    How was your appointment with Dr. Riker?

    Aug 10, 2018
    I have been a patient of Dr Riker for about 20 years. I moved out of state 12 years ago but continue to return to see her twice a year. In my almost 71 years I have never had a physician even approach her level of care and skill. She is nit just a doctor but a true caring healer.
