"One of the things I love about veterinary medicine is that it offers the challenge of constant change.
In keeping up with what is new in the field, I've always been an enthusiastic participant in continuing
medical education.  I've attended seminars in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, parasitic disease, pain management, feline geriatric medicine, gastric dilatation/volvulus treatment, neurology, ophthalmology and lameness.  Though the practioner gets older and more experienced, the knowledge should stay young."

Dr. Riedl and his wife Barb have two children, two cats and two dogs.  His practice interests encompass a wide range of family practice medicine and surgery.  Outside of professional life, Dr. Riedl is an auto racing fan, a history buff, an outdoor enthusiast and plays trumpet in the jazz band, Hasband.
