Ratings for Dr. Samuel J. Rickerl
I would never reccomend him to anyone. Rude and doesnt seem to care about anyone but himself. After accepting me as a patient he refused to write my prescription after diagnosing the problem unless i switched to him as my ob dr. All he cares about is how many patients he has and not quality of treatment.
I think Dr. Rickerl is one of the best OB/GYN's around! When I was faced with an unexpected c-section he calmly and rationally walked me through it and gave me the best possible care I could have asked for. I get in on time every single time, have never waited more than 20 minutes. He is very helpful and one of the smartest men I've ever met. I did a ton of research on OB/GYN's in the area before picking him and he graduated at the top of his class and really knows his stuff. He's respectful to women and I believe he treats his patients as he would expect his wife and daughter to be treated as well.
I really like dr. rickerl despite the fact I hate the group he works in. My daughter was born with her cord around her neck and if it had not been for his quick thinking and observation of fetal heart rate she might not have made it. He also was very good about answering my questions as a first time mom.
