Wonderful Dr

Dr. Rizk is a wonderful doctor who's on top of her game. Her due diligence saved me the trouble of returning for another surgery 6 or 12 months from now from a cancerous tumor that would have probably started to grow and spread, when no other doctor suggested taking a biospy of the other breast and didn't insist on a MRI as she did. She is very thorough and covers everything. She answers all questions, doesn't rush the appointment, and has a very competent and supportive staff. They are truly a team and will be your quarterback! She tries to do everything for your convenience. The hospital was equally as good and I received exceptional care. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Rizk to anyone. She is just fabulous in every way: knowledgeable, dedicated, bed side manner, etc! I had consultations with other surgeons and none came close to my experience with her.
