Caring

Been a long time patience. What is outstanding about is she cares for her patients and treats the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.

Two Stars

NEVER on time. averages 45 minutes last for every appointment. repeats herself, does not seem to listen. her staff sucks. no consistency and when they are supposed to call in referrals it doesn't get done without repeated phone calls. relies on her staff to get stuff done and it doesn't get done. can't remember from one appointment to another what is going on.

Dr. Riester takes her time and listens to what you have to say and is not on her computer like some doctors when you are talking. I think she is very sweet.
