I was told after my appointment with the nurse and the PA that if I wanted to see the doctor I would have to wait another hour. My leg was swollen and I was having a lot of trouble walking and they gave me some anti-inflammatory and some exercises. They never gave me any type of diagnosis. Never checked my temperature to see if I had an infection. And they didn't think even though I couldn't walk and it was swollen and I needed an MRI

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.
