Dr. Rizzo was very professional, courteous, and skilled at removing the basal cell carcinoma on my body. I would recommend him as a dermatology surgeon.

I had skin cancer on the top of my foot. A very tricky spot!! Dr. Rizzo and his team performed Mohs surgery to remove the cancer and you cannot even see where the cancer was!! Dr. Rizzo and his team are very professional. I see Dr. Rizzo every 6 months. I would highly recommend!

After Dr. Nazareth at WNY Dermatology found Basal cell carcinoma on my nose, Dr. Rizzo and his staff at MOHS Surgery came to my rescue. I couldn't have asked for a more competent and professional team. After initially explaining the procedure, and exploring my options, they performed a relatively painless operation. It was quick and without excessive discomfort. After a short recuperation and miraculous outcome, Dr. Rizzo is my hero!

I recently had squamous cell carcinoma removed by Dr. Rizzo. It was the first time I met him. I must say that I was very impressed by him and his staff. The surgery went well and Dr. Rizzo took the time to talk to me after that and after each follow-up visit. He is very thorough. Also, he and his staff are very professional and pleasant. I felt so comfortable. I have now made the change and Dr. Rizzo will be my regular Dermatologist. I have already highly recommended him and his practice.

Dr. Rizzo is definitely the best and takes an abundance of time and care with his patients. He makes you feel comfortable with whatever procedure has to be done. I have total faith in him and he always goes above and beyond whatever physicians are required to do for their patients. Again, he is the best!

Went to Dr. Rizzo, following a referral from Dr. Grassi, my dermatologist, to have a cancerous mark removed from my face. Dr. Rizzo swiftly removed all signs of the cancer leaving only a slight scar after the wound healed. I had been initially worried about having surgery on my face, but Dr. Rizzo's friendly and professional manner, as well as that of his staff, put me at ease.

Dr. Rizzo performed Mohs surgery on my ear to remove some cancerous cells. From the first consultation through the final release, the process was excellent. Every step of the way Dr. Rizzo kept me advised as to how I was progressing and the process to assure my healing was going as planned. He always spent plenty of time during the surgery and each subsequent visit to make sure I had a complete understanding of my situation. He performed the surgery in such a manner that it allowed for natural healing which I am grateful for. Whenever I had a question and called his office, he or his staff responded quickly. His entire staff was excellent from start to finish in the service they provided. I highly recommend Dr. Rizzo.

Overall experience was very positive. Everyone here was very helpful as well as the post-care recommendations to use AD&E ointment. I have received a lot of compliments from friends/family saying they couldn’t even tell I had surgery and my grandkids even said it had disappeared. Follow up phone calls afterwards were helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Rizzo and his staff.

My experience has been excellent. I have been to plenty of Dr’s but I have to say that this is as good of an experience that I’ve ever had. The staff is friendly and the Dr. is thorough. I’ve had good care and he is certainly good at what he does having been through the procedure twice. I recommend him to anyone.
