Shoulder Reviews

“Whenever I deal with this office, I am impressed with the whole operation. It starts with the folks at the front desk. Whether I talk to them on the phone or in-person, they are smart people and very professional. This continues with all the other staff that I deal with in the examination room and with Dr. Ringnes. I'm pushing 70 and deal with a lot of different medical offices nowadays. This one stands out.”

“I have had multiple surgeries performed by Dr. Ringnes. He has a fantastic bedside manner: explains, listens, and empathizes. I appreciated how he collaboratively approached my care plan by providing me options and referring to other specialists when appropriate. I truly felt that he had my best interest in mind throughout. Great guy with a decent sense of humor! I know this is a platform for review of the provider, but his office staff is extraordinarily supportive.”

Knee Reviews

“Dr. Ringnes discussed plenty of options with me, dove in depth about the procedure, and really just made me feel comfortable from start to finish. I knew I was in good hands when he showed up the morning of the procedure with a Raider's bandana on. Thanks, Dr. Ringnes. Three months post-op, and I am feeling great.”

“Dr. Ringnes is a comprehensive orthopedic surgeon. When I got admitted to the hospital in January, Dr. Ringnes was the ortho surgeon on duty. He explained the two-leg breaks I had, emphasized the necessity of surgery to repair the tears, and answered my immediate questions that night, and over the following days with honesty and patience. I am pleased to inform you that I have recovered 100% range of motion and strength in my leg. My gait has improved, and I walk unaffected by injury. Thanks, Dr. Ringnes!”

“I have tried to keep my appointments brief and only asking questions of Dr. Ringnes that were most important to me at that time. Surgeons are busy Doctors, and I respect that. That said, in the future, I know he will accommodate more time for my questions and concerns if I need it. He has always treated me with dignity and respect which I highly value. Dr. Ringnes has extremely focused a great listener and an excellent surgeon. I want to mention Kathy, the care coordinator for surgeons at TFH, was instrumental in addressing many questions, numerous concerns, and a boatload of insecurities I harbored before surgery which helped me to go through with it.”
