Every day in dermatology is different, even with patients that I have been seeing for over 15 years. They come in and I make them feel and look better and it makes a world of difference in their lives.

I have been seeing Dr Riordan for about 3 years for a variety of skin issues and I could not be happier with her. She is very personable and knowledgeable. She is never pushy and I always feel great when I leave her office.

She is as good as I have ever experienced as a Doctor and Dermatologist. I have lots of sun damage issues. She has always taken the necessary time to treat every problem and to listen to me. She is competent, warm and friendly. I feel safe having her as my dermatologist.

Dr Riordan is a good doctor. Her front desk staff can be very difficult to deal with. They can be short and rude with patients. I don't take any trouble they toss my way. Dr Riordan has been very helpful to my whole family.

I can't even begin to say how grateful I am to have Dr. Riordan in my life. She has treated me several times for skin cancer, including a melanoma. She will be forever in my life and I couldn't ask for a better dermatologist. She is very thorough and truly compassionate. That is what I love about her. She saved my life so I will be forever grateful to her.

Dr. Riordan takes the time to sit down and devise an intimate and personalized plan for each and every one of her patients. Unlike some other doctors, she attacks the acne from multiple fronts, whether that is prescribing medicine or suggesting lifestyle changes. If the initial regimen does not work, she goes back, studies the past, and creates a newer and better plan. All in all, I would not see any dermatologist besides Dr. Riordan.

Good check-up and results. Had to wait an hour to see the doctor so that was the only negative.

This was my first visit and aside from filling out numerous dreaded forms everything was fine. Dr. Riordan and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would certainly return.

I would recommend Dr. Riordan in heartbeat. She and her staff are amazing to work. My previous dermatologist had removed a mole that I was concern about, which I had to tell her to do it, because she wasn't going to, she just say we keep an eye on it. Ended up that I had abnormal cells and had to go back in to get more of the surrounding tissue removed. Needless to say, she did a hack job on my arm and the scar is awful. There was another spot on my leg that I was concerned about and the same doctor, told me that there is nothing wrong and to keep an eye on it. I didn't feel right about the decisions or the work this doctor had done, so I was referred to Dr. Riordan. At this point, I was so upset and gun shy about having anything else done or looked at by anyone. Dr. Riordan made me feel so comfortable and assured me that everything will be ok and it was. She recommend someone that could remove the ugly scar on my arm and the spot on my leg ended up being skin cancer, but was treatable. She is very thorough and took the time to explain everything she was going to do or will do. I am very pleased and wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you Dr. Riordan for helping me!!!!
