8 week visit- post MOHS surgery. Healing well. Opted not to have a skin graft. Had abrasion to smooth the depth of the wound. This worked well. Dr. Rizzo always explains everything in detail. He is a very knowledgeable and competent surgeon. I have already recommended him to others. I would not hesitate to return if needed. (This is a 2nd review as I did not complete the first one fully)

Dr. Rizzo is very professional and personable. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. during my procedure with him, he was constantly aware of my comfort level and he made certain that I did not experience any discomfort. He took time to explain the procedure, options and outcomes. The facility is outstanding and the staff are also quite professional and caring. I would recommend Dr. Rizzo with hesitation to anyone needing MOHS surgery and dermatological care. My wife also received treatment from Dr. Rizzo and her experience was equally as positive as mine. He is a great doctor!

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!

Frank Mogavero – Jul 13, 2021
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!

Eric C – Jun 17, 2021
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.

John Murphy – Jun 10, 2021
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.
