Does not commcate with patients. My pain level has INCREASED over the past six months instead of decreasingly. My quality of life has DECREASED. This is NOT what I expected going to a pain clinic. What a waste of time.

The doctor is great. The office people suck. Never return phone calls. After leaving three messages they finally got back to me. She was completely rude and unprofessional. Sad such a good doctor has so unprofessional office staff.

I called at noon today, Thursday, as my doctor just referred me to pain medicine today. Left a message...never received call back :( The office is closed tomorrow. The website says they typically have same day appt. availability. Though I wasn't expecting an appt. today, since I called so early in the day I was expecting a return call. So, looks like I will be calling another doctor's office tomorrow. Sad as this office is so convenient to my home and work and same building as my PT.

Dr. Rivero is so compassionate and actually listens to you!! He makes you feel like you matter and you are not just an appointment. He has helped me with my pain tremendously and I couldn't be more grateful!!! I would recommend him to anyone that is suffering!

One of the most caring professional doctors and staff one could ever expect in today's medical field. Dr. Rivero I would definitely recommend for anyone needing pain management. My physician recommended him when he couldn't help anymore , and I am so glad he did. The office assistants were super nice. Dr. Rivero' s nurse was very professional and personable explaining the procedure perfectly. The injections were painless when I was thinking the opposite. 10 stars is more like it.

Good treatment for my back pain issue. Horrible service by the office administration staff. They are unable to return phone calls. I tried for a month to get a medication issue (not even a pain medication) worked out with them and my insurance and it was never resolved. When I was finally tired of not getting a call back I went to the office to confront them. The ladies in the office didn't know how to pronounce the names of the medications and I was immediately told to find a new doctor.

My first visit was early in the Month and I could not have asked for a better Pain Dr.....His staff is wonderful, friendly and very helpful and always smiling....The Dr. took his time with me listened to all my pain problems and never spoke over me....He never pushed things on me that I do not agree with...Highly Recommend

I had my first appointment yesterday and I drove three hours. The office staff was very nice, I did not wait long to see the doctor. He was fast but did an injection and it hardly hurt and is helping. He helped me with medication, so all in all it was a great experience. I hope that he continues to help me as I just want my life back.If you are honest and in real pain he will help you. Thank you DR. Beccerra!

This Doctor does not listen. I had been taking oral pain medication for my condition (Norco & Tramadol). First visit he prescribed pain patches (Fentanyl). I tried one and got really sick. 2 weeks later, I gave him back all of the patches except one. He again prescribed another pain patch ("different" medication. Half of the potency of the Fentanyl). I expressed that I am afraid to put the patch on. Said he couldn't prescribe anything else. No other options given.

I have been very happy with Dr. Rivero's treatment of my back, hip, groin, and nerve pain. I trust & appreciate him so much that I recommended him to my father who has seen a bazillion docs, without getting any relief. Dad got some relief at his first visit 2 weeks ago! Also, "hats off" to his awesome staff who do fabulously even when the waiting room is full! Thank you Dr. Rivero & staff!

The person who gave a bad review must have seen a different doctor. Dr. Rivero is nice, patient and competent. I have seen a lot of drs. with bad tableside manners, and he certainly is not one of them. Support staff were highly effective, and they managed to get me an emergency appointment rather quickly. I would highly recommend Dr. Rivero and his office.

I would highly recommend Dr. Rivero. I am a retired nurse and felt like he was very polite and professional. He did a test injection on my first visit and got my treatment underway. I am done with pills and ready for a real solution to my pain. He is my answer!

I have been with Dr Rivero since he came to Keystone - he is AMAZING. He is kind and considerate when it comes to the patients and their problems. He is a very down to earth doctor. Don't try to fool him or his girls at the front - they can smell the lies before you walk in!! Anyone who claims to have had a bad experience with doctor Rivero must have just only been looking for prescriptions or not got what they wanted! He's the best out there- hands down.

He is extremely rude. Talks over patients and is only looking to get you in and out as quick as possible. Dr Rivero has very little respect for the feelings of his patients. Does not take the time to listen and understand what is wrong, but would rather jump to conclusions and push you out to get on to the next patient. Would definitely NOT recommend.

Very inconsiderate. Tries to see as many patients as he can. Doesn't listen rushes thru appointments. Doesn't care how patient feels, assumes he KNOWS how patient is feeling. Very rude and on high horse. Accuses someone of many back surgeries and in a lot of pain and on pain meds for 10 years of "seeking drugs" Do not waste your time! Drs. like him are a dime a dozen. Does not bring anything new or helpful to the table. Just tries to bring you into the practice to add to his patient list.

I have already recommended him to everyone i know, my whole family sees dr. Rivero. Of any dr i have ever been to he is by far the best. He truly cares about his patients and does whatever is necessary to make sure you are comfortable and taken care of. He will sit there and talk to you forever and listen to every word you say, not many dr will do that. He also has an outstanding, friendly, and efficient staff at his office!!
