Dr Rizkalla is simply amazing in relieving pain!
Dr. Rizkalla has treated me for ongoing Cervical pain, he ultimately did a nerve oblation which has given me incredible pain relief. Other Doctors treated me with temporary fixes, Dr. Rizkalla’s treatment is still working months later. He has also performed an amazing Ultrasound guided Carpal Tunnel release procedure. The recovery time was only a few days and I was back to work. No OT was needed and was able to perform all duties normally. Just amazing! I highly recommend him. His team in the Marlton office is stellar. His NP, Adam Saalfelder in the Hamilton office is also wonderful. If you have pain issues definitely go to see him. Your guaranteed to leave feeling better than when you came :) They don’t just pass out meds, they actually help solve pain issues so you won’t need meds!

Dr Rizkalla is amazing. My family all use him. I've seen him for migraines, a car accident, general pain, nerve damage etc. He seems to be able to help with just about everything. He's extremely caring and an all around great doctor and person.

Dr. Rizkalla is the kindest, most gentle & knowledgeable Dr I have ever met. He always takes time with your appointments or follow ups and you never ever feel rushed. I have been treated by him for neck issues which he was able to relieve and even chronic migraines which also were controlled. The only downside is the level of care, knowledge and outstandiing bedside manner that he gives ..leaves you feeling lack luster at any other Dr. Visit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND to everyone!!
