      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.

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
