After mom was diagnosed with lung cancer, we didn’t know what to expect when we’re referred to Dr Rizk. Dr Rizk and his team including nurses - Lisa, Jessica and Laura are very awesome in handling moms care. What we like about them is they’re passionate with what they do, with their advices, guidance and they made us feel that they’re really there to help and we’ll get through this. I am taking care of mom and it has been a very difficult year for us. In behalf of my mom and family, we would like to thank from the bottom of our heart Dr Rizk, Lisa, Jessica, Laura, and the entire staff, thank you, and May God bless you.

I cannot thank Dr. Rizk enough for his high level of professionalism and competence in performing minimal invasive lung surgery on me. Dr. Rizk and his staff, especially Lisa and Laura, Patient Navigators, constantly provided guidance and pertinent information during my entire journey. Dr. Rizk inspires trust and confidence in such a way that I knew I was in good hands the first time I met him.
