Good visit.

Dr. Risbano was very cordial, and apologized for not getting into the room as quickly as usual because there was a problem with another patient. I have pulmonary hypertension which is linked to an autoimmune disorder and he was very knowledgable and concerned about the link between the two.

I always have a very positive experience with my health care provider. He not only addresses my diagnoses, but strives to meet personal needs, asking how I AM. He makes me feel comfortable and confident in the desired health plan determined for me at this time.
