Dr. Risinger was very attentive and thoughtful when talking about my health concerns. He took time to listen to me as if I was the only patient he would be seeing that day. Of course he is busy, so it wasn’t a long conversation but it was quality time spent with me, and I liked that.. He has someone typing notes so he can focus on talking to his patients. He not only treats the heart he speaks to the heart . Staff was friendly and efficient. I will recommend him to anyone with heart problems.

From the moment that Dr. R walked into the room with a smile, I immediately felt at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained things to me in laymen's terms without making me feel like an idiot. This was my first ever appt. with a Cardiologist. You can tell that he actually cares about his job.
in Dale, TX |
Even though Dr. Risinger Jr has many patients, he makes me feel that my health is of the utmost importance to him. There's nothing worse than feeling like your doctor isn't listening to you and just pushing you out of the door making you feel unsatisfied with the service. Dr. Risinger Jr and his staff makes me feel that. I am extremely satisfied with the healthcare they provide.

Dr. Risinger, and his staff, are professional, knowledgeable, and personable. He is a Cardiologist with Heart, and has my best interests and continuing good health (after two serious heart attacks before I was directed to his practice) in mind. His staff are pleasant, thorough, and quick, unless he has an emergency I never feel rushed or like I have to wait an excessive amount of time for appointments.

I was referred to Dr. Norman Risinger by my General Practitioner. Completing all of the new patient forms and setting up a patient portal went very smoothly. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. I feel blessed to have been referred to Dr. Risinger. He has a very warm and friendly personality. He walks into the examining room...always with a big smile and a friendly greeting. I trust him completely with any health issues that arise.
Dr Risinger made me feel comfortable when discussing my testing results. Very straight forward with no beating around the bush, which a communication style I prefer.

Dr. Risinger is awesome. Straight forward and to the point, but won't hesitate to have a deep dive conversation around the areas you ask about. You will quickly pick up on his knowledge and experience, which sets the stage for knowing you're in good hands.

in Austin, TX |
Dr. Risinger is one of the best. He is excellent in Doctor patient relationship. I always feel at ease in his presence. The information he shares concerning my condition is always clear and easy to understand. Two years ago when we moved from Portland Oregon to Austin, I felt I had the best cardiologist and I was fearful of not finding one as good as the one I was leaving. I am very thankful for being directed to Dr. Risinger.

in Austin, TX |
Having been referred to Dr.Risinger by my family physician, I was confident that this would be a good fit for me. I had been with my original cardiologist since 1997, but in 2011 it was time to make a change. I was happy to learn from my first visit that Dr.Risinger and his office was indeed a good referral for me. He advised me early on that I had a pending situation to deal with and a potential serious problem was averted. I continue to see him every 6 months.
in Austin, TX |
Was with him a couple years ago, and glad to be back. I have an annual echo and checkup for a valve replacement. Never been anything gone wrong, but Dr. Risinger's very good about addressing questions, explaining, and comforted if you will. If I had any gripe, it would be that the policy at Austin Heart is to not give out any specific number readings from the echo either during or after.

I had an emergent situation and Dr Risinger work me in to his schedule. Very reassuring.

I have been under Dr. Risinger's care for several years. I have found him to be professional in every way. He offers options -- when I can have one, after all he is a heart doctor! He tells me the truth, and gives me good referrals when I have needed them. I appreciate his whole staff, who is friendly and professional, and makes going to the doctor almost easy.
in San Antonio, TX |
Initial visit was a sham and we won't be back. Dr Risinger came in for a minute or 2, made small talk, did some very basic minor checkup on my wife then walked out. Then later got a big bill for a 45 minute extensive evaluation. I raised it to their internal audits and they said checked out because 'it has all the documentation. He has someone come in with him to do the documentation the moment the door opens, but they're not documenting the exam and conversation. They're filling out the docum

I was very nervous and a little scared because of the symptoms I had been experiencing but he and his staff let me know that although this was not a good situation, I could trust them and they would take care of me. I believe them completely. Wonderful experience
