What People Say About Dr. Abraham Rivera, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
I have many medical problems and have been to many doctors that made me feel inadequate and lacking pain tolerance. Dr. Rivera is one of a kind. He is always up, happy to see you, caring, listens with both ears, and kind. He knows what he is talking about. Six other doctors saw me and questioned what kind of rod was in my lower spine. When Dr. saw it he immediately said it was a pedicle screw. And it was responsible for the bulk of my pain because it didn't belong there & he had no cure for me.
