Patient Comments (2)
I've been seeing Dr. Riley for 4 years and she is an excellent physician with great expertise. She listens to the patient and tailors care based on their needs. Very nice, caring and knowledgeable.
in New York, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr Riley's for 4+ years for treatment of Primary Progressive MS and have found her care to be exceptional. Dr Riley has empathetic and sympathetic qualities, patience, and simple TLC consistantly above that of an average person. She brings "something extra" into her care. Of her medical knowledge I am completely confident. I believe the first 3 questions are irrelevant to actual medical issues. As with most busy offices, patience is a virtue when a phone is involved.
