When asked about his approach to patient care Dr. Rigby explains “my approach to patient care entails listening to the patient, explaining what needs to be done, and involving then in the final decision of what treatment is to be performed.” In his spare time, Dr. Rigby enjoys outdoor activities, sports and spending time with his family.
