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...more
