My appointment was scheduled with Dr Riesgo and I was eager to speak with him again prior to my surgery. After waiting more than an hour and a half he still wasn't available so a PA spoke with me instead. No one ever called to let me know he was running late. After setting everything up and waiting by the computer for an hour I called the office and was told to keep waiting; he was running late. I was frustrated at the lack of communication and never speaking with doctor.

My visit with Dr. Riesgo was fabulous. He took the time to explain everything in detail in language that I could not only understand but absorb! He answered my questions thoroughly and from my visit with him I felt extremely confident that he was the surgeon that I wanted operating on me. His expertise, warmth and caring came through during our appointment. There was another dr. who came in before Dr. Riesgo, saying he was part of his team. I did not have a similar experience. He brushed and rushed through the procedure using medical jargon, he did NOT say initially why he was seeing me in fact, it wasn't until he was leaving that he told me that Dr. Riesgo would be coming in to see me shortly. I did not care for his approach at all.

I am a physician. I was very impressed by everyone I dealt with . when I arrived there was a long wait posted and one if the staff behind desk 31 was so concerned she did everything to get me in as soon as possible. the nurse was very kind , bright and supportive. Dr Riesgo was phenomenal as was his fellow , Dr Abraham. He took his time with me and I never felt pressured to have surgery but given my intractable pain after a total knee replacement 11/18, it is the only hope I have . My quality of life is poor and Dr Riesgo is the expert on revisions so I put my trust in him and Cleveland clinic to give me my life back . The surgical coordinator Maricelle has been likewise so kind and attentive and she is helping facilitate what needs to be done prior to surgery on 7/22/20. My primary doctor is also with Cleveland clinic in Martin county ; Dr Demarkarian. I hope continuity of care and clear, timely correspondence continues so all the necessary steps are taken to increase post op success . I am worn out at this point as I've done everything I could do do alleviate pain. I am hopeful Dr Riesgo can hit a hone run .
