What People Say About Dr. Karen Rizzo, MD

Dr. Rizzo has treated me on several occasions and has performed 2 surgeries on my sinuses. The first time she fixed my deviated septum and snipped my turbinates'. The second surgery I had a sinus infection in my frontal sinues. In Oct. I began having horrible headaches and dizzy spells and my regular doctor couldn't figure it out. I was on all sorts of medications so after 5 months I went to Dr. Rizzo and she diagnosed me and took care of my issues. I won't go to anyone but her!

Dr. Rizzo came highly recommended by many people. I finally decided to accept treatment for my facial pain coming from issues with my nose which were leading to headaches. She explained my problem and gave me the option of surgery . I hadn't wanted to do it but I trusted her and went for it. She performed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty. My problem is totally solved and I am very comfortable now. I had a very easy recovery. She did a fantastic job!! I recommend her now to everyone!

We have been going to Dr Rizzo for years for my children's ear issues and I have recently seen her myself for a related issue. Dr Rizzo is very knowledgeable in her field and shows a great deal of concern for her patient's health and well-being.
