Dedicated Professional of Orthopedic Surgery. Knowledgeable and caring about my condition. Would highly recommend without hesitation!
Bronxville, NY |
DR Rizzo is a true gentleman and a doc from the old school. Made house calls to my mom when she fell and was very difficult for her to get around.
in Bronxville, NY |
I went to the Emergency room with a calf tear and I was told to follow up with a specialist in a day or two. I thought to myself, no way somebody will see me that quickly. I called Dr. Rizzo's service and he personally called me back within minutes and saw me the same day. Something to be said for caring!!!
