I like Dr. Reister. Talked to me like I was a person and not just another patient. Very pleasant dr. He explained my options to help me cope with my allergies. Really enjoyed my visit. Would totally recommend him for a specialist.

Dr. Reister and staff are professional and pleasant! Everyone I had contact with took their time to explain procedures and results. Dr. Reister talks with you and not down to you. I felt relaxed and reassured and have actually recommended two co-workers to book an appointment because they are not happy with their current allergist.

Dr. Riester spent quite a bit of time with me, exploring all possible sources of my recurring skin rashes and making recommendations for managing the situation at home. The other staff were great as well, both during the visit and helping to get the best possible insurance coverage of prescribed medications.

I have been with Doctor Riester for a number of years now! I find him knowledgeable informed communicative and very helpful to me. I have severe allergies to a lot of different things and he has been one of the few allergist that has effectively been able to treat my conditions. I would recommend him to anyone!

I went to 2 other allergist in my network, but they did NOTHING, I had no choice. I had to seek outside help. My allergies were out of control and loosing a lot of weight. I knew right away, a no brainer as to who I would go to next. I had worked with Dr. Riester as an MA, found him to be personable, trustworthy and compassionate doctor. I knew he was the doctor that would help me, He truly cares about every person who walks into his office. Also very friendly and welcoming staff.

Dr. Riester was very thorough with Anthony’s case. Medicare made the whole process very difficult,but he and his staff worked diligently to get the nebulizer and medications he needed. I would recommend this practice to others. Sincerely Pat Napolitano

i have been going this this office for about 2 years. there is a Medford and a Sudbury office where Dr. Riester goes. Always got answers and this spring so much better. My only regret is that the word is out and he is getting busier every time I go in. My 2 children have allergies as well and they love going in he is so nice
