Dr. Ripich attended SUNY Health-Science Center in Syracuse, NY, and completed his residency and training at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.

My philosophy of care is to put myself in the patients’ shoes. I want to connect with them and understand them.
I wanted a career that would provide me with unlimited opportunities. My dad was a doctor, so I knew going into Medical School would put me on a track for a meaningful career that could take me anywhere in the world.
I built my practice around having compassion for patients, and I think it made a difference in how my team around me works and cares for our patients.
Trust. It is important to me that patients trust me. I take the time to get to know them and understand their lifestyle to care for them.
Growing up I was an active hunter and fisherman. I have a one-year-old Australian Shepherd who keeps me busy and has gotten me back outside doing the things I love again.
I am happily married; together we have five children: four girls and one boy.
