My experience in Dr. Ress' office was extremely pleasant and fruitful. The receptionist was very welcoming and assisted me with all my doubts. The nurse was polite and friendly, and Dr. Ress was very nice and thorough with his work. I would gladly recommend him to anyone considering seeking a physician.
Top Notch Dr. Very concerned with patient, listens carefully. Highly recommend.
Very professional and straight to the point. I am not use to doctors being very personable but he was very brief yet touched on every important aspect of my health.
I felt very rushed and was not able to express my concerns appropriately.
Was very rushed and he almost seemed annoyed at times. Plus heard him scolding an employee which was very unprofessional. I felt bad for her that I was able to overhear it. Guess he was having a bad day.
It was an excellent, on time professional service offered by Dr. Ress! Highly recommended!
Such a wonderful doctor. So caring and includes me in the decision making process all the time.
Dr. Ress is awesome. Very very kind man, receptive to concerns, always quick to follow up. I like that my yearly physical is performed by a doctor rather than a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant. Highly recommended!
I was comfortable and Dr. Ress was kind and professional allowing me to ask questions and answering them.
Dr Ress is great, a real professional in all respects. Admissions was a bit of a hassle with my insurance. It was mailed ahead of time but no records were found. I had to call to confirm the policy which I felt the staff should had done which never did speak to the representative. Other than that minor issue all went well.
Quick, efficient and friendly
Simply amazing! Courteous, friendly, patient, down to earth, and KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING!
Dr. Richard was very thorough and patiently listened to our problems. We definitely like him and will be visiting him for our follow-ups. Highly recommend!
Friendly, caring, and utmost professional.
Dr. Ress is thorough, personable and professional. He has been my PCP for more than 5 years.
Very personable and easy to talk to. I love the fact that he was a cardiologist before becoming a GP.
I find this apparently recent method of evaluating a physician unnecessary and frankly,as a professional myself, unnecessary, unwarranted and highly unprofessional.
Such a pleasant, professional, considerate gentleman who I think will probably go way out of his way his patients.
Excellent practice, excellent doctor.
Dr. Ress is a calm, kind, thorough and knowledgeable doctor. I feel totally confident in his care. He addressed every question I had and clearly intended to be helpful to me.
Great first visit.
He was very helpful. I've always found Dr. Ress to be attentive to my needs and thorough as well. He also follows up well if there is a need to be in touch after a visit.
He put me at ease with his manner and I'm very nervous going to the doctor usually.
He is great !
Excellent visit. Dr. Ress is very thorough, attentive and professional. Uses immediate access to patient's online medical history to compare progress. Spends ample time, addresses questions and performs necessary tests. Highly recommend.
First time visit, not much to review
Dr. Ress was friendly and had a pleasant demeanor about him. I did not feel rushed during our session and he was great. However, considering this was my physical and I had a swollen tricep - he did not seem to pay much attention to it and has yet to respond to my follow-up medical query.
Great doctor. Very easy-going, attentive, and never rushed.
The problem is that often I have to suggest myself what should be tested, otherwise he would not do this himself.
He's a caring guy who seems to know what he's doing.
Listens to what your concerns are and answers your questions. Very kind and knowledgeable doctor. Would absolutely recommend and return myself again.
Very friendly doctor, who took plenty of time to talk to me even though the office was running late already. I felt taken very seriously and in good hands.
Very nice man, definitely recommend. Only issue was finding the place. Zocdoc location is a little off. The address is correct but the building is actually half a mile down the street. This isn't his fault just a word of caution.
Dr. Ress was extremely thorough and professional. The appointment went quickly, but I felt that Dr. Ress listened to my concerns and was helpful In coming up with solutions.
Dr. Ress has a very calm demeanor and he gives you 100% attention while you're there. Nothing felt rushed and the whole staff was very friendly.
Very effective, understand every question I asked. He is also considerate, do all the test I required for me . I recommend him very much!
Best doctor's visit ever. The staff was awesome.
Dr Ress was exactly as I hoped he would be. Unassuming and respectful yet clearly very competent and thorough. His manner throughout was entirely focused on what would be most helpful to me. His staff were similarly gracious and together made the overall visit a very satisfying and comfortable experience. Based on this, I would not hesitate to highly recommend Dr Ress and his team.
