||5/5/12||5||4||5||5||This physician is a superb historian. He has a truly formidable knowledge of his specialty and the natural/injurious sequelae which relate thereto and derive therefrom. He takes the time in dictation to produce an accurate and thoughtfully considered report. He is patient and through in the examination room. He is extremely intelligent, and projects his intellect in a matter of fact and down to earth way. I am told he possesses superb hands and formidable concentration and focus in the OR. And despite all of the foregoing, he projects little to none of the impenetrable ego of many neurosurgical specialists. I am so very thankful to have the good fortune to have come under his care, and perhaps one day, so also his knife.||Respond|

Dr. Riedel gave my wife her life back. Nothing less. She had a poor job of spinal laminectomy and fusion done two years ago by another doctor. Immediately after this previous surgery, and continuing for two years, she suffered severe leg pain and spasms from the resulting radiculopathy. Three days ago Dr. Riedel operated on her, removing all the old hardware and completely rebuilding her spine. I can tell you my wife woke up from that surgery a different woman. The pain and spasms were not just reduced, THEY WERE GONE. What an excellent surgeon, how glad we are to have found him. Add to this his willingness to take on somebody else's botched job. (And he's a nice guy, too!!) UNHESITATINGLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
