A good doctor, a great neighbor and friend to the community! A GREAT role model and VERY handsome, too!
in North Stonington, CT |
Dr Rivera has excellent subject knowledge. He is professional, precise, efficient, patient and supportive. While many doctors rush their patients out, he is willing to explain the situation with clarity, and answer any questions no matter how extensive they are. When you leave his office, you know exactly what the problem and solutions are. The staff is organized, professional, friendly and listening. I have been going there with my family for many years and will continue to do so, if possible
