Dr Riley understands deeply the type of communication required when treating pediatric patients. His ability to relate at a kid’s point of view is just as apparent as his technical acumen. We highly recommend Dr Riley and RMHC

My daughter has scoliosis and will be having back surgery soon. My daughter really likes Dr. Riley and so do I. She's 14 years old and can be a little moody on occasion, but Dr. Riley always talks to her and can always make her smile by the end of the appointment. I love the way he always talks to her directly and makes eye contact with her. He makes her feel involved and important. He addresses all of her questions and encourages her to ask more. She never feels like she has a bad question. He always makes sure she understands his explanation first then asks me if I have any questions. He always let's me know that if I do have questions later I can always contact him. I think its important that my child, as the patient, understands what's going on. She always leaves her appointments with Dr. Riley feeling better and so do I knowing that she is less anxious about the process.

My daughter has been seeing Dr Riley for several years. He has treated her for a broken elbow, scoliosis, and recently a broken collar bone. Dr Riley is truly amazing and we are so fortunate to have him as my daughter orthopedic.

We had an emergency and needed to get in quick. Dr. Riley and his staff were able to get us in quick and treated us above expectation. His staff was amazing and he and his assistant Araceli were so compassionate. We will refer everyone we know to Dr. Riley.

My family has been very blessed to have Dr. Riley as our provider. He has seen two of my daughters but three of my children are patients of this clinic. From my eldest to my youngest we have received exceptional care and treatment from this facility. Dr. Riley in particular has made every visit one full of hope. You can tell his dedication and passion in healthcare as soon as you meet him. I also commend his honesty because he does not allow his pride to interfere with the treatment of my child. He is very honest with the scope of his practice and often incorporates other providers to ensure that my children receive thorough treatment. Dr. Riley also does a magnificent job at including both the parent and child in the treatment plan. He explains things clearly and in a way that my child can understand what is happening and how their input is essential to getting better. Overall I am satisfied in the care my family has received from this facility, and would highly recommend Dr. Riley.

I had done research for the best doctor for my son. After our 1st appointment I realized that all my research was well with it. Dr. Riley was amazing. The way he interacts with his patients and talks to his patients was outstanding. It made my son feel empowered of his own body. My son handled his diagnosis with a calm and easy about the next steps. I know this is all because Dr. Riley talked to my son and answer his questions. Took his time with my son and made sure he was good about his diagnosis. When we left my son said mom you picked the best doctor for my back. I’m not worried about anything, he’ll fix me right up and I’ll be back to sports soon! That is all I needed to hear as a mom. If my son can have a major surgery with peace then his his parents can follow his lead and be at peace as well!

Dr. Riley is an amazing doctor. He is informative to parents answering and addressing all questions and concerns. He does an excellent job of being the child’s doctor addressing them and talking to them explaining everything for their understanding. He has a wonderful way of even mentioning and bring up concerns or matters the children may be thinking but not mentioning or that may arise before their next visit. The offices are clean, office staff friendly and helpful, wait times and making appointments are smooth. With scoliosis my daughter has been seeing him for almost three years, in that time there have only been two mishaps, both with office staff. Each was handled well by the office manager and remedied quickly. We are all humans and make mistakes how they are handled says a lot of a Dr. and his practice. All in all it has been smooth and positive. Dr. Riley: Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, clean, supportive, communicative, and punctual.

You won't find better Orthopedic staff and surgeon anywhere.

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 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.

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!

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.
