It was a physical and the focus was only diabetes related and the visit was done in 10 min. I had so many questions - for a physical, it's important to check ear, throat - just my knees were tapped and my lungs were listened to by the care provider. The assistant did test my feet. That was about it. Everything else was "schedule another appointment".

Dr. Rittenberg is ALWAYS friendly and highly personable during my visits. I did not always find my past experiences with prior primary care providers but have always been happy with Dr. Rittenberg in this regard.

Never felt like I was being rushed through so the doctor could meet his quota. Dr. Rittenberg is so interested in what I am saying about how I am feeling. He doesn't tell me how I should be feeling based on what he thinks.

Dr Rittenberg is always a lot more focused on filling out paperwork than listening. He could also benefit from some training in dealing with LGBT patients. He can be insensitive. I have several major health concerns and every time I try to bring them up, he just brushes them off and says I'm fine.

I have a complex medical history - you could call me a frequent flyer. Dr R is the central hub of my larger and seemingly ever expanding medical team. He is not only a great Doc - he has become a trusted friend. He plays a vital role in my overall health care. I cannot say enough good things about the way he looks after me.

I don't recommend health care workers. Should be personal decision.

Rittenburg is really great at suggesting treatment, and the origin of the issue, but I could use more info about how I can prevent the issue (carpal tunnel).

If I could give Dr. Rittenberg at "10" in responding to these questions, he would definitely would have received It.
