I can't say enough good things about Dr. Risse. She is a super doctor, the way she speaks to me and my daughter and she is such a great listener and easy going and approachable. I feel very lucky my daughter has her as she is approaching her teenage years. After her WCC I went home and thanked my friend who recommended her (again, since we have seen her ever since wonderful Dr. Conn retired.

*Dr. Risse is fantastic! She easily connects with both my sons (ages 13 & 16) and explains things in simple terms. She uses appropriate humor to make them feel comfortable sharing concerns. HIGHLY recommend.

Dr. Risse is fantastic, and VM should do all it can to make it easier for docs to provide the kind of thoughtful, empathetic and evidence- and experience-based approach that Dr. Risse does.
