First, it takes three months at least to get an appointment. They cancel it, as the other reviewer stated if you don't confirm with them when they call you. Allergy Shots? Yeah they don't call you when the serum is in. This has happened with all my kids and myself. So we spent months and months waiting for the shots. And if you DO get an appointment, and DO manage to confirm, plan on sitting in their office for two hours waiting for someone to see you. If you leave, they won't reschedule you.

Dr. Rizzo seemed in a hurry to get me in and out as fast as he could. He did a procedure on me that a subsequent ENT said was not needed. Worst of all is the West Valley ENT office itself. On two occasions I requested, in writing, to have my records sent to another ENT and to have Dr. Rizzo sign a form I needed from my insurance hearing aid company. Neither of these requests was honored. When I refused to pay my final bill until the forms were sent, they just charged me a $10 late fee.

THIS DR. RIZZO'S RIDICULOUS "POLICY" You will be allowed to make an appointment. They will tell you specific date and time. They will call you a few days before the appointment and not leave any message. If you do not call them back within one hour from their call - they cancel your appointment. GET THAT? They DON'T tell you about this "policy" when you make the appt and they DON'T leave a message telling you you need to call them back within the hour. Stay away or it'll happen to you too.

My son suffered from constant ear infections. Since he is autistic, can be very fearful of doctor. Dr. Rizzo was very patient with him and did a surgery so that my son no longer has ear infections.

He has been treating me for years! Great guy, treats me like family. Has my allergies under control!

Dr. Rizzo fixed my broken nose after I was assaulted. I did not think I was ever going to look the same but he did a great job. I can breath better than before and I was grateful for his expertise.

After 7 days of unbearable vertigo, a Christmas trip home cancelled because of it, & 2 unsuccessful trips to the hospital, I reached out to Dr. Rizzo. Dr Rizzo & his son Troy immediately saw me & began addressing my issue, BPPV, an inner ear issue which can take time or a specific hands on maneuver to fix. Dr. Rizzo and Troy were SO caring and kind to me & they got me in for 3 treatments which did completely take the vertigo away & allowed me to make it home for the holidays. SO GRATEFUL!!!
