After doing some research and asking my friends and family in the area, Dr. Riefkohl was highly recommended to me. I was very impressed with his ability to listen to my situation and symptoms and then he addressed possible tests and solutions. He explained what he was doing and why and made sure I was comfortable with the process. The staff was very pleasant and professional and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

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.
