    Miller Place, NY |
    From my first appt in January 2016, through surgery at Stony Brook Hospital, and all follow up visits, Dr. Christine Rizk has been beyond amazing! She is a consummate professional while simultaneously exuding a bedside manner beyond comparison. She personifies a level of genuine care that all surgeons should aspire to. She exudes positive energy that is contagious and is exactly what I wanted while facing the scary road of breast cancer. I could not have been happier with her as my choice.
