I went to Dr. Riefkohl for allergy testing and chronic sinus issues. He was super sensitive to my concerns and fear of surgery. I never felt pressured to enter into any procedure or protocol. He simply presented me with options and allowed me to make the choice that was best for me.

Dr. Riefkohl is the most caring doctor I've ever seen in any specialty. He truly cares about me as a person - I wasn't just another appointment. I have a condition that is not easily treated and he tried many different treatments until he found one that worked. He never seemed annoyed when I didn't respond well to a treatment like I've experienced with other doctors. He always has a smile on his face and seems to really love what he does. I trust him completely.

Dr Riefkohl is a very caring doctor. He took the time to ask questions and answered all my questions. He made sure that I understood what my problem was. I thought I had sinusitis. After months of failed treatment with antibiotics it turned out I had acid reflux. Hard to believe but he was right.
