Patient Comments (2)

My husband was operated on for a quadruple bypass eight years ago by Dr. Rizzo. He remains in excellent health and I credit Dr. Rizzo. His expertise, bed-side manner and follow-up were extraordinary and we couldn't have been happier with the results. I would highly recommend him for anyone...more
