Patient Comments (6)

Stay away from this guy. He is a smooth talker but a dangerous surgeon. He was asked to put in a central port for me so that I could received necessary IV medications. The port was infected and had to be removed by another surgeon. My breast has been destroyed because of his poor surgical skills...more

My husband and I have seen Dr. Rioux since 2007. Even if his office is a little farther away from where we live, we feel it is worth to travel to have him take care of our health.

Dr. Rioux is a superb clinician and surgeon. He managed my problem quickly and accurately. He ordered the appropriate imaging studies the next day, with the results back to me in 48 hours.
