going to Cleveland Clinic for my hip surgery, was on of the best decisions my wife and I made. Doctor Riesgo is an excellent and skilled surgeon with a great "bedside" manner who took the worries out of my visit. He and his staff are true professionals with a sensitive side that made this a simple event. My hat is off to the staff and support teams at Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. took a great deal of time with me, reading past four years worth of records, came up with a probable diagnosis, which was exactly what i expected, and said he would consult rheumatologist for me and we set up appointment. I drove 2 hours to get there and it was well worth it.

Dr Riesgo is a wonderful doctor who cares about his patients. He listens to your issues and solved mine that many others failed. Your telephone operators are terrible, the message rarely gets resolved or a call back. Dr Riesgo made my appointment easy by taking care of it himself.

Every one who I encountered at the Cleveland clinic was extremely Friendly and courteous.

Dr. Riesgo's incredible balance of engineering, science and patient comfort put me at ease in my decision to proceed with a total knee revision.

Reviewed on Jul 12, 2018

The Doctor never actually appeared or explained why he didn't. He sent a nurse who never said he wasn't a M.D. The nurse manipulated a leg and gave bad instructions for exercise that left me -the following 5 days - a virtual invalid, unable to walk and in pain. IT WAS THE WORST DOCTOR EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD IN MY 86 YEARS!!!

Overall good experience. When I called the doctor's office with a question the nurse would call back but not with an answer or a good time for me to reach him. So we spent a week playing phone tag.

Excellent visit but the doctor prescribed a drug for me and said it was sent to my CVS but when I got to CVS, no prescription was sent in. Thank god for CVS as they took my doctors business card and called the office which took them almost 15 minutes to actually speak to someone and the end I left and had to return because the office said they had to research it and call CVS back. They did call back but it was 4hrs after CVS calling them.

Doctor nor his staff directed me after my visit. I had ask if I could just walk out and it was at that time they told me to see the person at the check out desk.
