Misdiagnosed my cancer as having an enlarged prostate. Awful diagnostic skills. Thinks he knows everything. I understand he is now practicing somewhere else. This doctor nearly cost me my life. He should be ashamed of himself. my advice is to avoid him at all costs.Thank god I went to another urologist who diagnosed me correctly.

Dr. Riechers is an OUTSTANDING Doctor. Since 1992, he has taken great care of me and provided honest and caring feedback to me. I trust Dr. Riechers immensely. I am highly prone to kidney stones and Dr. Riechers has always taken care of me. He instills confidence and always generates positive medical results for me.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. EXTREMELY THOROUGH EXPLANATION OF MY CONDITION AND COURSE OF TREATMENT. VISUALLY WALKED ME THROUGH MY TEST RESULTS AND IMAGING RESULTS. SPENT MORE THAN EXPECTED TIME TO EXPLAIN MY CONCERNS. I WAS PREVIOUSLY EXAMINED IN HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM, CONSULTED MY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN AND CARDIOLOGIST, AND FOUND DR. RIECHERS EVALUATION AND PROPOSED FOLLOW COURSE OF ACTION TO BE STATE OF THE ART. I WAS ACCOMPANIED BY MY SPOUSE OF 40 YEARS THAT WAS REASSURED

Dr. Riechers has a great Bedside Manner. I have been through some severe medical issues. Without question Dr. Riechers is one of the best Doctors I have in a litany of Doctors. He explains all aspects of the visit and/or procedures. I was always nervous of having to see a Urologist. Doctor Riechers has minimized that nervousness. Without hesitation i would recommend Dr. Riechers to anyone that has a urological issue!!
