What People Say About Dr. Richard Riegel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have never taken the time to write a physician review in the past, but I have to say I am extremely impressed with the outstanding care I received from Dr. Riegel. He took the time to listen to my concerns. He is incredibly intelligent, but more important he took the time to explain what was going on with me and options to improve my health. Working together, I feel better than I have in years. I would highly recommend Dr. Riegel as the best physician I have ever seen.

Dr. Riegel is arrogant and condescending. His colonoscopy prep is terrible and patients with slow digestive systems won’t be cleaned out. He diagnosed me with something another much more experienced GI doctor said I don’t have. All he cares about is staying on schedule.

Most doctors I run perpetually behind schedule. Dr. Riegel runs ahead of schedule. He spent an appropriate length of time with me and ensured that I had no remaining questions before ending the appt. I later called the office with a question. He called back - instead of a nurse or aide. Most unusual these days.
