ER visit

My experience with Dr. Riel was so very different from my last ER Doctor. I felt he was interested, thorough and took time to ask questions about my history as well as my level of understanding of the labs. He was caring and focused. Much appreciated.

ER Hoag Hosp.

The admitting process was smooth and efficient. Dr Riel was very through and had a very caring manner. As an ER Dr. he was able to tell me what it wasn't, which put my mind at rest, and he referred me to a neurologist.
