He is the best internal medicine doctor that I've ever met. I working in medicine and never had a doctor but recently had a medical issue and when selecting a doctor (after I realized I really needed one myself), I decided to drive 1.5 for Dr. Rizzo to be my doctor. His practice is worth the drive....more

Very unprofessional during my hospital visit. Stopped my pain medicine on 2nd day after serious back surgery. I suffered greatly untill the night shift came on board. I cried often that day in pain.. It was a horrible experience.

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Rizzo and his office staff. My husband and I are temporarily without health insurance so our former doctor dropped us as patients. Concerned we wouldn't be able to find a doctor who accepted self pay, I searched online and chose Dr. Rizzo as his reviews...more
