Dr. Risse is a gifted practitioner. We adore and respect her.
Dr Risse is an incredible doctor who has built great relationships with our family. She is responsive, knowledgeable, funny and caring.
Excellent! We were taken care of with kindness and quickly. I especially liked that you have a doctor on staff who can do casts for breaks so that we didn´t have to go to another doctor/hospital. Superb!
Excellent experience overall!

Dr. Risse is a great pediatrician.
We always look forward to see Dr. Risse -- she always celebrates our children where they are and helps them to move onward to the next developmental stages!
We LOVE Dr. Risse and only wished she were in the office more so we could get into see her more easily.
Excellent service from start to finish.
Dr. Risse is hands down the best provider we see or have ever seen. She is knowledgeable, sensitive, genuine, and helpful. She is all a pediatrician is supposed to be!
Dr. Risse & Dr. Shampox are the best!
I wish I could find a care provider for myself that operated similarly to Drs Risse, Nyweide, and Jackson. They are all stellar!
Helpful to have the doctor talking about the use of technology would be helpful to have the doctor say what is recommended for screen time for this age group and why.
excellent provider really liked her professionalism and her explainations
We love the care Dr. Risse gives our daughter. She gives us excellent and sound advice in a way we can understand.
We have had nothing but great experiences w/Dr. Risse!
I look forward to visits with dr. risse b/c she makes coming to the doctor for a check up a positive experience, my kids always listen to what she has to say and take it to heart. She´s a great doc and I hope that she knows how honored we are to have such a great positive health advocate in our lives!
Dr. Risse is the best. as the parent of a child with chronic illness Dr. Risse offers something invaluable. she´s my partner on the journey. I trust her completely to guide me, support me, take over when necessary, and to always, always, care about my whole family´s wellbeing. where would we be without her?
