Dr. Rizvi

Dr. Rizvi has attended many conferences and health screenings and has participated in original research. He has been a member of multiple professional associations throughout his training including the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and American Podiatric Medical Association. 

Dr. Rizvi has training in all aspects of foot and ankle medicine and surgery, and has particular interest in foot and ankle sports injuries, fractures, and flatfoot reconstructions. Despite his thorough surgical training, he knows that often providing the best treatment possible involves avoiding surgery.
