Dr. Riggs is an excellent physician. She is very caring and is also straightforward with her approach. (She tells it like it is.) I feel she wants what is best for the patient, while keeping them as comfortable as possible. She overlooks nothing. Very thorough. She also has a sense of humor which is a bit refreshing when dealing with this disease. I truly feel I owe this doctor my life and feel I have a better quality of life due to her care. Highly recommend Dr. Riggs.
