Dr. Riesch was my Dr. for nearly 25 years. Outside of Our Lord I would not trust my life to anyone but him. He found a way always to take care of me immediately even without an appointment. He wasn't about the money. I could call him at his breakfast table. He would meet me at the office even when it was closed New Years Eve.
I love you Dr. Riesch. Thank you. The Lord be with you.

Dr.Riesch treated me after I broke my back in a sky diving accident in December, 1968. I was up and walking two weeks after I was admitted to the hospital. He was a great doctor with very good bedside manner. I last spoke to him in October to ask for his advice on my 97 yr. old Mother and he asked me to call him the next time I came back to Milwaukee. Sorry I missed him. Jerry Mohr, San Diego, CA

Dr. Riesch was my hero. He saved me many years ago when I was 19. I had complications from a ruptured appendix and could have died but due to his dedication and determination, he cured me with an innovative treatment approach.
More recently when my son was a medical student, he was privileged to be mentored by Dr. Riesch during his surgical rotation. My son mentioned my case to Dr. Riesch and amazingly he remembered me and recalled details of my case after 40 years.
Thank you Dr. Riesch. You will be missed by many grateful patients and their families.
