It's Never Too Late! - Tampa, FL

Dr. Rieger and his staff were amazing from the moment I walked in the door. My questions were answered and Dr. Rieger made me feel totally comfortable. At 63 I wondered if he felt I was too old but he assured me that I was not! This is something I had wanted my entire adult life so I was thrilled to move forward. My preop care was unsurpassed, the surgery flawless and the end result everything and more than I expected. Dr. Rieger is not only a skilled surgeon he is also one of the kindest and most caring physicians I have ever met. I highly recommend him! ore than I expected! Dr. Rieger is not only a skilked surgeon, he is one of the most caring and kind man I have ever met

5 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation With Dr. Rieger - Tampa, FL

He earned it! I am 5 weeks post-op breast augmentation by Dr. Rieger and I can't put into words how thrilled I am with the results! I tend to be a bit more conservative than what I think most might be and have put this off for years because of my fear of being disproportionate. I am petite and after meeting with multiple surgeons I wondered if I would ever find someone I could trust was on the same page. After speaking with him and researching him thoroughly I felt comfortable moving forward. He was so receptive to my thoughts and feelings regarding what I wanted the outcome to be. I got his name from a woman I have worked with for almost 2 years and never knew she had implants, and let me add that she is no where as conservative as I. Hers are quite a bit larger but natural looking. The point is that Dr. Rieger has that special touch to make whatever YOU want a reality! What sold me on Dr. Rieger though is his attention to detail and how meticulous he is. I could tell in the way he spoke to me as well through the feelings of many other women once I researched him. I am a cardiac registered nurse and I don't mess around with my health and I knew this man wouldn't either. Not one other surgeon I met with takes the precautions Dr. Rieger does. Like I said before, I am absolutely thrilled with my results and when I look at myself in the mirror I honestly can't think of anything that I would change, not one little detail and let me tell you THAT IS A GREAT FEELING!

Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty & Bilateral Turbinate Reduction - Tampa, FL

Dr. Rieger makes you feel at ease from the minute you meet him. He takes his time explaining the procedure to you and gets beautiful results. All of the nurses at the Surgery Center speak so highly of him and his work. I can't wait to see my results.

Excellent - Tampa, FL

Dr. Reiger not only did an amazing job on my breast augmentation, but he CARES! This is something we often miss in MD's. He not only wanted to know what surgery I wanted done, but he was also concerned with how I felt about each step of the process. He answered all my questions in depth. I also do not remember waiting for him ever. In fact, often times I was placed in a room to meet with him before my appt time. I have also found that during this process you not only want a caring doctor, but a caring staff as well. Dr. Reiger has chosen a staff that is empathetic and understanding and will go out of their way to ensure you are satisfied with the entire process. I couldn't have picked a better doctor.

Thoroughly Professional and Totally Personal - Tampa, FL

Of course the most important quality in a surgeon is technical skill and competence.However,when undergoing any cosmetic treatment, a sense of total trust and confidence is also crucial. Dr. Rieger epitomizes both. Procedures are explained and options thoroughly discussed but he also listens to and empathizes with his patients' concerns. I was particularly impressed with the reaction of the nurses at the surgery center, one of whom volunteered that Dr. Rieger was the only surgeon she would ever choose were she to have any cosmetic procedure, based not only on his skill and manner, but on his absolute perfectionism in the operating theatre. The office staff and the whole environment is very warm and caring. You should choose a surgeon for his technical skill, but choose a doctor for his gentle and caring manner; in Dr. Rieger you get the whole package. He is both a gentle man and a true gentleman.

One Stop Doctor - Tamp, FL

Dr. Rieger has performed Breast Augmentation numerous times for the women in our family. He listens to what you want and is very honest about what kind of results you can expect. I also had him do Lipo which was a great success. There is no reason to shop doctors because he is the best at what he does.

Outstanding Doctor, Person and Practice: Invest in Yourself and Feel Confident You Have Made the Right Decision - Tampa, FL

I have seen Dr Rieger 3 times each time with the same fantastic results and satisfaction. I am always impressed at his professionalism and up to date knowledge in his field and others. I am a very forward person and I always appreciate honesty and when people say "listen I will not do this because I do not want YOU to be unhappy". I have placed my trust in him and his great team of associates and never been let down. The first time I saw him I was 18 and had a breast aug and as my body has changed over the years I become very active and involved in fitness and was ready for a new professional yet sexy look to fit my new body. I am the happiest yet! Please please remember this is an investment in yourself!! The funds required are broken down in many categories. His prices are very competitive with comparable doctors but you get what you pay for and I promise he will not let you down.

Breast Implant Capsulectomy (Removal and Replacement) with Areola Lift. - Tampa, FL

Dr Rieger is the best! I felt very comfortable with his credentials and his professional manner. I had silicone implants 30 years ago when I was 21 which had ruptured. He was very kind and addressed all of my concerns and explained my options. When I decided on removing and replacing the implants, he fully explained the procedure. Surgery was performed at the Tampa Bay Surgical Center which felt so much safer than some doctors who do surgery in office. Dr Rieger's staff and his follow-up care is superb. My results are fabulous and look so natural. You will not find a better surgeon!

Updated on 29 Oct 2011:Dr. Rieger is the most kindest and respectful dr. I have ever met. He never made me feel rushed and made me feel so comfortable. He is very easy to get a hold of after hours, and he is an awsome dr. I am extremely happy with my results so far. I will definitely be returning for my next procedure.

One Week Post Surgery - Tampa

Believe me he has a great reputation. He listens to his patients and then tells you what he thinks. What ever he thought I needed and didn't need was what was done. I trust him completely. He is a family man and I like that too.
