I was informed that the doctor would be late due delay in surgery, which is understandable. However I don't think I waited very long anyway. all the staff members were professional and courteous.

Kenneth G. – Aug 17, 2021
I am 55 and have horrible arthritis in the big joint at the base of my thumb. It is painful beyond words and the paingreatly reduces my ability to use it. I’ve had it injected with cortisone several times over the years. I quit seeing my previous hand dr because the previous doctor (not this doctor!) was so needlessly impatient numbing the area and inattentive in inserting the needle. The end result of those precious experiences was a painful experience and poor relief. Dr. Riggenbach did it PERFECTLY. He numbed it really well and inserted the needle with care and precision. The end result is a completely pain free joint that feels FANTASTIC!!! He was GREAT. I would highly recommend him if you have arthritic joint pain in your hand that needs relief.
