Ratings for Dr. Stephen W. Ripple
I rated Dr. Ripple and his staff with the best rating because we had gone to several doctors in the area and no one could find what was wrong with my son's knees. After seeing Dr. Ripple he showed us in the xray where my son has two leasions on both femurs and a cracked knee cap. I was amazed no one else caught that. I was due to the xray tech taking great films and Dr Ripple sitting there with us studying those films. My sons injury was very difficult to detect but Dr. Ripple found out the problem that my son had been suffering with for almost 3 months.
I twisted my ankle walking, minor injury I thought so I left it alone thinking it will heal, but after 4 months my ankle wa still swollen so I decided to see a doctor. Dr. Ripple was recommended to me by my sister, I called his office and explained my situation and that I had an ankle issue, his office told me he handles this type of injury, so I made an appointment to see him. I had already seen two doctors and had an MRI and x-rays done of my ankle from Arrowhead Sports Medicine who were very unknowledgeable and referred me to specialists. I believed Dr. Ripple was an orthopedic specialist or so his office made me understand. The office told me the visit will be $200. I saw Dr. Ripple he looked at my MRI and said needs to refer me to Dr. Mitchell who specializes in foot and ankle, I already have an appointment with this doctor. So I told him thanks for nothing to which he said your welcome, then after all this charged me $280 for nothing. NEVER AGAIN I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOC
Dr. Ripple is an exceptional Orthopedic Doctor with a very efficient staff. I have been in his care twice over the last several years. While my priority in selecting a doctor is always knowledge and skill of application, a recent episode warrants writing a review. I was in a lot of pain; I am currently in chemo treatment, and my injury was definitely not the norm. Dr. Ripple was professional, thorough, and honest in his diagnosis. He had his office follow-up to make sure I had received relief from my intense pain, and had advised his staff that, if not, he had made arrangements for his Associate (in his absence) to see me to avoid my having to deal with the severe pain over the coming weekend. This was not necessary as his treatment caused pain to subside and eventually disappear. We received knowledge/skill, an honest evaluation, successful treatment, & a caring attitude-I have selected an excellent Orthopedic Doctor-He is definitely rated at the top of the list of best of best.
