I had very high expectations about Dr. Riskin based on the reviews I found. But, even though he is a nice guy, I was not impressed at all. This was more like an interview rather than a check-up. He did not do any physical examinations like other doctors do, he just asked about my condition and that was it. Also, he ordered some blood work, and I was expecting his team to give me a call for an update, but instead I have call them and ask for the results.

I adore Dr. Riskin. Not only is he outstanding in his knowlege of the medical field, but he really cares about his patients and takes his time explaining and answering whatever questions I may have. I have total faith in his decisions for my health issue and recommend all my friends to go to him if they need a rheumotologist. When you leave the office after seeing Dr. Riskin, you feel so thankful and blessed you have seen him. His nurse and the office staff are, also, wonderful.

I've gone to Dr. Riskin for over 20 years. He is a kind professional and has helped me live with AS which is a lifelong illness. I was able to do telehealth visit yesterday and it was kind of futuristic, but anyway worked out well.

Dr. Riskin is a very kind and good doctor with a lot of experience. I feel he has done well with diagnosing my very complicated health issues. His staff is very nice and accommodating. What I feel needs improvement is his phone system. Be prepared to wait on hold at least 20-30 minutes to speak to a live person. If you request a callback, that could take days. There is at least a 45 minute-hour and a half wait in the waiting room.

What a pleasure to see and know Dr W. Riskin. His dedicated time to me is his wisdom to be so kind and willing to help his patient with serious health issues. His soft voice helps to make his patient comfortable and confident what ever he recommends to do. I was hesitant to get a treatment at the first visit, but Dr Riskin did not force me to do, and I said OK. He gave me a steroid shot in my pain joint. It was a miracle: the swelling is going dawn, the pain is almost gone very next day. I definitely ( can't wait) to see this lovely Dr again to continue my treatment. I will recommend every my sick friend to go and see this wonderful Doctor. He is very good Doctor. With all my respect and appreciations to a wonderful Human being. It is not enough to say just THANK YOU. THANKS A MILLION.

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.
