Dr. Rizk's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rizk "Habib G. Rizk, M.D., grew up in Beirut, Lebanon. He graduated from Notre-Dame de Jamhour College, one of the most prestigious establishments in the Middle East, summa cum laude with both a French and a Lebanese Baccalaureate. He then attended the French Faculty of Medicine-Saint Joseph University in Beirut, Lebanon, for a seven-year medicine program. He was a recipient of an exceptional seven-year academic scholarship for the 125th anniversary of Saint-Joseph University. He graduated in 2007. Dr. Rizk pursued an otolaryngology — head & neck surgery residency at Hôtel-Dieu de France Hospital in Beirut, one of the premier medical centers in the region and completed a five-year residency program in 2012. Following this, he came to the United States, to Wilmington, Delaware and completed a one-year otologic medicine and surgery fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Michael Teixido. Dr. Rizk then joined the Medical University of South Carolina for a two-year neurotology fellowship from July 2013 through June 2015. Dr. Rizk has been involved in hearing-related and dizziness-related research throughout his residency and fellowship. He authored several book chapters and articles. Dr. Rizk's interests pertain to all areas of otology and neurotology with a specific focus on medical and surgical management of vestibular disorders. Upon conclusion of his fellowship, Dr. Rizk joined the MUSC Department of Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery as the director of the vestibular center in order to establish a multidisciplinary dizziness evaluation and management program in Charleston."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rizk "Patients suffering from dizziness either have straightforward pathologies that can be readily treated with a careful clinical exam and treated with medication or surgery, or have more complex causes and comorbidities that can cloud the picture. In our clinic, we provide a comprehensive evaluation of the patient's condition. This starts by allowing them enough time to express their symptom, which can be the hardest aspect of the encounter. Dizziness is a catch-all term, and unless we can  define it better (spinning, lightheadedness, swaying...) we may not get  enough information to order the appropriate tests or start the appropriate treatment. Our new patients receive a questionnaire  with directed inquiries about their symptoms, often times before their appointment. I also spent time reviewing their answers before proceeding with the clinical exam. Patients are encourage to keep a diary  to monitor their progress with treatment and to identify potential triggers for their symptoms."
