    Dr. Riggan performed my previous Carpal Tunnel surgery. I began having problems with my shoulder and was concerned that something may be going on.There were a number of "issues" going on with my shoulder and it was going to require surgery. I have daughter with special needs that is TOTAL care and was concerned about having the surgery. He went over the pros and cons with me. Due to my complete trust in Dr. Riggan from my previous surgery, I agreed to have it done. It has been a much more positive experience than I expected (many people had told me it was a very painful and difficult surgery). He listened to my concerns and as a Health Professional, I really appreciated that.

    I have known *Dr. Riggan for many years. He did my CTS and knows/cares about the fact I have a child with special needs that needs total care. He is doing his best to keep me being able to do that! Now I am facing shoulder surgery and would not trust anyone else. He is the best!

    In the past 11 years, Dr. Riggan has performed surgery on my foot and knee. He has always took his time to answer questions, explain procedures and gave excellent care. I wish all doctors had his bed-side manner and surgical skills.
