Dr. Riahi was very detail oriented, and not only dove in to the specifics of my treatment but educated me in a very brief, easy to understand and professional manner. He also had the uncanny ability to discern that I hadsome scientific knowledge and aptitude so he provided an even more in depth deep dive when explaining my condition in a very casual manner. I never felt like the patient, but a valued client and nothing less. The best doctor I have ever seen. Hands down.

Once I walked in the clinic, there was no wait at all. Granted, there was no one there during the day. But, I did not like how I was spoken to me. I understood that he was very informative, and educational,but he did not ask for my concerns of what I wanted. The time I saw him was very short, and seemed rush. Which I’m not sure why I was being rushed, knowing that I was literally the only patient there.
