01/07/14 5 4 5 5 Dr. Rioux has always been so helpful to me, I've been seeing him since January 2013. His office fit me in extremely quickly after a scary visit to the ER. Dr. Rioux himself was extremely thorough in his consultation, ensuring that I knew a) what I was in for, b) his theories for diagnosis, and c) what the next step would be. He speaks in a very kind, sympathetic manner which is helpful when you're feeling anxious about your health. In general, he just seems like a very caring doctor who is passionate about his patients' wellness. The ONLY concern I would have is that once he was running about an hour behind, but as I understand it he had to fit in an emergency procedure that day, so that's not a big deal.

19/06/14 2 1 1 1 Know him on a personal and professional level. Very dismissive and uninterested in people and their worries. Would definitely see another random GI specialist over him.  Respond

04/04/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rioux is a fantastic specialist, he actually HAS a bedside manner that is so gentle and respectful, yet he's serious about helping. He's young so I wasn't expecting what I got, which was wisdom and honesty and knowledge. Yeah Kevin!!!!!!!!!  Respond

14/11/11 4 4 5 5 I saw dr Rioux while I was in the hospital for crohns disease. I saw him for 3 days straight under the guide of my regular GI, dr Kaplan. He was alot more accomodating than my regular dr, but not quite as knowledgeable. He took my concerns seriously, and didn't make me feel like a whiner or crazy. I would recommend him to anyone who has had problems with other drs pushing their concerns aside or treating them disrespectfully. You won't get that with dr. Rioux.  Respond

10/06/11 5 5 1 1 Everyone else seems to like him however i have severe gi problem in my colon, stomach and whole gi tract and i was having intestinal bleeding and he wouldnt see me even though i was already referred to him and seen him for a constult. So his nurse said to see my family doc and get another referral; so i did and i asked him for a colonoscopy and endoscopy to find out where the bleeding is and he said i was demanding. I got another gastro to do the procedure but he diagnosed me with SIBO and malabsorption as well as delayed gastric emptying and when i try to see him he gives me the run around tells me to get another referral. He may be nice to most but he has been horrible with me. Im guessing cause i have so many issues hed rather not take me as a patient cause i take alot of his time is the impression i got.  Respond

07/06/11 5 5 5 5 Saw Dr. Rioux in the ER as a consult and am currently trying to get a referral to see him as my gastro-guy. He so impressed me in the short time we had together, I had to follow through to find him again as I really want him to be my specialist. Really nice guy.  Respond

05/02/10 5 5 5 5 For me, Dr. Rioux was calm, gentle and very knowledgeable. He took me seriously & as I am a Logic Lunatic (and not even an engineer) he was very thorough and systematic. I feel like I am "in safe hands". I left his office with confidence in him & very secure.  Respond

07/12/09 5 5 5 5 Absolutly wonderful doctor. I was refered to Dr Rioux from a doctor in Reddeer. I was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, the doctor in Reddeer wanted to take out my large intestine, and I go to Dr. Rioux and he puts me on pill that will control the disease. He was so friendly helpful and cares so much about you as a patient. He doesnt rush you out the door and really listens to your concerns.  Respond
