Dr. Risolo's explanations of the why and how of his proposed procedure was very inclusive of pertinent details and ramifications of choices. He provided context for every answer, even though we suppose it would be very boring to do for someone who does these procedures so frequently. Very good responses.

The time Dr. Risolo took to explain the procedure and what to expect going forward was greatly appreciated. I was very impressed with the detail of the surgery in the notes section of MyChart. The more I know the better I feel.
