What People Say About Dr. Juan Rivera, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I told Dr Rivera up front that I was a coward when it came to needles. He performed a procedure on my toe, using needles, of course, and he went out of his way to relax me and make it as easy as possible. Also, the last time I had this procedure by another doctor it took hours the next day for me to soak the bandages off the wound. It was very painful. Dr Rivera's bandaging came off with almost no effort, no pain....I am so pleased with this Dr.

Dr. Rivera performed surgery on the left foot (amputation of big toe). He did an excellent job & his follow-up has been great. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rivera to all.

Dr. Rivera is an excellent Dr. and I will recommend him to all my friends and family. He did surgery on my foot and to this day there is NO scar and no sign that surgery was ever performed.

I had an appointment for November 6, 2017 at 2:15. I received no reminder call. That morning at approximately 8:30 I called the office to confirm my appointment as I had not heard from anyone. I went to the office and arrived at 2:20. it was my first visit. The young lady at the front desk told me to wait. After waiting several minutes, I sat down. My feet hurt when I stand too long. She comes back a few minutes later, tells me I'm five minutes late and I need to reschedule.

I had pain in my Achilles for about a year. I had gone through many treatments from having to wear a walking boot to even shockwave therapy. Finally Dr RIvera suggested to put me in a cast for 6 weeks. He gave me 2 cortisone injections and I was in a cast for 6wks. Once it was taken off, I still felt some pain. I soaked it in Epsom salt every day for over a week and it helped like Dr Rivera said it would. Thankfully today it's 100% better I still have an occasional pain, but not like what it was

I had a big toe toenail fungus for a few years and had been treated with Lamisil for 2 months, however it keeps on recurring and had gotten worse to the extent that I could no longer wear a closed toe shoe. I went to see Dr. Juan Rivera for consultation and he suggested Laser treatment. I had a one session Laser treatment which did not hurt at all. The next day the pain was gone and the pain had not recurred at all. Now I can wear my close toe shoes. The result was amazing.

Dr. Rivera is a great doctor, I have been seeing him for a while now do to a diabetic ulcer on my foot. He is very caring in concerned about his patients. Out of all of my doctors he is the only one to call me on a Saturday to see how I was doing. The New Port Richey office staff is so wonderful. I enjoy going to the office because they make you feel like family. When you first walk in they greet you by your first name which makes you feel at home right away I highly recommend Dr. Rivera

My mom is 89 and has severe calluses and she had her first appointment with Dr. Rivera this morning. I can't explain how grateful to have been referred to Dr. Rivera. Her calluses are severe, she even has them under her nails along with a giant one under her foot and the pain and sensitivity makes it impossible for her to walk. He was gentle and understood her points of pain and sensitivity and for the first time she didn't cry while having her calluses and nails trimmed.
