Dr. Riew was very professional and took much time answering all of my questions and [concerns] during my initial consultation. He showed me the x-rays of my neck and explained why my condition (spinal stenosis) was impacting my ability to walk (I was dragging my left leg). I was very pleased with the way [he] explained things simply, so I could understand my condition, as well as the compassion and care he took to make me feel at ease. I had surgery on January 6, 2016, and I highly recommend Dr. Riew!

Dr. Riew is absolutely phenomenal. You can tell right away why he is the best in the world. Yes, he is knowledgeable, but he is poised, practiced, articulate, has perfect speed and comfort when delivering bad news. He just makes you feel like you couldn’t imagine using another doctor/surgeon, and I haven’t even had surgery yet. Then, there is his staff who are not only, caring, smart, fun, but also interesting…

Dr. Dan Riew, MD, is absolutely the best Cervical Spine Surgeon. I traveled from Illinois to New York, June 2016, for a second Cervical Spine surgery without any hesitation. He was my surgeon in 2005, and I wouldn’t even consider any other spine surgeon as long as he’s available to do surgery. He is extremely intelligent, skilled, professional, compassionate, kind & dedicated. He truly cares about his patients. He’s a rare find these days.
