      Dr. Rizzuto recently removed a cyst from my facial cheek, and he did a phenomenal job! I was extremely nervous about what the scar might look Iike prior to the surgery - but honestly it just look like a cut that's healing beautifully. He made sure there were only 2 stitches on the outside and put stitches that dissolve inside. I would highly recommend him as a facial surgeon.

      I was so impressed with Dr. Rizzuto and the friendly and professional staff at the ENT Center in Warwick. I was nervous about having this type of surgery, but I had a very positive experience, and the results are just perfect. Highly recommended!

      Had the misfortune of having to see many doctors over the past 10 years. He's one of the best! Always personable, authentic, talented and doesn't shy away from a political debate :). He thinks logically but doesn't let the bedside manner falter. He is also sensitive to my nervous nelly nature and tailors the way he speaks to me to help keep me as much at ease as possible and all without having to dope me up on drugs for our in office procedures. Grateful to have found him!

      My experience was wonderful. Not only did he immediately diagnose my problem, but he explained it and even gave me a diagram! This after seeing several doctors who didn't help at all. The surgery was done at the ENT center in Warwick which was a good experience as well. Post surgery no bruising, no swelling, no pain. I never took any pain medication. I am so grateful!

      Dr. Rizzuto is so easy to talk to, I never feel rushed, he spends time asking me what I want, not what he thinks I should do. If I am unrealistic, he will guide me in the right direction, so that my treatment gives me a natural ageless appearance. His staff is very friendly, they make you feel like part of the family. I never have to wait to be seen, even if I need a touch-up, they accommodate me immediately. If he happens to be running late (not often), I get an apology.

      Dr. Rizzuto treated my 88 year old mom and he was wonderful with her. Was not condescending, spoke clearly and was very respectful. He repaired her eyelid position following a skin graft she had to remove skin cancer from her cheek and he did a great job. She had minimal discomfort and eyelid is back to proper positioning. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing ophthalmic plastic surgery.

      Dr. Rizutto is very knowledgeable, caring and friendly as he explains the procedure that he will be doing to fix the area effected by MOHs surgery. The morning of surgery he made me feel very comfortable about what was to be done. Post surgery his office contacted me to be sure that I was doing okay and asked if I had any concerns. I would certainly recommend him.
      in Pawtucket, RI |
      Amazing. I never thought my lazy eyelid would look normal. You did it. I see better and to top it off, I look better. Easy surgery with your fantastic staff. You're wonderful Dr. Rizutto. Thank you, Laureen (Dec. 2015)

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
