Dr. Rizk performed an emergency appendectomy on my 5 year old daughter. He did an amazing job interacting with her and helping her to understand what was going to happen. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Rizk has been a great provider and surgeon throughout my weightloss process. He is very knowledgeable and a great bed side manner. I would recommend him hands down to anyone thinking of weight loss surgery. The staff at the Midlands Clinic are also great and the Dunes Hospital probably has the best care in the area!

I was referred to Dr. Rizk to have a lipoma surgery on my shoulder. Dr. Rizk cordinated this surgery with my colonoscopy so I could have them done the same day. He explained the surgery to me and answered all my questions and I was very happy with my recovery. I would definitely use him again.
