I have been a patient of Dr. Rivera now for 7 years. He is very honest and will give his advise on what can best be done for treatment of pain. He has done numerous RFA and steriod injections on myself. He is very gentle and does not want his patients to hurt. I recommend him to anyone with back pain.

Took the time to discuss with me my options dealing with lower back pain. Was willing to pursue conservative treatments first. Made sure I understood everything, and did not rush me at all. He is an excellent doctor.
