"Great listener, his overall Experiance is top notch."

"The Doctor is very good to deal with but his staff is very hard to deal with. His nurse never gets back to patients, they can't schedule to save their lives and I left his care because I was always so frustrated with his workers. Props to the Doctor, but he needs a WHOLE new staff. "

"As a potential new patient, I waited for 3 hours and the doctor never showed up. I had to leave because I had to return to work. There was no forewarning nor explanation of why my first visit, which I had to leave and could not reschedule until the end of September, was So long. I had heard good things about Dr Rivera, and I’m so disappointed at the treatment and how it unfolded."

"Dr. Rivera is fantastic. He diagnosed my thyroid issue when no other physician could figure it out. His practice is very busy as he is the best at what he does. "

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.
