Only suggestion i have is I would feel more comfortable if after a brace or cast setting that the Dr would look at it right after the worker molds it to make sure it is a proper fit/mold . It seems like it would be so important in the healing process. Thank you. Everyone at this office and upstaiirs have all been super nice.

Because I have two torn rotator cuffs (I went to him for pain in my left arm), he took x-rays of both shoulders. He told me my right shoulder was so bad (hardly any pain, but I cannot raise it), I needed surgery for the shoulder would fracture. So we are having it done 7/20. He was on time (so often I have to wait forever for a doctor, not him, very punctual). His office staff is also awesome!!

I did not know in advance that I would not be seeing Dr. Riggenbach. I saw his PA. It would be good to know when the appointment is scheduled that you are being set up to see the PA instead of the Doctor.

Last August, Dr. Riggenbach performed carpal tunnel surgery on my right wrist. It completely healed and I regained full strength and function in less than 2 months. I am very pleased with the outcome and, quite frankly, could not have asked for a finer surgeon for this procedure.

Dr. Riggenbach has given me back the feeling in my hand and fingertips! That's a big deal for a guitar player!! No more numbness and tingling after years of it. Super awesome doctor. Very comfortable to have him operate on me. I would trust him to work on my kids! Thanks Doc!

I can not say enough great things about Dr Riggenbach and his staff. From my first visit in the Oviedo office to my surgery in Downtown Orlando to my last visit in Oviedo office it has been truly an amazing experience. Dr Riggenbach always took the time to explain what was wrong and what the outcome would be. Today, 3 months after surgery, I feel great and can't thank Dr Riggenbach enough for all that him and his staff have done for me over the past few months.
