Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I would highly recommend Dr Rivas. When I was at my sickest and in dire need he was at my bedside in icu daily. He helped the TP team in all my day to day severe medical issues. There were many. Besides being a great guy he is highly intelligent and expert in his craft.

Very impersonal & inconsiderate of patient. After never having met the doc (I was told that's not what they do) and after waiting 4 hours in an overcrowded, dirty and smelly waiting room (bathrooms were even more filthy) to have a procedure done, I finally met the doctor only to clash very badly. I think he was running late and needed to make up the time, so he was hoping I would back out.... and I solved his problem and did. I really felt like a piece of meat on a conveyor belt just waiting.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr. Rivas to any patient who has liver issues, and after several doctors prior, have been blessed to have him as our leading doctor. I have yet to meet a doctor with such bedside manner and dedication to help their patients. If you are under his care, you are in good hands.
