Dr Rivera is such an amazing Dr that I used to drive 5 hours to keep seeing him! He was one of the first psychiatrists I ever saw and his level of care made it very difficult for me to ever find a Dr as caring as he was. After seeing him for about 6 or 7 years I had to relocate for a job. I could not for the life of me find a decent doctor in my new town. I tried 4 different psychiatrists and none even came close to comparison, one was just downright nasty. So I decided to make my next appointment with Dr Rivera even though I now lived 5 hours south. It was worth it!

I can just say I went to see Dr. Rivera for a while, and he turned out to not be trustworthy or caring in my case.

Dr. Rivera gives full attention in what are very long (for a psychiatrist) sessions. His care is the best I've found in the entire Central Florida area, such that I make the trek from the center of Orlando to Orange City. He doesn't just throw meds at you as you pass through, as many psychiatrists do. He gets a complete patient history and then tracks your progress. He is always up on the latest journal findings and is quick to advise patients, and offer new treatments. The best in Central FLA
