Dr Ring is actually the only doctor that I have found that takes time and care with her patients. She goes into details with you. She allows you to be comfortable to share all issues and that matters in overall healthcare as she can connect dots better. She truly is trying to improve your health for the better versus "treating" you and the symptoms. I find her a remarkable doctor.

Dr. Ring is an empathic listener. She asked me how I was handling my grief since my husband's death. She was not in a hurry. She took her time with me. I appreciated her concern.

Dr. Ring is a truly superb doctor. She is always kind, empathetic, easy to talk with, and incredibly knowledgeable. She explains things thoroughly and is able to answer any questions I have, looking up info online for me if needed. I have several medical issues that have similar symptoms, so it has sometimes been complex. Dr Ring has provided me with excellent care, and has even been able to balance my thyroid and hormone levels while I was going through Perimenopause and Menopause....not an easy feat. I have never had a doctor as thorough in identifying and treating medical issues. I wish all my family and friends could see her. She is brilliant, and I appreciate her guidance and caring more than she knows. I trust her completely with my medical care. Thank you so much, Dr Ring.

I have never had a doctor spend so much time with me understanding my FULL health history and making sure we really got to the root of the issue versus throwing more medication at me. I was so incredibly pleased. Dr. Ring is a rare gem in our current health system and I feel incredibly lucky to have found her and had the great privilege of being one of her patients
