Anthony A. Rieder, MD

Board Certified Otolaryngologist and Sleep Physician

Philosophy of Care

“I want every one of the patients I see to fully understand what their diagnosis means, and why I think their treatment plan is right for them. I enjoy spending time getting to know my patients as individuals and how I can best serve them. The same treatment is not always the right treatment, even if it is the same general problem or condition. You need to know your patients as people and not think of them as just another diagnosis or a reason for a test or some surgical procedure.”
