DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. I made an appt 2 months prior to my visit and rearranged my work schedule to be there. 10 minutes before my appt, while I was nearly there, I was called on my cell and my appt was canceled. Seriously? If this is how you treat your patients after waiting 2 months to be seen I am going elsewhere. I read that he is arrogant. Apparently so!

Dr Riskin, not only seriously injured my husband during his incorrectly performed EMG. His lack of concern and lack of help getting us to the right doctors a year ago, left us fighting on our own to get him care. He was cold rude and bizarre when we saw him after a spinal tap. A year later, my husband has become disabled with a serious neurological disorder called Complex Regional pain syndrome. His lack of care and medical neglect, led this to spreading throughout my husbands entire body.

Dr.Riskin was very thorough, personable, kind and conscientious doctor. His professionalism and "bedside manner" are refreshing in the world of health-care. I felt like I was in very good hands. The speed of receiving results from tests was exceptional. One of the worst parts of medical care is the waiting. I was able to get results within days rather than the normal weeks.

I have never been so depressed after leaving a doctors office as I was with him. He told me there was no hope for me so I some just take some meds and hope they work for me.
