My visits to Dr Lizarraga have always been beneficial and I believe my diabetes is being controlled with the medications he has prescribed. He is always kind and offers good advice. My weight has dropped 17 pounds in the last year. He listens and does not appear rushed or preoccupied with anything other than discussing or tending to my current health needs.

If you're looking for a down to earth doctor with a great personality and bedside manner then Dr. Lizarraga is your man! He truly cares about your personal well being, striving to get to the root of the cause versus masking symptoms. He's professional, courteous, attentive, knowledgeable and many more mind blowing adjectives I just can't think of right now. The Frist Clinic has quite an asset with him as one of their Internal Med MD's, he truly rocks! - Melissa Myers

My visits to Dr. Lizarraga are always positive. He is patient, listens to me, and never seems to rush to get to his next patient. I may not like what he says, such as, eat this, don't eat that, exercise more, etc., but he is honest with you, orders tests that are needed, gives you choices, and has a great sense of humor. The office area is clean, neat, and attractive. Contact with others in the office, testing sites, etc. is positive.

Great experience! I went to see Dr. Lizarraga for the first time and it was a very positive experience. Since childhood, I have always had a lot of anxiety over doctor's visits. However, Dr. Lizarraga was personal and the anxiety left quickly. He listened well and did not force any kind of treatment but was very methodical. He reduced my blood pressure medication from three pills to one. I have referred my wife to Dr. Lizarraga and she was impressed as well.

Very knowligeble compassionate. At times I think he feels my pain before I do. Listens very carefully. Never judges me. Always has a encouraging smile Never hesitates to seek advise from his specialty peers. He is a doctor I would send my mother to.

My family sees Dr. Lizarraga at the Frist Clinic. He is a really great doctor and I feel very comfortable recommending him and his staff. He listens and gives gentle advise. He is thorough with his exams. We feel fortunate to have him as our family doctor.

I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Lizzarraga as my primary care doctor. He has a way of explaining my care that makes me understand. The staff is just as awesome as he is. I appreciate his punctuality, if your appointment is 8:30, he is in the room by 8:33. He took care of my grandfather until he passed. Dr. Lizzarraga wrote a letter to my father saying how sorry he was for his passing. That meant so much to my family.

Dr. Lizarraga has been my personal physician since February 2014, which is when my previous doctor closed his practice. I am very pleased with our relationship, as you can see by the way I ranked the items below. I would be happy to recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Lizarraga is absolutely exceptional. He lives out everything he speaks of in his video. He is an active listener and is definitely a critical thinker who is kind and compassionate towards his patients. Last year, he literally saved my life when I came in for a physical. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a primary care physician.

I recently had to go to the hospital for adbomen pain. When they scanned me they found that I had Lymphoma. Dr. Lizarraga treated me for 1 1/2 years while I complained of a constant cough, unexplained loss of 80 lbs., and night chills. He NEVER suggested that I get scanned. I asked him directly, "Do I have cancer?" He said, "No, b/c it didn't show in your bloodwork." He must not have know Lymphoma doesn't sho in blood work. I'm leaving this review hoping that this doesn't happen to anyone else

He is a vevry good dr

He is, by far, the best primary doctor I've ever had. These days, is hard to find a doctor who willingly takes the time to listen to their patients' concerns and needs, but Dr. Lizarraga does it in a natural and genuine way. He is respectful, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
