I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have been seeing Dr. Rivkin for almost 15 years. I always takes his time , I have never felt rushed like with other doctors in the past. I have never met a more honest doctor in my life , I never feel like I am being sold on anything, he has told me multiple times that I didn't need something I thought I did and after looking into it more he was right.

Dr. Rivkin is totally inappropriate and unprofessional. He kept me in his office waiting for two hours and then rescheduled the appointment because he was going to teach nurses injection. I am Professional and my time is highly valuable so I am very insulted and offended that he would make a professional wait for two hours waste my time only to send me someone in his office asking me to pay him thousands of dollars in advance of even having chance to see him and ask questions about the procedure.

I paid over $1100 for injectables and, after 2 weeks, my skin looked exactly as it did before I had it done. After much research, I found someone else who did an amazing job. I took photos for Dr. Rivkin, who emailed me back a dismissive response, and clearly had no intention of taking this seriously. Is there no accountability when a procedure is performed with no results? Doesn't seem right to me.

I have been seeing Dr Rivkin for 5 years now. He is amazing as he has kept me feeling less tired and haggard. He's a miracle worker. I came to him with bags and dark circles and jowls. All have disappeared for years now. Getting a facelift versus getting Botox or filler's has been a great option for me And as I age he makes it less painful for me. Thank you Dr. of can you know I love you Mary Gleeson
