Verified Patient Reviews
the visit was great, Dr Rider and his assistant answered all my questions and took care of my immediate needs promptly.
This visit allowed me find ways to treat symptoms I was experiencing ( i.e. constipation, pain etc) however, it gets frustrating when doctors ignore the fact that you've been suppressing/"treating" these symptoms for 10 years already. I want to know the underlying cause and how to BECOME better not just "feel" better.
Dr. Rider is kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and clearly experienced. The office staff was also kind and helpful.
Dr. Rider is great! I would highly recommend anyone to visit him. He LISTENS to your issues and doesn't jump to diagnosing right away. Have really enjoyed visiting with him.
Felt very comfortable with him and his professionalism. He took as much time as needed to speak wth me.
Very professional and friendly, patient in explaining his logic and recommended actions
Listened intently to my symptoms but prescribed me two medications even though he admitted he was not sure what condition I had. His quickness to prescribe medication without fully pinpointing my issue was a major concern and main reason why I sought out a different gastroenterologist.
he was nice, seemed caring, asked me alot of questions seemed to actually take his time and think over things. i have a follow up soon. the view from his office is awesome btw it helps if you have white coat syndrome like i do.
