Ratings for Dr. Ralph R. Mingle
You will not find a more knowledg-eable doctor than Dr. Mingle. Dr. Mingle has been my primary care doctor for about 23 years. Dr. Mingle is also very patient and caring. I have many medical issues and Dr. Mingle has kept my medical problems in check. As a matter of fact, I credit Dr. Mingle with saving my life more than once. I trust Dr. Mingle's medical determinations 150%. Dr. Mingle practices in O.P., KS. I used to live in O.P. & began seeing him when I lived there. 14 yrs ago my job moved me to Topeka, KS. I drive almost 100 miles one way to see him every 6 months for my checkups. That's a long way and with the toll and gas, it's expensive. However, I refuse to change doctors. I just cannot find another doctor as competent and caring as Dr. Mingle so it is very much worth my time and money to continue to see him. If you are trying to find an excellent doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Mingle.
Dr. Mingle is a fantastic physician. Not only does he take the time to answer any and all questions you may have but he does so with patience and out of genuine concern. He truly cares for the well being of every individual he sees. I highly recommend him as a family physician.
Dr. Mingle gave me an incorrect diagnosis with very little time addressing my concerns, brushing off what I thought my problem was (which I found out was the correct diagnosis by seeing another doctor). My 14 year old son also went to him. My son went into office for exam without me (son's request) and my son came out telling me he needed complicated surgery. I was waiting right outside the exam room and Dr. Mingle never even called me in after the exam to explain or give me any information. He just expected my young son to understand all the information and pass it on to me. This was extremely poor practice and we will not be returning.
Dr. Mingle is the best doctor I have ever been to. He makes me feel comfortable and validates my complaints. He has been right on when diagnosing my problems and when he needed to, he referred me to the appropriate places. I would highly recommend him. He is not only very smart, he is a good listener and asks all of the right questions. I have been going to him for over 15 years.
Dr. Mingle nailed the diagnosis of my repetitive pneumonia immediately after several doctors had failed and it has never returned. Extremely compassionate and listens even when he is pressed for time. Great with children and relaxing to talk to. No white coat syndrome with this doc. He has been our family doc for over 20 years, yet always up to date on the latest treatments. He takes his calling to heart and it shows.
Dr. Mingle has been our family physician for more than 20 years. I've always been impressed when he asks about my husband or one of my kids when I've gone to see him. He is very knowledgeable and yet, is not condescending when I ask questions or bring up information I've gleaned from other sources. He very well may have lengthened my husband's life by referring him to a cardiologist for a 'new' heart murmur, giving us time to choose a valve repair over a valve replacement. Our whole family thinks that Dr. Mingle is the best!
Dr Mingle has treated my elderly father for the past 5 years. We could not be any more pleased with everything he has done for him. He takes the time to assure that my father understands what he needs to do, he doesn't care how many times he has to go over things with him, he wants to make sure he understands. To say we are pleased and thrilled with Dr Ralph Mingle would be an understatement. His care and compassion he displays is beyond reproach.
Dr. Mingle is a very fine physician. He takes time to make sure that all of your concerns are answered. He does not ever make you feel rushed. Even if he is running behind schedule, he takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer all your questions. My husband may well owe his life to Dr. Mingle. He ordered a PSA test for my husband which turned up prostate cancer. My husband previous doctor never suggested this test. He also took the time to refer him to a specialist for neurology rather than simply continuing to prescribe seizure meds that the previous doctor continued prescribing without ever bothering to do any follow up testing or referral to a specialist. He is absolutely tops in our book.
