I have been a patient of Dr. Risenger for many years. I consider him a very important Dr. and friend that has kept me heart healthy for many years. His advice and professional expertise is so important to me and so much appreciate him and the entire staff at Austin Heart South. Thanks again Dr. Risenger.

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.

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 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.

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
