My husband had surgery with him 5 years ago. He was a spinal neurosurgeon, so he could have gone to anyone in the world but chose to go to Dr. Riew, as everyone in the business knows that he is the best there is.

Extremely competent and experienced with willingness to explain and discuss issues and clinical recommendations. Was patient and took time to be certain the patient understood the reasons for his conclusions and suggestions. This was a very positive experience. Strongly recommend and trust Dr Riew.

Dr. Riew spent enough time with me to answer all my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all which seems to happen with many doctors. He carefully went over my MRI with me.
