What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

All was extraordinary, compared to most doctor's offices. However, the doctor's explanation of the condition was particularly outstanding.

Everything! I appreciate the fact that Dr. Ringpfeil has a great understanding of my medical condition and how it has affacted my skin. I look forward to seeing her for all my future dermatalogical needs. I really needed a wonderful dermatologist and am grateful to Dr. Sandorfi for referring me to Dr. Ringpfeil.

#22011-01-12 12:15:01

Dr made eye contact and listened to my concerns....

#32021-12-15

It is clearly evident taht Dr. Ringpfeil is genuinely motivated by listening to your full symptoms, issues and then selecting the approach that is best for you. I scheduled my appt with the hopes of undergoing pricey treatments. Rather than signing me up and taking my check, she insisted that we first address the cause of my problems. Obviously, her goal is to heal the patient, not simply select the treatments that would be most lucrative for her. Impressive.

New options! Every dermatologist I've gone to says and does the same things. I'm happy to be trying something new since those other methods didn't work.
