Naperville, IL |
I went into labor at 2 am New Year’s Day. My baby was breech, but the nurses at MetroSouth medical center didn’t figure that out until around 9 pm. I didn’t see Dr. Riser until 10-10:30 that night, and she did a c-section. Terrible care.

I hate her. It was my first experience at the gyno and she's why I'm not going back. She spent a total of 5 minutes diagnosing a rash a developed, lied about the ointment she recommended, and on top of that gave me a pap smear when she said she was "just checking the rash".And when I said she was hurting me she actually put her hand on my stomach to try and restrain me and kept going. I wouldn't let her examine a plant let alome family or friends

I agree with most of the comments here. I went to her with my first child, not knowing anything about ob or having children period I went along with everything she had said and did. Basic forced me to have an induction and stripped my membranes by tugging so hard I didn't walk that day and left in tears. The last 4 visits. My post op appt was quick and rushed. I felt she didn't care about me at all. Totally ruined my first birth experience. With my second i switches drs it was so much better.

I had an embarrassing and horrible experience with Dr. Risser. She made me very uncomfortable by asking me an inappropriate question that she had no business asking me. She sent me home in tears. Besides that, she rushed the appointment and I saw her for a total of 3 minutes. I didn't even have a chance to ask questions, nor did she offer any medical advice. She only gave me judgement. She's in the wrong business, and you should look elsewhere.

Dr. Risser comes off as pleasant enough, but my exam was far too rushed. I had questions about my birth control options that she wouldn't even answer, just threw me on a random one. She wouldn't even check my records to see the ones I had been on previously. I feel like I still need to see another OB to get answers and find a birth control that will fit me best.

This doctor started at 32 weeks of pregnancy pressuring me to schedule a C-section because my baby was breeched. At every following appointment it got to a point that I became very uncomfortable going to my regular appointments because I was almost being bullied to make a C Section appointment against my wishes. She never once looked at my preferred birth plan and she did not educate me about the options available to help turn my baby so that I could have a natural birth (inversion). Further whe

Stay away! she does not care for her patients. Has no time for them! does not like to answer questions. will not tell you everything about your health and has problems filling requests that you ask for. thinks because she the doctor she is right. Her staff is rude! Been with her for 10 years and currently looking for a new doctor!
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Risser has been my ob/gyn for about 8 years. She's always pleasant. I've never had an issue with her. I've never had a baby; but she still treats me as she would a pregnant woman.
