I am Robins husband she passed away on 08/29/2016. Doctor Rizzo was great with her but because of personal issues he was not there to help her at the end. I think she would still be here if he was by her side.

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 needing any heart surgery.
