Initial new patient visit approx 3 hrs. The only doctor I've been too that takes his time with you. Has great bedside manner and even takes his time with you on a phone call. Dr. Risk fantastic, knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Risk is one of the best doctors to ever treat me. Extremely thorough, he treats me as an intelligent person with a real neurology problem rather than a malingerer. I would recommend Dr. Risk to anyone facing neurology problems.

Immediately you can tell this is a physician that this is a physician that cares about his patients. Dr. Risk takes the time to explain everything. he doesn't watch the clock or get yancy because he needs to hurry up to get to the next exam room. I would most definitely recommend this neurologist to anyone who needs to see of position and their specialty. My only wish.......is that there were more doctors like him.

Dr Risk war very attractive. He ask a lot of questions to dig deep down and get to the issues. He even called me personally several times to check on me and 2 times to give me test result. I believe he has very good bedside manner and will continue to see him in the future. Thank you Dr. Risk for helping me. Alison Driscoll
