Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Rizvi was truly excellent in all categories.

Everything was good.

My primary provider Dr. [...], Dr. Rizvi, there all good providers.

When you feel as tho you are their only patient - great!

Vascular surgery is a very unpleasant surgery. I don't know that it would have been better with another doctor.

Dr. came in last minute of appt. confirmed what I had been told - a waste of time.

Dr. Rizvi was excellent. however, his PA ,Dr. [...], greatly disappointed me for taking a non-emergent call while he was with me in the patient room. [...]

Very good care had 2 surgeries an such good care. Also sent me to rehab after the surgery -

Dr. had not read my file and couldn't remember why I was there. He dismissed me without asking a question. I had to forcibly tell him my symptoms and who to refer me to.

All have been very good.

they all we're very helpful

Told me when pain got to where I couldn't take it, call & come in.
