    Patient Comments (5)
    I was a patient of Dr. De Risi for over 10 years. He dropped me as a patient in Jan. 2017. The reason is he forgot the Hippocratic Oath and through the years he devoted himself to money not his patients. He had the taste of a very rich lifestyle and this replaced eveything else. Right now he only takes very select insurances. I am glad that I was dropped. I would not want Drl De Risi performing any procedures on me.

    Dr DeRisi has a good rep in LI but I was less than impressed. I found him very inappropriate ie talking to me (just diagnosed) & my husb about how much more the plastic surgeon makes than him, and pushing you in direction to make more $/partner with others, rather than taking the time and listening to his patients needs. I am thrilled post op that I went elsewhere to a top surgeon that really cared and was more honest. I could go on as to reasons to run the other way, but Ill leave it there.

    Very caring MD with excellent bedside manner. Skilled surgeon. I would definitely recommend him. No long waits at office appointments. Most of the front staff are pleasant and helpful. Nursing staff are excellent. I enjoy attending the support group they have monthly. Would be great if they had the support group every week.

    I consulted with Dr. De Risi based on high recommendations that he received from an acquaintance of mine. However, I was disappointed with the experience. I left the visit feeling ill informed. I definitely felt that he allowed me to falsely believe that I was a good candidate for a lumpectomy and there was no need to meet with a plastic surgeon unless I wanted a mastectomy. At the advise of another surgeon, I later ended up meeting with an oncologist to try shrinking my tumor before surgery.
