"I saw Dr Rizk for about 4 years until August of 2022 . Upon first diagnosis of diabetes Dr Rizk and his staff didn’t do the proper blood tests to determine the type of diabetes I have , they automatically assumed I was type 2 since I’m over 40 . I was given the typical type 2 regimen and medication although the reason for going to Dr Rizk was unexplained weight loss . Under Dr Rizk care my A1c went from 10 to over 14 and I lost more than 100 pounds and continued to loose weight . At 6’2” tall I was down to 170 pounds had no energy, I could barely stay awake to do my job . Upon asking Dr Rizk about the weight loss numerous times he said “ for people like you the damage is done and it will kill you “ . In August of 2022 I went to another endocrinologist who ran the C-peptide and GAD65 blood test to determine which type of diabetes I have , something Dr rizk and his staff refused to run . The test came back proving I am in fact LADA Type 1 diabetic. Insulin production almost 0 and GAD65 antibodies ...
test at 4,000 . I in fact have an autoimmune disease that is destroying my beta cells and insulin production . Dr Rizk is a one size fits all doctor and doesn’t treat patients by their individual needs . His main concern is simply blood sugar level and election frequency . He’s a pill pusher who treats the symptoms not the disease. I was so malnourished and flirting with death under Dr Rizk’s care . He gave me a death sentence and didn’t put any effort into treating me as a human being . He wrote me off as a loss cause . If I wouldn’t have done my own research and changed doctors Dr Rizk would have watched me die . "
