I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to Dr Robert Rietz, he ignored signs of oral cancer in my husband's mouth for months. We ended up going through 16 weeks of radiation therapy and 3 chemo weeks of treatment. If he would have been more observant of what our dentist found treatment wouldn't have been so long or devestatating. In my opinion his license should be revoked.
