Dr. Rivera's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rivera "I grew up in Alabama and attended undergraduate, graduate and medical school at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Prior to medical school, I did research in virology, studied business administration and public health, and taught aerobics. Based on my fascination with the brain and nervous system, I decided to study neurology early in my medical training. Having seen the effects of neurologic disorders in my family and friends, I was interested in helping people with these conditions. I have now lived in the Atlanta area for over five years and consider it home. I love getting to know our patients and helping them understand and control their neurologic conditions so that they may have a better quality of life. I manage and treat patients with many neurological disorders, and my special area of interest is epilepsy. I find it extremely satisfying that with proper diagnosis and treatment it is possible to give someone who has been experiencing a poor quality of life (for example, due to undiagnosed or untreated seizures, strokes or headaches) the opportunity to work, drive and function in society and to get the most out of life. I am also interested in studying how neurologic conditions affect learning, memory and cognitive function."
