Love Dr. Riddell. There's a reason my entire family sees him!
New Orleans, LA |
Great, patient Dr. that is compassionate and understanding. Hard to get an appointment but that is because he is great at what he does.
in Mandeville LA |
Dr. Riddell is personable, listens, explains and goes the extra mile for his patients. You may have to wait, but it's because he does listen and explains everything to his patients...a good dr may be on time, but a great dr may be a little late...should you have to wait, he is worth it your patience. My husband has several health problems, so I am speaking for him...he thinks Dr. Riddell is one of the VERY BEST.
