– Anja B.
“About 14 years ago, I had my first back surgery. I saw four surgeons before settling on one as I was as petrified to undergo an operation on my spine, which could permanently leave me paralyzed. On the 4th surgeon, I found one I was immediately comfortable. Shortly after relocating to the Capital Region, I began having some significant problems. I went to urgent care and got scheduled by the above provider Dr. Riccio. I was afraid that I was going to spend months searching again for a surgeon. I would feel a comfort level. He immediately made me comfortable from my very first appointment to today's *second post-op* appointment. I would recommend him to anyone. He is caring, knowledgeable, and in no way did I ever once feel like just another name on a piece of paper. If I could give him a billion stars, I honestly would.”

“I took my son for an evaluation for a baseball injury. Dr. Tetreault was great! He answered all of our questions, showed me on the diagram what area he was referring to and didn’t seem put off for me asking so many questions. My son asked him about the x-ray, and he took the time out to show him on the computer exactly what he explained in the room. Dr. Tetreault is through with everything.
