What People Say About Dr. Thomas Riolo, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I went to see Dr Riolo after two weeks of acute upper back pain - I had not been sleeping, and was in a great deal of pain. After I left his office, I was hopeful and felt so much better(mentally). Dr. Riolo was empathic, knowledgeable, and had great bedside manner - I could tell that he really cared and wanted to (and would be able to) help me. He gave me an epidural shot a few weeks later, and it was very effective. I wish that all doctors were as empathic, knowledgable, and skilled as Dr Riolo is.

My experience with Dr. Riolo, was a excellent. I found my angel. After looking for a long time for a physician that cares, listens and takes into consideration the patient’s thoughts, is a gift from haven. I had been on meds for many years. I always hope to get off of meds. The mission was accomplished thanks to Dr. Riolo. Even though he’s young he’s very wise for his age. He’s gifted, talented and most important caring doctor. I wish him plenty of blessings in his new journey. God bless you and thanks for your kindness, caring and much more. Lots of blessings. May Hod be with you always. Don’t loose your carisma. Thank you. Maria Picard

I would highly recommend Dr Riolo to anyone needing pain management. He really listened to me and made a conscious effort to find the root of my pain through various tests and treatment modalities. He is very personable and I feel he gave me the best possible care. I truly benefited from his interventions. I have greatly improved pain management now. I give him a 5 star rating!

MRI showed herniated Disk in my Cervical Spine . My Spinal Surgeon said to me , "before he would preform ACDF (Arterial Cervical Discectomy and Fusion ) Surgery " he suggested I try (Epidural Spinal Injections), that could reduce inflammation of the Disk, sending pain down the neck into arm and elbow. The Surgeon told me the only one he would recommend to do the injections was Thomas Riolo. After the three injections and a few months passing by, I am 80% better and have back my quality of life.

Because of other health problems, Dr. Riolo was very cautious about my treatment for severe back pain. The treatment he chose worked! Dr. Riolo is very compassionate towards his patients, and he is very easy to talk to.

My first impression of Dr. Riolo when he walked into the room was that he is a friendly and energetic person. After my initial and two subsequent appointments I find him to be a knowledgeable and professional practitioner. He has taken the time to listen to me and explain his diagnosis. He sent me to PT for back and sciatic problems and I feel so much better. I recommend Dr. Riolo.
