I would not recommend Dr. Risica. He is not helpful at all. Does not listen, does not answer questions. Ignorant. Do not waste your life, time and money.

told me i had my tonsils and adenoids out. I knew that. Was told that i a risk for surgery at least 10 times. didn't tell me what he could or not do. Referred me to another Dr. For the same thing i went to see him for
Dr Risica is not a very approachable person. My daughter who is a toddler and can not communicate well has seen him a handful of times. Each time my daughter has been scared. He did very little to comfort her and continued to tell me nothing is wrong with her golf ball sized tonsils. Well I know when my daughter is uncomfortable and Dr. Risica has done little to help her.
