    Milisa Rizer is my favorite health provider in all health systems! Not just OSU. She is unique in her willingness and ability to really listen to me and to take the time that is needed to address my questions and concerns. I trust her advice because I know she has carefully considered the health/medical data and applied it to my own personal health history. In addition, she is so caring, warm, available and responsive. Frankly, I don't know how she does it. I feel fortunate to be in her care.

    Dr Riser is absolutely fantastic. So smart, and able to convey complex information in a relevant accessible way. She is alert to any issue and always "connects the dots" between my medical history and any new symptoms or concerns, She is firm, respectful and kind. She has a unique ability to talk about areas of concern in exactly the right tone -- neither alarmist nor understated. To the point, but sensitive at the same time. I believe she is a true partner in improving my health. I can't imagine a better doctor.
