Review of Dr. Riew

- in San Diego, CA |

Dr. Riew takes time to know his patients. He makes us (my wife and I) feel very comfortable. He takes time to explain what needs to be done. Dr. Riew did a Cervical Discs surgery on my neck 4 weeks ago. The surgery was success. I felt no more pain. Thank you Dr. Riew. You are the BEST!!!

Review of Dr. Riew

- in Jersey City, NJ |

Very thoughtful, paid detailed attention to test results and my "story", wonderful style balancing warmth with professionalism. However, be prepared to wait.....as he gives generously of his time. He certainly won my trust after the hour he spent with me, and admittedly, I'm not easily impressed. Dr. Riew appears to be an outstanding asset to the NYP community. I recommend him with enthusiasm.

Dr. Daniel Riew was very thorough and answered all my questions. I will have some more tests and schedule another meeting with him to discuss what steps to take next.

Review of Dr. Riew

-Dallas, TX |

Had a cervical spine issue. Dr Riew was third doctor I consulted. He clearly is the top specialist in his field. Was very knowledgeable about my issue and very informative about my options. Did not rush to surgery first. Would recommend him highly

Review of Dr. Riew

- in CA |

My husband had surgery with him 5 years ago. He was a spinal neurosurgeon, so he could have gone to anyone in the world but chose to go to Dr. Riew, as everyone in the business knows that he is the best there is. He had been suffering for years until his hands got so numb that he couldn't operate safely. Dr. Riew's operation cured him and he returned to work for another 3 years before retiring. He passed away unexpectedly last year but never had a day of neck problems since the surgery.

Review of Dr. Riew

Wait wait wait wait wait (like 4+hours in the reception area!!!) and then be told by Riew that you really need to have a fusion but he won’t operate on you because your case is too risky. I thought doctors are supposed to “do no harm.” Isn’t leaving a patient in severe pain and with terrible radiculopathy doing harm. Or is there a greater chance of harming Riew’s reputation?this office is terrible. Reception area is unorganized and mean. Riew didn’t eve do the exam. Nurse and PA do all the work

Review of Dr. Riew

-Champaign, IL |

9 years ago he did surgery on my husband. Outcome not good, Dr was a primadona, and followup was just a joke. And because of all the hardware he put in, no other Dr will touch my husband's problem.

Review of Dr. Riew

- in NJ |

Had an anterior and posterior fusion not quite two weeks ago. People cannot believe I had such a huge surgery (C2-T1) such a short time ago. Each day I notice improvement. I was given a soft collar only, and told to wear it only if I wanted to. Don’t need it at all. It was really painful that first week or so but if you need Cervical surgery do not go anywhere else. Dr. Riew is the only man I will trust to operate on my neck. Also, 5 stars to NYPH staff. Thank you!

Extremely competent and experienced with willingness to explain and discuss issues and clinical recommendations. Was patient and took time to be certain the patient understood the reasons for his conclusions and suggestions. This was a very positive experience. Strongly recommend and trust Dr Riew.

Dr. Riew spent enough time with me to answer all my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all which seems to happen with many doctors. He carefully went over my MRI with me.
