We arrived about 20 min early and were taken into an exam room even before our appointment time. The assistants and staff were very efficient with X-rays and Dr Rieger made my daughter and I more comfortable with his humor. He addressed our concerns and explained her diagnosis. Luckily, my child does not require further care, but I would definitely recommend them and visit them again if we have any future orthopedic needs.

My son, who has special needs, has been a patient of Dr. Rieger’s for over 18 years. Dr. Rieger has taken very good care of my son’s orthopedic needs during this time , always listening to my concerns and offers a sensible treatment approach over the years that has resulted in great outcomes. Today’s visit was no exception- once again, Dr. Reiger took his time in examining my son with great bedside manner, evaluating and recommending an ongoing orthopedic plan that makes good sense. I am grateful for Dr. Rieger and consider him an important member of my son’s medical team.

Dr. D’agostini was very professional in her bedside manner and clearly knew what she was doing. I took my son in after he did a backflip and fell on his arm. His arm looked fine (I honestly thought he was faking it initially) but he would cry every time he had to move it. I took him in and she felt his arm and realized he had “nursemaid’s elbow”. Popped it right back into place in 2 seconds. Of course my son cried for a little, but he was perfectly fine a few minutes later. Bonus points because this office took us in on short notice absolutely last minute. Thanks again D’agostini and the Pediatric Orthopedic Center team!

We always have a great experience with Dr. Reiger. Great bed side manner. Never left waiting past our scheduled appointment time. Dr. Reiger sees my son every 6 months for monitoring of his scoliosis and he is my son's favorite doctor. He is conservative and not an alarmist. I feel like my son is well monitored and well cared for. Totally worth the 30 minute drive!

The staff was lovely, they were efficient and friendly and didn’t take long to get me back. When we got back to Dr. Rieger, it took him less than 10 minutes to diagnose me, and he clearly knew what was wrong. He was dead on with my symptoms and prescribed an anti-inflammatory for my synovitis. Overall, my experience at Dr. Rieger’s office was phenomenal and would 100% recommend.

Dr. Rieger is the ONLY doctor that we trust with our son's club foot care!He is Ponsetti certified and knows how to properly care for a club foot. He has years of knowledge and experiance. He has silly dad jokes & may seem serious at 1st but he is kind & will patiently answer all your questions. And boyyyy did we ask him questions, he never seemed annoyed with us & always stayed patience despite us asking the same questions twice as worried & concerned parents.Dr. Rieger has been our saving grace! We went to 2 different docs & both messed up our son's foot care. Dr. Rieger set us in the right direction.If you are a parent with a club foot child do not hesitate to see Dr. Rieger!Parking on premises. Can get fitted & order foot braces right in the office!!P.S. the wait was never horrible for us like some reviews state. We have had a great experiance with the other office staff as well. Kind, patient, and caring staff.

Dr. Lin was amazing. After thoroughly listening to my son's and my explanation of what was going on and checking my son's symptoms, he gave us a diagnosis complete with a full explanation for me and then explained it further for my son (11) to be sure he completely understood what caused the issue, how the suggested brace would help, and what to expect going forwardWe both left the office feeling very relieved and comfortable with what we were told.

Everyone was nice and was very children friendly, which is good but rare, our nurse Jennifer and Dr. D'Agostini explained exactly what they were going to do directly to my daughter so there were no surprises for her. While it is a pretty far drive for me, I would definitely go again and I would definitely recommend for anyone that has small children.

I’ve taken my son to see Dr. Friedman a few times now and every time is a great experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful and there’s never really much of a wait to be seen. Dr. Friedman’s bedside manner is also great as she takes the time listen to concerns and thoroughly explain findings and treatment plans.

Just left Dr. Friedman’s office and so happy I did. She caught a fracture on my sons X-ray that the ED missed and casted him right away. So relieved I went for a second opinion and that she did not hesitate to take the proper intervention.

Visited for a 2nd opinion after an awful experience with the first doctor we saw. Dr. Friedman was amazing. She took time to talk to my son, ask him questions and examine him thoroughly. She fitted him for a more appropriate higher quality brace and ensured we had everything we needed for school accommodations. She didn't rush us at all and was very kind. Highly recommend!

My 9-yr old recently broke a finger and I felt so lucky to have found Dr.Strassberg to guide me through my first serious injury as a parent. He was knowledgeable, kind, patient, trustworthy, good with my son, and explained everything. He listened to our concerns and considered them.We visited him at both his locations and both had clean rooms and attentive staff.My son is now healed , without surgery.Everything I could have ever wanted and expected from great healthcare was provided by Dr.Strassberg.
