Patient Comments (4)
I would give a 0. We never made it to see Dr. Garcia Rivera. The office staff is incompetent and rude. They reschedule my mother's appointment twice. I'm on the phone with a staff member who is confirming the appt while a second staff member is calling on the other line to reschedule. They finally ended up cancelling the appt because whoever scheduled the appt with me didn't know he didn't accept her insurance. When I asked to speak to the office manager to complain, they refused to transfer me.
