  • 8/11/2018

    Good

  • 8/9/2018

    Dr. & PA. & nurses are very smart, helpful & nice.

  • 8/6/2018

    Dr.. Jorrizo is an excellent physician with whom I have had an opportunity to be seen by for a number of years. He is caring, compassionate, and always listens to my needs and helps.

  • 7/17/2018

    Dr. Jorizzo and his resident, Dr. Tully, were friendly and informative. They allayed my concerns about a skin rash I have had. They also gave me good advice about management of this condition.

  • 7/17/2018

    Dr. Jorrizo was to the point, treated my lesion, explained why others didn't work and very concerned about pain. He's my dermatologist.

  • 7/10/2018

    Very good doctor and one who knows his area very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs this type of care.

  • 7/10/2018

    good

  • 7/3/2018

    Dr. Jorizzo is a fabulous dermatologist. I know of none better.

  • 7/3/2018

    *Dr. Jorizzo is a great doctor!!!

  • 6/25/2018

    Dr. Jurizzo usually has a few medical students/residents with him and when he enters our room, he ALWAYS asks if they can join us. We understand that these observations are a part of their education, but I am very appreciative that our needs are put first!

  • 6/20/2018

    Dr. Jorizzo is all business. He is very busy, but concentrates on the current patient. He is very intelligent, driven and thorough. I am thankful for his help!

  • 6/7/2018

    We were so pleased, we mailed him a thank you card. Within 5 days, my daughter was already experiencing relief.

  • 6/6/2018

    ok

  • 5/30/2018

    I relocated to the NC area originally from Rochester, NY. Dr. Jorizzo reminded me of the respect that was always given when I lived in upstate NY. Then months later I find out that he is also from Rochester, NY. I have seen a few doctors in NC one time and never went back because of the way I was talked down to, treated, never given a chance to talk and rushed in and out to get to the next insurance charge. Dr. Jorizzo treated me with respect from the time I met him and still to this day a few years later. I hope the interns that he teaches also take with them his respect and care for his patience . It is hard to find a doctor that listens to you, really listens to you and shows his legitimate concern. I am very grateful that I was referred to him by a doctor in Statesville.

  • 5/7/2018

    Have recommended others.

  • 4/30/2018

    Dr. Jorrizzo is a wonderful physician.

  • 3/27/2018

    very good

  • 3/26/2018

  • 3/13/2018

  • 3/13/2018

    Gives me confidence.

  • 3/5/2018

    Dr. Jorizzo, for such a renowned physician in his field, is exceptionally thoughtful, kind and generous with his time. Dr. Jorizzo is extremely detailed and always prepared with knowledge of my condition from previous appointments. I am extremely grateful to be a patient of such a great person and also an exceptional dermatologist.

  • 2/27/2018

    Very good visit

  • 2/27/2018

    I had an excellent experience with Dr. Jorizzo, and I would highly recommend him to my friends/family/colleagues.

  • 2/27/2018

  • 12/5/2017

    TOTAL confidence in Dr. Jorizzo.

  • 12/4/2017

    this was my first encounter with Dr Jorizzo and not surprisingly he was as courteous, professional and commandingly talented in his field of dermatology as previously experienced with other physicians associated with the wake forest network. once again I received platinum quality medical treatment which supported my anxiety as well as my health issues

  • 12/3/2017

    Dr Jorizzo is a great provider who cares!

  • 11/22/2017

    Dr. didn't talk to me. Spoke w/his resident, student & my husband as if I wasn't in room. Didn't look at any records that I brought w/me. Stood at door w/hand on knob w/feet out the door.

  • 11/21/2017
