Dr. Riela has retired

His last day in the office was December 28th of 2017.

We are so happy for him and his wonderful wife Marlene. Dr. Riela began his career in medicine in 1979 in North Carolina.  He has served Texas Child Neurology and all across the metroplex collectively for over 27 years.  His wife Marlene has been working here at TCN for 12 years and often travels with Dr. Riela from hospital to hospital in the evenings or weekends as he cares for others.  They will both truly be missed by so many! 

2018 will start out with new adventures for the Riela’s. They plan to jump right into travel, recreation, and enjoying time with their beautiful grandchildren. 

If you have been blessed by your child being a patient of Dr. Riela’s you know his desire is only for the highest care moving forward for your family.  We have several doctors here that will be able to continue that exemplary care. 

Please feel free to review our doctors on this site to get an idea of whom you would like to take over your child’s care.  If you would choose to go outside our office for continued care we will be happy to provide your child’s medical records.

****If you would like to say thank you to Dr. Riela please feel free to leave a note on our Facebook wall or send him a card here at the office.  Thanks again for choosing Texas Child Neurology!

My son has been seeing Dr. Riela now for 3 years. My son’s health is his first concern. He is very patient and listens to all my concerns and takes the time to explain everything completely to myself and my son. The thing I like the most about Dr. Riela is that the majority of his questions are directed towards my son. It makes my son feel important and empowered as a young patient.
