I recommend my health provider very highly.
Patient Comment 05/09/2017
He may be a great doctor (I do not know) but he seemed to brush off my concerns and I had to push him to discuss EKG results which had concerned my primary care doctor but not him. He also assumed my blood pressure medicine was working when my BP was not a number I was comfortable with

Dr. Rivera was on the rehab team when I had a stent implant in 2000. I am familiar with his expertise and positve informative demeanor.

I had to wait too long to finally see the doctor. I waited an hour in the exam room after the technician left before seeing the doctor.
