Doctor Rivera and his staff have really helped me with my back pain making me feel better than I have in years'
El Paso, TX |
After 12 X-rays, 5 MRI scans and lots of visits with chiropractors, physical therapy and orthopedic surgeons I was referred to Dr. Rivera for pain management. Dr. Rivera took the time to evaluate my condition and based on his expertise performed a procedure that helped me more than I could ever imagine. I've had lower back pain for the past 8 years (always moderate and sometimes severe where I could not even get up from the floor or walk due to the pain) and just now am I pain free thanks to him
El Paso, TX |
