Excellent all around. After 1st meeting I was very confident he knew what to do for me and explained fully. Never tired of my questions. Had long time severe arthritis problems in left thumb, fingers and wrist. After surgery and physical therapy I have much more use of my left hand. Thanks again Dr Rives. So glad to have found you!!

Due to medical complications I needed to have a specialized hand surgery and it was unknown if I could find a Physician in KC North who could perform it. When I contacted Dr. Rives, immediately the Nurse reassured me that he performed the surgery. Dr. Rives explained the surgery, and my anxiety went away. From the time I made my appointment to after surgery, I received the best care possible and could not thank Dr. Rives and his Nurse enough. I highly recommend Dr. Rives to anyone and everyone.

I have had 2 carpal tunnel surgeries performed by Dr. Rives; one on the left and one on the right. Both outcomes were excellent. Dr. Rives has impeccable education, training and experience in this field. He customarily uses an endoscopic procedure as opposed to an open one that leaves no external scarring and allows him to minimize nerve involvement because he can visualize the anatomy inside the hand and wrist.He has a very pleasant manner, cares about his patients and comes right to the point.
