In addition to the actual problem I was seeing Dr. Ridolfi for, he and the NP working with him offered to provide help with another health problem I am having, which is exceptional. I appreciate that he is highly competent, on time, efficient, and kind.

This visit was a referral in the first time I saw the doctor. It was very evident that he reviewed my file before hand and do the history why I was there to see him. I found him. Knowledgeable caring and thoughtful.

I felt very comfortable talking to the doctor - he was well informed on my problem and had done research on the tests I had taken before he even saw me. I feel comfortable he is going to help me with my colon problem and the pain I am having.
