Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Brian Riff is the best GI I have ever seen. Although the wait time was a bit long when it was my turn to be seen, he spoke with me for over an hour. He was extremely caring and even referred me to other specialists that could help with my condition. He set up a detailed patient plan for me and gave me a print out to follow. He is extremely knowledgeable about more recent GI related diseases. I was very impressed with him. I would highly recommend him to others. Please Note: There is another Dr. Riff as well in the same clinic, so just make sure to ask for Dr. Brian Riff. He is the younger Dr. Riff. I have not been treated by the other Dr. Riff, so I can't comment but he was very friendly in passing.
