Dr. Ribeiro Neto's office was not in charge of scheduling my appointments. The Sarcoidosis Clinic Coordinator was responsible for this. I found it difficult to get a return call. It was a 14 hour drive and I explained the different organs that were affected and was assured that I would be able to see every specialty that Dr. Ribeiro Neto ordered the next day. This was not the case so I have to make a return trip. I simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ribeiro Neto! He was absolutely wonderful!

All doctor's should take lessons from this doctor! He was very compassionate, knowledgeable, and went to great lengths to ensure everything was explained to my understanding!
