What People Say About Dr. Humberto Rivas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Rivas has been all 3 of my children's primary pediatrician since they where born. He has always been great with them. Never once have they been scared or not wanted to go to the doctor. He has a great staff, his nurses are just as awesome, you can tell they sincerely care about the children! When my children are sick he as always made the best judgement calls for the health of my chiId. He is also great about not making us wait forever in the waiting area. We are typically in and out of there in a very timely manner. If you are looking for a great pediatrician Dr. Rivas is the place to go!

My child has had three sick visits with Dr. Rivas, two of which he allowed my child to run over 102 fever for over a 7 day period. We have dealt with strep throat twice and an inner and outer ear infection in both left and right ear ( same infection ). Of these visits, when I asked about getting a stronger antibiotic or an antibiotic shot, he disregarded my request. I know of other patients that he gives antibiotic shots to right away to help their child get better quicker. All should be equal.

He doesn't like to treat problems with kids. Is judgemental and degrading. Doesn't give good evaluations,looks at data on computer and dismisses patients without looking at them.
