Overall, I had a horrifying experience with Dr. Jorizzo and I truly hope no one has to endure the terrible bed side manners he displays. He walked in and immediately began selling his opinion about treatment options while his back was facing me. He quickly breezed through all the material in a very condescending way. I’m sure he is knowledgeable, but without patient centered care it’s a no go. Would not recommend to anyone. Stay clear.

I will never return to this doctor. He did not take time listen to me or the progression of the issue. He kept telling me that med changes I had OVER 6 months prior caused the ACUTE rash (birth control that I had not taken for over 1 yr and antibiotic treatment for acne that had been stopped 6 months prior). He was not paying attention and barely even looked at the rash. He then told me he had written textbooks on dermatology and if I didn’t agree I could leave. So, I did leave. In tears.

I would highly recommend Dr. Jorizzo for any skin problems. My husband suffers from extreme exzema and Dr. Jorizzo was able to diagnose the problem within a short time. Dr. Jorizzo was friendly, explained the treatments thoroughly, and we came away very satisfied.

My first appointment with Dr. Jorizzo took over 3 hours, but I did get to speak with some detail to his assistant about my issue with localized scleraderma. However, on my follow up visit, the assistant was not there and Dr. Jorizzo spent less than three minutes with me and would not allow me to ask any questions. I literally chased him into the hall to ask one question about medication. I am very anti conflict and listen to doctors, but he would not speak to me at all.

Dr Jorizzo is excellent! When we met Dr Jorizzo he sat next to my son and told him he could help with a severe painful cystic issue on his back. He spent a lot of time and gave us hope. We followed up after taking medication and using a cream that the had created and prescribed and within 2 weeks my sons condition was 75% better in two weeks! He is now almost totally healed 1 month later. We are so grateful for his expertise!

I had a terrible experience with Dr. Jorizzo. He was running an hour and fifteen minutes late. When I expressed my frustration, he raised his voice and minimized my reason for scheduling an appointment. I have also seen him for 5 other appointments and he still does not remember me. I told him that I deserve the same level of care as anybody else. Ultimately, he refused to see me and said that if I don't like to wait, and don't like what he says, I can see another doctor.
