Never have met a more sincere Dr.

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 .

Reviewed on Dec 16, 2019

I was on time for my appointment but had to wait over 1hour and 45 min. for the dr to see me. the previous visit took over an hour to see the dr.

Reviewed on Dec 12, 2019

I saw Dr. Riesgo in December and he told me he would not be able to do my surgery until after Feb 2020 because he knew his schedule would be full until then. Later when I went to schedule my surgery, I was not able to get on his calendar until May 2020. I will wait because I think Dr. Riesgo is the best surgeon available to do my surgery. But, he should know when meeting his patients that it would be almost a half a year until he would be able to do their surgery - especially if treatments would be possible to help the patient's quality of life while awaiting surgery. I am pretty much bed ridden and pray every day that I will get a call that there has been a cancellation or that Dr Riesgo has obtained additional surgery time so my surgery can be updated.

Reviewed on Dec 11, 2019

I don't live in Weston but in Tampa Bay Area. I have seen three ortho surgeons and none of them had a plan or have ever done this type of surgery before. Dr. Riesgo reviewed my documentation from my prior surgery and notes from visits and had a plan and we scheduled a surgery date. I have been in pain since my hip surgery over a year ago and I am excited about having this surgery.

Dr Riesgo is a talented "mechanic" with a sole focus of the surgical site and repair. He seems fond of saying "I don't know" in issues related to the surgery.
