Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Riske is so caring and his staff are the best! He takes time to explain surgery techniques and is the best eye surgeon I’ve ever been associated with!

I went to see Dr. Riske for eyelid surgery to remove a growth on my eyelid. Dr. Riske was very good at explaining the procedure before hand, so I knew what to expect. While the procedure was somewhat uncomfortable, Dr Riske told me what he was doing as he did it. Knowing what was occurring made it much better.

While I'm aware that Dr. Riske is an excellent physician, I found his bedside manner to be very poor. He is quite arrogant, condescending, and has no patience for questions about alternative diagnosis or treatment options. We will seek treatment elsewhere.
