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.

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.

I have been in pain since my hip surgery over a year ago and I am excited about having this surgery.
