    Having a facial skin cancer IS scary. Dr. Rizzo gave me the confidence that she would do all that was possible to remove the cancer completely while preserving every bit of normal, healthy tissue. I felt, knew that she would have the patience and skill to be methodical and caring, using her experience and expertise.

    Called on 23rd for an appt spoke with Nicole I got an appt for the 29th, I was so excited except for 715am. I show up at 655, Nicole told me I wasn't in the computer & had no appt, I couldn't believe. She said she would ask the dr. to fit me in but after filling out the papers she told me no & I could reschedule in 3 weeks. I am just amazed at how patients are treated. It was a consult for a procedure I would have had to come for, the visit would have been 5mins. I left crying & will not return
