Outstanding!

After a year over trying every conservative treatment available without success for a Neck injury related to a Motor Vehicle Accident I found my way to Dr. Rieger . He knew exactly what the problem was and what to do about it. I needed a surgical solution. I was very nervous about surgery. But, Dr. Rieger was very reassuring and easy to talk to and put my fears at ease. I have found him to be kind, compassionate , accessible, a great listener, non- judgmental, extremely skilled, and extremely knowledgable. He has good humor, patience, is trustworthy, answers all my questions .. ( I have a lot of them! ) He went above and beyond; to ensure my best surgical outcome . There’s a word for this kind of commitment, passion and skill…….. Outstanding ! I highly recommend him !

Outstanding communicator

I was reaended in my car by another car traveling about 30 or 40 miles per hour, if I had to guess the speed by the feeling of the impact. My back was severely injured in this accident and I was recommended by several people to see Dr. Rigger. He has reviewed my X-rays and MRIs as well as extensive tests in his office. Dr. Rieger explaned exactly what my back did in response to the collision and explaned exactly what he is going to do in my upcoming surgery so well that I left his office with an incredible understanding of the procedure he is going to perfor and precisely what to expect. Dr. Rieger was VERY patient with all of the questions I asked him, which were many, about the procedure and I feel so at ease going into this operation. I will post another comment after my surgery and let you know how things went but, from all the patients I was able to talk to, I was amazed at the abundance of glowing reports from 100% of his post operation patients that was able to speak with. I have seen Dr. Gerstman as well and he has given me a couple of steroid shots in area of my back that were in the most pain and I acctally look forward to my next one because they went so smoothly and were very effective. All of the staff at New Jersey Spine Center have been overwhelmingly patient with me and treated me so well with scheduling and making sure I was scheduled around my schedule. My experience with the whole team has been very good and I highly recommend NJSC to everyone. Jeff Ctton

Great Doctor, Surgical experience and Post Op care

I highly recommend Dr.Rieger for anyone suffering from sciatic nerve pain. I had my own surgery done with him and was very pleased with the overall experience from the very first appointment until now. Between the office visits with his staff, the actual operation to the post op care he has provided me I can't decide which was the best. The office staff is wonderful and diligent,well educated and extremely helpful. Dr Rieger himself is an incredible physician that not only made my nerve pain go away but provided me with the best care possible while doing it. He has impeccable bedside manner and provided me with the confidence that everything would be OK despite the stressful and painful situation I was in. I am extremely happy with my overall experience and am so happy that I decided to go through this with Dr.Rieger by myside.

Great Surgeon

I would first like to say thank you to Dr. Rieger for all the help he has provided me the last three months. I suffered from terrible back pain and sciatic nerve pain for several years, which made my daily life stressful. After being told I needed a full spinal fusion from another surgeon, I was referred to Dr. Rieger by several people for a second opinion. After meeting with him and discussing my condition he determined that a Laminectomy should ease my pain and condition. His bedside manner was tremendous, and his sense of humor put me at ease. I had my surgery 9 weeks ago, and I can honestly say I am pain free for the first time in over 5 years. I would recommend this Doctor to anyone. Thanks for giving me my life back.
