Patient Reviews
Dec 01, 2022
Gives you so so much time. Very knowledgeable about his field. Wants to check up regularly. Shows compassion and empathy which in 2022 some healthcare professionals seem to have forgotten. Not a 5/5. 10/10. I can’t say enough good things about how he has impacted my overall health. From going to the University of Iowa then to Mayo Clinic and back to the UofI I can say without hesitation Dr Riggs has helped me more in 2 months than both those “best of the best hospitals” have done.
