What People Say About Dr. Jaren Riley, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He was great! Not only did he explain things well, he made us all feel at ease and that having scoliosis is not a bad thing. He talked to my husband and myself but also to our daughter (not like other doctors who only talk to the parents because the child is a minor). The appointment was fun, friendly and relaxing. My daughter even said "I wish he could be my doctor all the time."

Dr. Riley has an amazing rapport with patients and ability to explain what is going on with their growing bodies. He also tries to take as conservative an approach as possible to enable kids to be kids. Highly recommend!

Dr. Riley cares for my daughter as one of his own. He recently performed spinal fusion surgery on her and unfortunately, there were some complications. Dr Riley navigated each one and saved our girl from paralysis. He was there every step post op and continues to go above and beyond. He and his team are rock solid and I would not hesitate to go back to them again.

Dr. Riley is a miracle worker, he took such wonderful care of our son. He had a 60 degree curve in his spine, and Dr. Riley straightened his spine- we never dreamed it could be rectified to the point it is. He is wonderful with his patients, put us at ease and is an incredibly talented doctor.

Great job by Dr. Riley! Our son had a challenging elbow injury from high school sports and Dr. Riley did an awesome job with him. Strongly recommend for adolescent sports injuries. Thank you!

If I could give 10 stars, I would! I loved the office, the staff and the wait time was next to zero! They fit me in so I didn't have to wait for days or weeks to be seen. But my favorite part of the experience was when Dr. Riley walked into the room. He spoke to my 3 year old with such care and skill...looking her in the eye as if she were the most important thing to him! It melted my heart AND made me so happy! I was excited for our follow up appointments! THANK YOU TO ALL who helped !

Dr. Riley is hands down the BEST doctor! Throughout numerous office visits and one surgery, Dr. Riley has been consistently patient, kind, thorough, and skilled while attending to our 16 year old son. He values our sons input and is respectful of his age and feelings. As parents, we feel well-informed and valued. Dr. Riley and his staff have exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful!

WOW -- what a great doc. He was kind and helpful to my 14 year old granddaughter. She was immediately comfortable with him. Great communicator with kids. Appreciated his conservative approach to treatment while explaining the next steps in the event initial treatment does not work. Kind,compassionate professional.

Dr. Jaren Riley is excellent, and I recommend him highly. He is professional, kind, and cares for each patient as he would his own family. We interacted with several doctors and Dr. Riley rose to the top because of his expertise, great bedside manner, clear communication, and obvious understanding and skill with the complex injury our son had. As parents, we were afraid to have ANYone do surgery on our 12 year old son. but our fears were quickly allayed when we met Dr. Riley.

I would not even consider taking my children to any other Pediatric Orthopedic Spine Specialist/Surgeon. Dr. Jaren Riley, and his team are very professional, knowledgeable, sensitive to concerns, patient in answering a lot of questions. Dr. Riley treated my child as if he were treating his own. Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude..

Dr. Riley and the entire staff are so warm and friendly. They made us feel at ease during a time when we were uncertain of the outcome. He explains everything and takes time to answer all our questions. We never feel like we are rushed.

We met with Dr. Riley, knowing that our son had scoliosis, but no idea how bad it was. Dr. Riley gave us the the facts with compassion, and laid out our options. Scary as it was, we knew that surgery was the only option. With school starting soon, we had to act fast so our son could start school on time. Dr. Riley and his staff made a spot for us in their busy schedule. The surgery was preformed to perfection and his recovery has been amazing. Love the office staff and PAs are awesome.

Dr. Riley and his staff are fantastic! We went to him for a second opinion originally after we had a bad advice at Children's. Dr. Riley has been very thorough and compassionate at every appointment or surgery we have had with him. We will be seeing him for many years to come and we could not be more comfortable with him and his staff. Eric, Zach, Araceli and the rest of the staff are great to work with. Thank you all for all you do for our Emilia. We feel like Part of your orthopedic family!

Dr. Riley performed surgery on my daughter's leg. He and all his staff are incredibly kind, caring, professional, and knowledgeable. As a critical care RN, I am very particular about who takes care of my children and I would highly recommend Dr. Riley to everyone.

Dr Riley never rushes through an appointment. Both of my daughters have seen him and he is wonderful. He gives great advise, just like it's his own kid. I would highly recommend Dr Riley and won't go anywhere else. I completely trust him and his knowledge of injuries.

My son has been going to Dr. Riley for over two years. We couldn't ask for a better doctor! He is thorough, highly skilled, kind, effective, and best of all, our son just adores him. He treats him with respect, jokes around with him, and explains everything to him so he can understand what is happening. Not only is Dr. Riley fantastic, his entire staff is equally remarakable! We have always had great experiences and would highly recommend Dr. Riley to anyone.
