn’t have any more patients. Makes no sense!

I made an appointment to see Dr. Ritter whom I love. However, the office staff is incredibly rude. I waited for sometime only to be told (because I inquired) that she was on vacation. I wasted a day of work fornothing. Dr. Ritter is amazing but I will never return to this office.

Just terrible! Extremely long wait in a very crowded office. Now, less than a year later, I find that Dr. Ritter has only prescribed me enough refills of a birth control prescription to last for 9 months. Upon calling the officefor a refill to last until my yearly appointment, I am told she is out of town with no appointments until December and no possibility of refilling my prescription. Ridiculous!

When you schedule an appointment and arrive on time/before time, you expect that your wait won't be more than 20 minutes; thats why you schedule it. After arriving and waiting over a half an hour I was told there were still2 people ahead of. Through further conversation I found out that they book for every 15 minutes; there is no way anyone is being seen on time, unless you are the first appointment. I have never experienced such a disconnect between service provider and a customer/client. I choose to give my business to the provider that gives services from the front of the office to the back. I left there never to return and I suggest others do the same. Don't allow doctors to herd you i their offices like cattle, you deserve better.. .

First, know that the office does not update what insurance Dr. Ritter takes, so when I arrived with Humana PPO (which they claimed they accepted), I was told that this was not valid insurance. I had to proceed with the appointmentanyway, as it was my only day off of work to have my check-up done. After waiting for an hour and a half, I finally saw the doctor. She did not introduce herself to me (even though I was a new patient) and rushed through my first pap smear, which was for me quite painful, and exam as if she had somewhere else to be and did not have time to make me as the patient feel comfortable and safe. As an OB-GYN, making patients feel comfortable before the exam is one of the most important things you can do. Overall, this was probably my worst experience with a doctor and doctor's office in terms of organization and overall patient care.

She is so sweet. She is very knowledgeable talks you through the whole OBGYN process which for most women is not a good experience. She is a doctor that actually talks to you. She really engages the patient and makes surethat the patient understands medical terminology. She is also quick with the entire procedure. The wait time might be a bit long so come early. Also the staff is nice and accommodating. I did like the all female staff that does work with this doctor.
