Dr. Rizk performed a laparoscopic gallbladder surgery on me. It was my very first surgery and with it came a lot of questions and nervousness. Dr. Rizk was very thorough with his explanations and provided a clear picture of what to expect pre, during and post surgery. His willingness to answer any and all questions I had was very reassuring. The procedure went smoothly and I had a quick recovery. Dr. Rizk has great bedside manner that leaves you feeling safe and in good hands. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Rizk is a wonderful person and surgeon. He explained every detail of what my surgery and recovery would be like. He took the time and answered all of my many questions and never seemed to be in a hurry. His followup after surgery was excellent as well. He is compassionate and it is obvious he truly cares about his patients. I would highly 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.
