After lots of research, I interviewed 5 surgeons. I chose Dr. Riou & would highly recommend him to my family & friends. I had a bi-lateral mastectomy w reconstruction. My last procedure was Apr 2016. My results are phenomenal. Other Drs who have seen his work remark how great the outcome is. Amazing because I experienced complications & Dr. Riou & his staff took excellent care of me. Talented and caring Dr. w an excellent staff.
I have been to Dr Riou for two procedures and I would go again for another. Great Doctor.

I went to Dr. Riou in 2013, after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Not only is he just a wonderful, compassionate human being, but he is so good at what he does. He truly cares, and takes the extra time to make sure every detail is done with perfection. Every doctor that has seen my results has been amazed, always stating what an incredible job he did. And if they were to see what he had to start with, they would have been that much more impressed! I wouldn't go to anyone else!
in Kannapolis, NC |
Dr. Riou did my reconstruction in 2004, after having breast cancer in 1981, he was very kind to me, and very knowledgable, he made me feel very comfortable. He explained everything in depth. Such a wonderful doctor, after all those years, he made me look good in my clothes again. He'll always be at the top of my list for making me feel good about myself again.
in Kernersville, NC |
If I had based my opinion on some before me I may have never visited Dr. Riou. I believe seeing is believing and I am glad I made the 1 1/2 hour trip to my consultation. I live in a town loaded with plastic surgeons and I believe Dr. Riou is by far more knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to others. His staff is friendly and informative. He called and checked on me personally after surgery, as well as, the fact that my breasts are significantly better than I previously had. Great job!
in Catawba, NC |
I would recommend Dr. Riou because of his expertise in his field and his communication of the procedure he will perform. He is a caring doctor and an excellent surgeon!
in Mooresville, NC |
Following my breast cancer diagnosis, my family practice Dr. recommended Dr. Riou to do my breast reconstruction. Dr. Riou is passionate about his work, well skilled, experienced and trained. My questions and concerns were always answered. He has an amazing staff, as well. Their longevity of working beside Dr. Riou speaks for itself. I would gladly recommend him to anyone needing reconstruction. My surgery was very successful and gave me a new lease on life!!!!

I was very pleased with my surgery by Dr. Riou after battling breast cancer. I totally trust him and his staff.
in Oak Hill, WV |
Dr. Riou and his outstanding staff saw me through a dark time when breast reconstruction was a necessity, not cosmetic. They treated me with great respect as well as an equal rather than "just a patient". Dr Riou has a skill level and intellect that is hard to match, and is a perfectionist to say the least. Every time I look in the mirror, I am eternally grateful for that. He leads by example, a man of great character and someone I wouldn't just call my doctor. The Riou team is family to me!

in Mooresville, NC |
I was diagnosed with breast cancer 11/2015; my general surgeon put me in touch with Dr. Riou for the reconstruction piece if the surgical puzzle. I could NOT have been placed in better hands. Dr. Riou is renowned in this area & comes highly recommended. He helped me feel at ease with the entire process. The staff are also PHENOMENAL!! Much laughter is shared at each visit. I will actually miss the entire crew once this chapter comes to a close. I can't thank them enough!

Dr Riou is awesome! For years I have not taken a t shirt off at the beach and this year I finally did it. Thank you
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Riou and his staff were wonderful. I was nervous about having a breast lift and he was very upfront about the scarring that I could encounter. I still made the decision to have it done and my scarring has been minimal. I called the office a couple of times with questions after my surgery and the staff assured me everything was normal. I am so grateful.
in Huntersville, NC |
Dr. Riou spent very little time with me other than to take pics and measurements. He never asked what my concerns were, pain I was having etc. I was told by the front desk that my paperwork would be submitted to the insurance company and we should get an answer back in 6 weeks. At 7 1/2 weeks I had heard nothing and called the office. I was told they forgot to send it in. So they quickly submitted it and had a decline in 3 days. I'm not sure what they could have submitted other than pic.
