Yes, I liked Dr. Ringpfeil's attentive, friendly demeanor and the fact that she expained things well, making available every sort of treatment, but also making clear what was needed/recommended and what could/should be skipped in a sensible, conservative approach.

I really appreciated how knowledgeable the doctor was about my condition. I also felt that she listened well and considered my opinion. Great job! Cant wait to come back.

I appreciated having a conversation with the Physician, as well as developing a plan together. Accentuating the positive when there is so much negative really helps in enthusiastically executing the plan.

DO NOT CHANGE A THING- YOU FOLKS ARE WONDERFUL!!!!!

#92018-08-21

Almost too methodical - thought of one more 15 second type question after Dr. left re one spot not noted - would have waited some time to have her look at it. Told no time until lunch.
