I started Rizzo Family Medicine because I wanted to provide patients with “old school” medicine. I came up with our practice slogan “making healthcare great again, one patient at a time” to emphasize my philosophy of practicing medicine where the physician takes time to listen to the patient and the entire staff knows who you are when you call or come into the office.
I have been a board-certified osteopathic physician for over 20 years. Throughout the years, I have cared for thousands of patients in just about every setting and have seen almost everything that can happen. It has been a privilege to do what I do, and a humbling education that only time and experience could achieve. It has transformed me into a skilled clinician and has taught me countless lessons about people, health and our healthcare system.
That experience has taught me that being a good doctor and giving good advice takes time. It takes time to listen and understand what is happening and to explain what should be done and why. Time to listen, evaluate and educate is, sadly, what our health system has sacrificed most. Our system has also been built to focus on disease rather than prevention, and as such, many health issues that people suffer from, that possibly could have been avoided, are not.
By limiting my practice to a smaller panel of patients, I can devote enormous time and energy to being the doctor my patients need me to be, and the doctor they deserve. My partnership with MDVIP has given me the tools and infrastructure I need to be that doctor. The early detection tests MDVIP offers, along with their extensive library of nutritional and wellness information, aligns beautifully with my goal to prevent problems before they happen. It is an exciting collaboration. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time.
I truly believe the healthcare needs of my patients should come above everything else and I invite you to join me in a partnership to better achieve the healthiest version of you possible. Let’s prevent what we can and treat what we need to with compassion, humanity and a common-sense approach aligned with your goals and your priorities.
This way we truly can make healthcare great again, one patient at a time.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
