I found Dr. Rizzo to be quite cold. While he helped me with one gastro issue, he completely missed the boat on another and I ended up having surgery to remove part of my colon.

Not sure why he has so many good reviews. He is a nice guy, but as a doctor he lacks knowledge. He can't diagnose correctly! HOW are you a doctor if you can't diagnose. He also has a lot of "I dont knows". well if you dont know, please refer me to a gastro who does. please don't waste your time and...more

HE was terrible. :(. He was no help at all. Very cold and does not make time to speak to you in person or on phone. He didn't help me find a diagnosis. Never returned phone calls. Please stay away from this doctor.
