My experience was a solid "10"! The staff is friendly, empathetic, humorous and understanding. I was never made to feel silly for any questions or concerns I may have had. The environment is like a day spa; relaxing and very female focused. Doctor Riolo herslef was nothing short of amazing. She listened, counseled and guided in decisions and expectations. I would recommend anyone I know and love to this facility for sure.

Patient

Dr. Riolo is unlike any other medical doctor. She is truly the marriage of art and science to perfection. She listened so carefully to what my goals were for my long journey of weight loss and what I could achieve for my own real situation. I'm so grateful for her gifts that she was able to design and assist with the changes that allowed me a body I didn't even have when I was 20 years old, now at 47. I only have this one body and I'm so glad I trusted it to a gifted surgeon at her craft.

This is my second breast augmentation with Dr. Riolo, and both times have been absolutely amazing. Whenever I had any doubts, or would change my mind, she was always willing to listen and give me her honest advice. I love her and the stuff, and my new boobs.

I had breast cancer and after surgery and radiation I was in need of reconstructive plastic surgery on my breasts. I wish I had never let Dr. Riolo do my surgery. My breast are horrible. One breast is saggy and the breast which had cancer has a big dent and is hard as a rock...Dr. Riolo did not follow through with the procedure of filling my breast with excess tissue that had been removed following my breast cancer surgery. Terrible job...

Feb 28, 2018

Patient

I have had the greatest experience by far with Dr. Riolo and her staff. As a mom of littles and trying to find the right one to make me feel like me again after lots of breastfeeding, I know I finally came to the right one. Honestly, I did four consults before I came to her. I knew from the moment she spoke with me, I was in great hands with to do my breast augmentation. Everything about her was just what I needed to feel confident in the procedure and after. Love her and her staff!

Feb 14, 2018

Patient

Dr. Riolo and her staff were amazing. I was nervous about having the process done again. They were kind and spent quality time with me each visit to make sure I understood the process, changes and treatment. They treated my husband and I like family. It was remarkable.

I visited other Plastic & Reconstructive doctors and was not happy with my visit. I am so glad I went with Dr. Riolo. All my questions were answered, the information provided was clear and accurate.

Dr. Riolo was informative and encouraging. Her office staff was polite, courteous, and friendly. Everything went like clockwork. This was a huge relief to me.

Patient

I have had 2 surgeries with Dr Riolo ( 10 years apart). Both of my procedures had amazing results. Dr. RIolo is easy to talk to and listens to patient concerns. Each surgery had its own difficulties but I also felt completely taken care of and in good hands. The office staff are so kind. They answer every phone call and email no matter how small the question or concern is. They have become new friends.

Apr 20, 2017

Patient

Dr. Riolo took the time necessary to answer all of my questions and concerns. Her answers were very thorough and complete.

I had been to other doctors to discuss similar procedures, but left feeling like the doctors did not have my best interests in mind.

Patient

Dr. Riolo literally changed my self esteem and body image issue's through having surgery from her. I had 2 "botched" surgeries previously to finding her and getting a consult. I knew right away from our interaction in her office that she would be able to address my core issues that had occurred leaving me disfigured. Dr. Riolo is very clear about what she can offer, what is most realistic and helpful to one as a patient, and has an excellent bedside manner. I cannot apppl...

Dr. Kaye Riolo is amazing! Her staff and her made me comfortable and answered all my questions at the consult. I had told them the look I wanted to achieve which is a natural full C or DD, nothing too obvious to where people wouldn't automatically know I had a BA. They were very very honest on giving their opinions when I tried on sizers. They said if I went with anything bigger than 500cc I would look top heavy and I completely agreed, that's not what I wanted. I ended u...

I had a receding hairline that held me back from a lot of things in life, specifically my confidence. I looked into a lot of options (all out of town), not knowing the Doctor who would help me was 15 minutes away from me.

I definitely recommend anyone and everyone having any issues with confidence because of male hair loss to at least come in and check her out. The whole of...
