What People Say About Dr. Deborah Riester, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Been a patient for close to 20 years. Over that time Dr. Reister has consistently listened to my complaints, ordered testing when necessary, made correct conclusions about any diagnosis and given sound medical advice. Every time I listen and follow her instructions my symptoms and/or illness has eventually gotten better. To those patients who need coddling— she may not seem like she is listening sometimes— but she is —and she is trustworthy... and has been so far — precise in her diagnosis. Totally trust her
