Did not show concern or explain care to me. She left me the feeling that "she was the important one" and just showed minimum concern. She walked out of the room and I didn\' know we were finished. So I called to her down the hallway and told her goodbye as she walked away. Very cold and acted as though I was taking away her time.

She has been a blessing by utilizing her expertise for my personal health. Doctor Ripperda\'s professional experience combined with her academia is very admirable. Doctor Ripperda has and continues to bring about my medical condition to a greater level of health. Medications she has prescribed have change my chronic illnesses. I am very pleased that they family clinic personnel has not changed as does multiple other professional representatives. computerized data processors can only dictate what someone has interred within the artificial intelligence. dr. Roberta personal input makes my visit very comfortable. thank you very much for providing her and the staff the opportunities to sustain and maintain and enhance our health for my health for the better, and thank you

I\'m 82 years old and have had more than my share of medical problems and traumatic problems. During the course of these fun filled experiences I have been treated in a number of VA. Military, and civilian hospitals, by a legion of doctors in a variety of specialties. In all candor, I must say that I have never received better treatment then that provided by Dr. Ripperda and the staff at the Santa Fe Clinic (B/S/W) in Temple Texas. They are the gold standard in my book!

My doctor is fantastic! The clerk from front desk ordered blood work and a drug test, instead of just the drug test. However, my doctor is trustworthy, dependable, and she listens.

Would like to find another primary. Good dr but has no emotion.
Dec 11, 2018
I did not see Dr Ripperda. she was an hour late and I finally had to leave. After checking in 10 minutes before my appointment, I waited another 20 minutes past my appointment time in the waiting room. I asked the receptionist if Dr Ripperda was running behind. she checked and said I was next ands I\'d be called back in 5 to 10 minutes. I was called back, told the Dr would be in shortly. she wasn\'t. it was an hour total past my appointment time. I pushed the nurses call button. they came in and I told them I couldn\'t wait anymore and I left. the Santa Fe clinic has become notorious for running very behind. I have been a patient of Dr Ripperda\'s for a long time but made the decision that day to change providers. I cannot keep going to a clinic that is always late. I have changed providers.

Dr Ripperda is a compassionate provider, who gives me the information that I need to make decisions about my health. She has always been respectful and kind. When she is training med students, she provides excellent feedback and explanations to them; yet I never feel like a case study or ignored which is an awesome way to teach how to best take care of one\'s patient. I feel very fortunate to have such a remarkable physician looking after me.
