Dr. Rizk is absolutely amazing to work with. He is patient, kind and the best if the best I hands down will never see anyone else. He answered all of out questions, plus he answered our daughter's questions. He stayed with us until we felt comfortable with our surgical decision.

Dr Rizk is an excellent Dr I have been trying to get Doctors to listen to me for years that I was having shunt issues and no one wanted no part of it. Thanks to Rizk for revising my VP shunt. I highly recommend him to everyone. :)

My 8 year old daughter was suddenly diagnosed with a brain tumor. Dr. Rizk met us at the Children's Hospital and was able to get 99.9% of the tumor out He was there EVERYDAY and made sure that we knew that he would also be placing the shunt that she ultimately needed. He was amazing and would recommend him to anyone!!

My husband has had excruciating back pain for many years, and only considered surgery as a last resort when he could hardly walk anymore. Dr. Rizk saw my husband quickly when we asked for an appointment, and was able to do surgery within a week. We are beyond thrilled to report that Dr. Rizk's surgery has released him of all back pain. Repeat: All of his back pain is gone. Dr. Rizk is highly skilled, gentle and humble, and we praise God for leading us to him. We are happy and grateful.

We feel very lucky to have gotten Dr. Rizk as my father's surgeon. He saw my father immediately after he arrived at Penn State Hershey Med. Center by Life Lion. Dr. Rizk performed an emergency Craniotomy, and saved my Dad's life. He is very skilled, and is a caring and compassionate physician. He responds and answers questions quickly. He treats my elderly father with dignity and respect. I would highly recommend Dr. Rizk to anyone!!
