I went in to get my shoulder checked out after falling on ice. She told me it was just a sprain and to go back to work and "just take it easy". I told her that something felt seriously wrong and that I didn't feel comfortable going back to work in my condition (I'm a firefighter and need to be physically capable of doing my job), she just repeated herself. I went to see a specialist against her wishes and turns out I had torn my rotator cuff and needed surgery. I have had many problems with her

Terrible care provider. Her office is poorly managed by Karen, keep canceling appointments without notifying patients. The Dr is not nice ..don't go there...try your best to find another place.

Trully awfull experience. First of all the receptionists are rude and literally scream at you. The way the treat the elderly is shamfull. Moreover my experience with Dr Pro Risquez could have been something one sees in a sarcastic comedy. I made an urgent appointment because my blood pressure had shot up to dangerous levels and when the Dr arrived she screamed at me for being 10 minutes late and kept on going for about at leat a minute. Never asking how I was feeling. STAY AWAY!!

On call for Dr. Holzman I found myself several times having to deal with her. Totally incompetent. I could have died. Literally. Stay away.

I followed Dr. Pro-Risquez from her previous practice. She is a caring doctor who always has had my best medical interest in mind. She takes her time, knows my medical and family history well, and has had excellent diagnostic skills. From the sniffles to managing major illnesses, I have always felt I can trust her judgement.

Dr. Pro-Risquez never fully listens to me the few times I have been to see her. Each time I see her she never knows my medical history nor remembers my medical issues or why I am there to see her. All my other doctors look everything up on the computer system where all my records are. She never seems to know me or who or what she has referred me to other specialists for. She has zero bedside manner and she lacks empathy for her patients. Horrible experience.

I have followed her from her previous practice at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center. Dr. Pro-Risquez is an attentive listener and a compassionate PCP.
