Dr. Riela dismissed my concerns about my son for a full two years until I demanded an MRI. There was a Chiari malformation and a syrinx so large that the neurosurgeon said it would have entered his brain stem and caused him to stop breathing and swallowing on his own within 3 months had it been allowed to continue to grow. Dr. Riela refused to admit his missed diagnosis and told me he still could not link my sons motor delays to this issue. I’ve been frustrated for years with a medical system that allowed this to happen.

Dr.Riela has treated for a very long time. He was a doctor that others looked up to and knew that their patients would be taken care of when put in his care. Very sad that he will be leaving but hope that others will be able to treat up to the same care that he did.
