Ratings for Dr. Thomas J. Ripperda
If you have a work comp claim avoid this provider. He definitely works for the insurance companies and not the betterment of the patient. He does not listen to the subjective side of the patient, show's very little interest in what you have to say. He does however like to comment on psychiatric issues, throwing out diagnosis, when no formal evaluation are done accept his obervation of the patient during his initial exam. AVOID provider if you can. Otherwise I would recommend tape recording all appointments for your own safety.
Worst doctor ever! Pretty much strung me along and than was like well can't find anything and threw me a side like I was trash. His assessments aren't thorough, doesn't have time for anyone, doesn't care to do new tests, doesn't listen to what the patient wants or thinks. Acts like he is better than everyone else. Worst experience ever!
