Patient Comments (2)
Norwalk, CT |
DR. Riback has been my doctor since 1986. He's an amazing specialist. I wouldn't go or trust any other gastrologist other than him.
Not sure why others are only giving him 3's? He has treated me for over 10 years and is always very willing to spend time explaining any concerns you have and more importantly is an excellent physician. He also very quickly diagnosed and successfully treated our son who had contracted several infections while living and working in the Middle East. Dr. Riback reminds me of what medicine used to be and how it was administered. I only wish other doctors were as conscientious and talented as he is
