Dr. Reiss is a wonderful, caring physician. He informs you about all your procedures, never makes you feel rushed and answers all your questions. He is very liked and respected by the physicians, nurses and staff at the hospital. A lot of them have had surgery by him. Dr. Reiss preformed surgery on me and I would recommend him to all my family and friends. If I ever need surgery again I would not go to anyone else.

Dr Reiss is a wonderful surgeon! Will be forever grateful to him! I was diagnosed by a prominent Gastroentology doctor as having an internal bleeding hemorrhoid & treated with steroid suppositories while continually getting worse. After a year of continued bleeding , I decided to go to Dr Reiss to have the hemorrhoid removed. Thankfully, he did an exam of his own & did a biopsy; found it was cancer &had spread to a lymph node & diagnosed by Oncologist w/ Stage 3b cancer! He saw me thru it all

Excellent! Dr Reiss excels in all areas: surgery, compassion, patient care...I could go on and on. I credit him with saving my life after being misdiagnosed and treated by another doctor and I was getting worse. I got my family Dr to refer me to Dr Reiss and after initial exam, he immediately scheduled me for a outpatient, did biopsy & results were Stage IIIB Cancer. Due to his expedient care and establishment of cancer care team of Dr's, I got best of care and am currently cancer free.

Most compassionate and understanding doctor/surgeon I've ever met. He performed a double mastectomy on me, all I can say is he has the best caring, supportive bedside manner. He is the only surgeon that will ever perform surgery on myself or any member of my family !!!
