    Very good. I salute him and the staff that work with him. Congratulations and thank you so much.

    Our doctor is very good. He is so much dedicated and concern to me. He listens too to what I am saying concerning my health.

    Dr. Riessen allowed me to figure out what weight management options would likely made best for me. I'm not sure I'd recommend a teaching clinic to anyone else. It takes a long time for a visit because of the steps they have to go through.

    CP went through all my concerns and was very thorough.

    Great partners - work hand in hand w/each other - both great doctors. So glad I switched.

    He and all staff been very respectful and caring of my mom. He truly has lengthened the quality of her life as much as possible and we are appreciative.

    Dr. Riessen and fellows and MA's have always been totally respectful and thorough. Sometimes Dr. Riessen can talk over people's head's because he is so bright and thorough but he always comes back with the dummied down version.

    Because it is a teaching hospital it takes twice as long for a visit because you see a resident or student first and then again with both doctors. It just takes too much of the day.

    They were running way behind the schedule. Dr. Riessen is a very good doctor specializing in internal medicine but because I am only on one prescription for cholesterol I'm thinking of trying to find a general practitioner that I can see for general health concerns.

    Excellent staff and doctor.

    I wanted to change a prescription. Doctor discussed all the options. Also filled out state driving competency form and returned promptly to DMV.

    The hard part is the wait time.

    Experienced on Jun 27, 2019

    Very good provider.

    Experienced on Jun 19, 2019

    Dr. Riessen, in addition to clearly being smart, articulate, thorough, and thoughtful is gifted in explaining his medical decision-making. His process of care involves talking through a broad spectrum of disease processes and possible diagnoses that he then weighs and presents with comparative likelihood. He subsequently arrives at a diagnosis and then presents a care plan taking into consideration the values and preferences of his patient. This represents high-quality patient centered care.

    Overall visit went OK.. Although my concerns were over diabetic problems. Dr. Riessen referred us to diabetic educator.
