Dr. Rizzo has proven to be one of the most qualified physicians in the greater Boston area. I started seeing her roughly 10 years ago. I was very ill for several years and Dr. Rizzo always accommodated me and my limitations. I am very glad that she moved her office down the hall and took the staff with her. I’m so thankful to be a patient of hers.

Dr. Rizzo was my doctor for many years (I've since moved out of the state) and during that time I found her to be extremely helpful and supportive through a number of challenging health situation that lasted multiple years. She was the one who finally helped diagnose one of my issues, fibromyalgia. She was extremely patient and always willing to investigate new possibilities. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, listening and open to new ideas physician.

Having Dr. Rizzo as my PCP for the last 6 years has lead me to write this review. I have found her to be cordial at best and quite unfriendly much of the time. She is never cheerful, seemingly overworked and in my judgment she is depressed. I give her a D- for bedside manner.

Was not helpful at all. Did not listen, and essentially treated me for something other than what I had. The nurses and staff were great, though.

Dr. Rizzo reminds me of my family doctor growing up. Kind , considerate and concerned about my well being. The staff is always upbeat and takes time to talk to you. I had been going to a big hospital clinic and there you were just a number and they never ever went that extra mile. So happy I moved to Sudbury and that Dr. Rizzo accepted me as a new patient.
