Have no Fear - Dr. Rivera's Here! Dr. Rivera takes all the worries and apprehension away from the moment you meet him. When my primary called to get an appointment for me, he came back to say, "Woo Hoo, you got the BEST EVER!" I knew from then that I would be in great hands. My gallbladder removal went so smoothly and recuperation was a breeze. Dr. Rivera is the expert you want!!

Dr. Rivera removed my gallbladder a month ago and everything went easier than I had expected. I'm only 18 and kept waking up with severe middle back pain and a burning in my chest. After several doctors visits and no diagnosis, I found myself in the emergency room one morning. After learning of my bad gallbladder I went to Dr. Rivera and he was extremely professional and knowledgeable, I honestly had no concerns. It's now been a month and I'm back to great health.

Dr. Rivera did my gastric sleeve surgery and was wonderful. I came through with flying colors. After I went home I had very little pain and no nausea. I was back at work in no time. He was very thorough with his explanations and took his time with me and my wife. I will highly recommend him.
