The most amazing visit to a doctor's office. I got more than I hoped for. I thought I would need surgery and money I don't have, but he took 20 minutes to erase 2 years of pain.

Dr. Re is one of those doctors that will interrupt you constantly but can't stand even the hint of an interruption. He'll just talk over you if you have a question, and was definitely in a rush to get me out the door. His bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired . He didn't even examine me -- I never even took off my coat! Just talked at me and told me I need surgery. The ego was a bit much for me. I'd rather go somewhere they actually examine me and can stand their patients asking basic questions.

Even though they are very busy, everyone you deal with is friendly, smiling, courteous and helpful. It was one of my best first-time visits to a doctor in New York City. Dr. Re is wonderful and the staff are too.

very thorough visit and explained my diagnosis very well. When explaining my issue, Dr. Re referred to my xray and anatomy chart on his office wall. Dr. re knows about alternative medicines which is a plus in my book.

I have seen Dr. Re before and other doctors at Riverside Orthopaedics. Dr. Re is superb, as are the others and it is well-run office. Long waits are very rare and the staff is responsive and efficient. Every doctor’s office should be like this.

Dr. Re is very intelligent and explains why everything is wrong/the way it is. He answered all of my questions, was very personable. I would just say it felt a bit rushed once he actually came into the room. I didn't mind because I had to make it to work that day.

Waited 40 minutes at reception and another 25 in the patient room. Dr. Re seemed in a rush to get through our appointment and did not ask if I had any questions regarding my follow up.

Literally the best experience I've had from start to finish at a medical appointment of any kind. Really at any appointment of any kind. I told them they were role-modeling for other offices. It so simple but so well executed. Ali and Dr. Re were amazing, answering all my questions, explaining everything to me in a way I could understand but with regard as if I were a colleague - and the best part, Dr Re kept saying surgery is the last resort, and emphasized that. For not one second did I feel rushed. And I never had to wait, appointment on time, getting xrays, ultrasounds, the results...everything was immediate. The tightest run ship around. I can only speak for Ali and Dr Re but I can't think of a single thing I would improve. Super impressed. I'd send my parents to see Dr Re - can't think of higher praise than that.

Dr. Re was pleasant. He explained clearly what was causing my knee pain. He prescribed physical therapy first but probably orthoscopy down the road. I would recommend him highly.
