What People Say About Dr. Joel Riley, MD
Dr. Riley is certainly pleasant but when I sent him a very detailed letter of specific complaints he did not respond. That is no way to run a practice. So I could not recommend him.

I would not refer anyone to Dr. Riley because his staff is the worst. I cannot give a rating for him directly because I never saw him, only had 3 cancelled appointments with him and one cancelled procedure which his office cancelled.

In addition to Dr. Riley's superior experience and credentials, he has a great bedside manner. He puts the patient at ease and explains in detail every step in a procedure and then he provides prompt, courteous and professional follow up and consultation.
