I've been seeing Dr. Riskin for almost 35 years. He is patient and empathetic and listens to his patients. He takes time to explain things and answer any questions. Thanks to his great care and expertise the treatment he has given me has kept damage from the arthritis to a minimum. For that I am grateful. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Riskin is probably one of two doctors I can honestly say is the best doctor I have been to and I am 61 years old. He takes his time with his patients, explains any questions you might have and is very relatable.

Dr. Riskin is one of the most understanding and empathetic doctors among one other I have seen over the years. He listens, includes you, the patient, in decisions regarding medications and is just an all around doctor that doesn't act superior, as many do.

I feel lucky to have Dr. Riskin as my doctor. He is very knowledgeable, caring and has a great personality, which is often hard to find. I have been his patient for many years and am very comfortable having him treat me. In this day and age of rush, rush, rush, he always listens and gives each patient his attention. Sorry, I don't see anything wrong with this review.........

Dr. Riskin is an excellent Doctor. He listen, explains himself very well and has an awesome bedside manner. Most of the time there is a family member with me, and not only is he friendly and courteous he explains to them what is going on with my health and answers all their questions. He treats me as if I was one of his children and never hurries me along to see the next patient. He always takes the time to listen. I highly recommend him all of the time and will continue to see him as long as I
