    Dr. Rizvi first diagnosed with MS, and he and his office have been amazing since then. His matter-of-fact way of speaking was a quality that I really respect when it comes to understanding my disease. He told me right away that my MS was very aggressive, and that we should act quickly with strong medications. Although scary to hear, it was refreshing to have someone be so blunt when everyone else was trying to pretend like it wasn't a serious issue. He's an excellent doctor.

    He is the best MS physician/neurologist. After many years of varying diagnoses from neurologists, he made a definitive diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in a short period of time and has treated the illness. We explored various treatments and he is willing to re-examine various treatments when necessary. He will answer any question that you or your family asks. He is the best.

    I was diagnosed with MS by Dr. Rizvi, but then again he still treated me as if I'm lying about my symptoms. He stated "I believe how bad your exhaustion is but not about anything else" he begun to get loud in my face and said " the rest is all in your head!" I was so shocked and disgusted by how you can treat any patient like that but one with a serious, invisible illness and act like I'm making this all up!! Especially when you diagnosed it yourself and you work with MS patients every day!

    This Dr. has no personality whatsoever. I call him the mad scientist. I seen him for the first time, he started me on a med for migraines, which was too high of a dose. Back 3 months. MRI done. Nothing for migraines. Not even ibuprofen. He says he done. Go to other Dr.?? Waiting for MRI results and no appointment available for results. Migraines getting worse. Still won't see me. Totally uncaring Dr.!!!! I feel he's useless. Unfortunately I had to give a star!!!!
