      Dr Riley and his staff made me comfortable from the first phone call. Dr Riley answers all my questions to my satisfaction. I am impressed with his skill in performing my minimally invasive valve repair surgery. And I am pleased to have found a surgeon that spoke with me as a human, not as another procedure. The surgical staff was excellent about keeping my family informed at each step during the surgery. I appreciate Dr Riley's humor which helps take away some of my anxiety. I highly recommend

      He is awesome in every way. He is a highly skilled surgeon, highly respected among his peers, but best of all, he responsive to a patient's questions and needs!

      He is an excellent surgeon and would highly recommend him to anyone needing valve replacement and an aneurysm fix. He makes you feel very comfortable about what will happen and his surgical staff went out of their way to update us on how the surgery was going.

      Dr. Riley is an amazing surgeon. I feel very fortunate that he was the doctor to perform my lung surgery. He is very caring, and takes the time to answer questions. It is obvious that he is a gifted surgeon. My surgery and recovery went extremely well and I am very thankful to him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
