"Went to ER. they tell me after a MRI, I have a tumor. Pain is unreal. Saw Dr Vives, Sends me home with Meds. Shows me the MRI... tells me what has to be done. Tells He will request Stress test.. I thought this was like the right track. He requested and my doctor performed the test. I waited and waited.. I finally call the office.. No return calls.. left messages. Then I get my office involved.. and they tell me.. He has never heard from me. I have been in so much pain a and to have no response. very Poor office staff. To think I Have waiting 6 weeks with little sleep and constant pain It is sad to thing this kind happen's."

"I have had my worst medical experience with Dr Vivas and his staff; - wrong diagnosis, based on spending very little time up front- incorrect reading of MRI- zero follow up after recommending next steps- staff never answer phone and direct patients to a portal then never return messages through the portal- my last request took me 3 emails to finally get someone to speak to me Stay away!"

"Terrible overall experience - showed no real interest in my condition with a rushed first appointment - made inaccurate assumptions - no clearity on condition after MRI - terrible communication system and portal"

"In 2003 I suffered a TBI. Without Dr Vives and his team, I doubt I would have survived. Thanks to their expert care and professionalism, I made a full recovery. Honestly, it is difficult to express the profundity of my appreciation for this. In a situation where the best prognosis would have involved some kind of disability or impairment, the outcome was nothing short of a miracle. Thank you, Dr Vives!"

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
