I'm impressed with the office layout & decore + like the classical music played.I continue to be impressed by Dr. Ringpheil, who is also treating my son.

The entire staff was extremely pleasant and I appreciate being able to see the doctor on such short notice. Everything was top notch!

#32019-05-15

nice music!

#42019-01-16

Office atmosphere was wonderful, which made the experience that much better. It was nice to see Dr. Ringfeil in a not so hectic setting (like Jefferson Dermatology!)

I thought the waiting area was decorated beautifully and made me feel relaxed and at home.

The only (minor) thing that I was disappointed in was that when I booked the appt. via phone, I was told that in addition to my cosmetic questions and consult, the Dr. would also be able to do my full body check. It turned out that there was not enough time to do both.

#22011-07-27 15:04:39

It was good

#32018-12-21

I have a suggestion: I noticed that two of the lovely rugs pose hazards to patients using walkers or who may have other mobility issues. The large rug placed at an angle and the narrow rug placed in front of the reception desk leave no room for these individuals to safely manuveur around the reception area and are likely to contribute to fall risks. I would suggest leaving these areas clear.

#42010-10-04 12:14:56

I can't think of anything else that you can do, everything was excellent.

#52018-10-24

I do not like waiting long periods of time in either the reception area or exam room fort he Dr to come in. The exam with the Dr should be relatively close to the appointment time

#62019-05-23

Everything was great!

#72011-02-17 17:11:54

I can't think of anything at this time.

#82019-01-25

i was completely satisfies with everything and everyone. Even my lateness was not held against me.
