Here's a money hungry doctor who really doesn't care anything about his patients at all ... I mean nothing ... he just wants your money and that is all he's out for ... I went to see his nurse practitioner and she told me that they don't do back problems there and to go see my family doctor for that stuff ... well it turns out that I needed my gallbladder taken out and it was very badly inflamed ... she did care nor did he because they didn't do back problems there ... they acted like I was some kind of drunk that came off the streets but I never drank a drop at all but she ask me why I quit drinking 3 different times and I told her I have drank a drop in over 17 years ... they wanted to give tests that were uncalled for and inappropriate for my problem ... I highly recommend to stay away from this type of doctor only if you want to get misdiagnosed and have a bunch of tests that you really dont need then hes your doctor...

Dr. Riggs has been my doctor for almost 10 years and I have always received excellent care from hi. He was able to diagnose my problem that no other doctor had and has treated me followed me for this problem which has changed my life for the better. He has always been very pleasant and professional anytime I have seen him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Terrible bedside manor. He does not listen to what you have to say ans spends the majority of the time typing and reading his previous notes. Find another doctor.

He does not seem to care on what you have to say and tries to tell his patients that because was in an abusive situation when I was younger is the reason why I have stomach aches no solution or plan to try and help
