Major GOD COMPLEX! ARROGANT, EGOTISTICAL, and self righteous! I have never encountered a Dr. like Dr. Rider! He overruled the opinion of two highly respected surgeons, without running any test, much less examining me! He had NO interest in addressing my questions, nor my husbands. He offended my husband so much, that he got up and walked out of the room. If you want a surgeon who will tell you everything to do, without addressing any of your concerns, then he’s your man. I have no idea how this man has remained in practice!

Laid out all of the options, recommended one that was very effective and least difficult to recover from. Surgery has been 100% effective.
