Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Rizk performed an emergency bowel resection/hemicholectomy on me. He did an amazing job with minimal scarring and his aftercare was dutiful and diligent. He explains everything well and puts you at ease. Definitely recommend.

He performed my skin flap surgery in 2015 & a GI surgery a few weeks ago. Excellent, caring surgeon and his office staff member, Rachel, is extremely helpful. The skin flap surgery was major and it is almost impossible to even see a scar.
