“I evaluate the ‘whole’ individual, not just the disease.”
Ms. Ryker specializes in the easing of anorectal disease and GI symptoms and provides hemorrhoid banding, fissure management, and preventive digestive health services.
Language(s) - English
Ms. Ryker believes individuals respond differently to diet, stress and medications, so a “one-size-fits-all approach” does not apply to digestive health management. “I evaluate the whole individual, not just the disease. When focusing on digestion, multiple facets will often need to be addressed in promoting health and healing. Helping to discover ways to improve someone’s health and well-being is both a passion and my focus in caring for an individual.”
Ms. Ryker decided to become a gastroenterology provider when a family member was diagnosed with stage-4 colon cancer that could have prevented if “recommended surveillance had been performed.”
Ms. Ryker and her husband have three children. She raises Labradoodles and volunteers in youth programs and ministries.

Comments From Patients
She listens and she is very thorough and thoughtful. Certainly the best gastrointestinal clinical experience I’ve ever had. Also, the office seems very well organized.
I highly recommend NP Ryker.
Fantastic at her job and very thoughtful and thorough. Gentle, well practiced, and very informative.
Royce Ryker listens to me and takes my ulcerative colitis symptoms and my concerns seriously. She works WITH me to problem solve.
Royce’s staff (and Royce) are uniformly polite (even downright nice), knowledgeable and helpful. it is always a distinct pleasure to be greeted and treated by this group. All physicians and their staff should be like this.
