I love Dr. Risk. He is so kind and warm, and funny, too! But the main thing, of course, is that he's a super doctor. It's amazing how much he knows about so many things! And he has helped me a lot. I guess that's the bottom line. He's the best doctor I've ever had.

This man has no bedside manner and is less than considerate when speaking to his patients. I sincerely question his level of care versus his desire to make money.

The best doctor I've ever had. Twice he saved my wife's life. Incredible diagnostician. His staff is great, and when you call his office a real person answers the phone, not a recording. You don't get lost in voice mail hell.
