I visited Dr. Rihner recently and I was impressed. I was sent over by urgent care with chest pains and I was able to have my test done the same day in his office. I would recommend his to anyone.

I cannot offer enough kudos to Dr. Rihner as he has provided care for my sister. When she first visited him, she was transitioning between a pediatric cardiologist to adult care. Dr. Rihner sat and talked with her to develop the best medical plan for her. His jovial personality kept her laughing and placed her at ease to discuss her needs. He's monitored her through pregnancies and it has been comforting to know that he always finds time to see her when concerns have arisen.

Mobile, al |
Wonderful Doc! and wonderful staff! Love coming here!
in Daphne, Al |
I was just in recently and I noticed some of my favorite employees were missing. They seem to have a huge turn over in staff. A few of the nurses that have been there for a while are sometimes short and hurry you out the door. One girl made my dad come back for a blood check because she was busy. I live an hour away and I'm busy too. Dr Rihner is a little goffy sometimes but he is a good dr. I like seeing familiar faces please stop hiring new people who aren't the brightest.

Been seeing Dr. Rihner for 13 years after having a massive heart attact. Without his care, I wouldn't be around. If you have any problems go see him or the others doctors, (Dr. Grosz and Dr.Gupta) plus the staff. These guys are the best in the state....
