Dr. Rivera is helping us understand what is happening with our 7-year-old daughter. She has directed us to continue to work with with while pursuing help from a rheumatologist as well. During the appointment, she spoke directly to our daughter and thoroughly explained all of her upcoming procedures. She was confidence inspiring as well as being kind and informative to a child who wants to better understand what is happening to her and her body.

Dedicated, intelligent, gentle, and kind. I couldn’t disagree more with the reviews here. She uncovered an unrelated auto immune disease in my daughter in infancy. We have been with Dr Rivera for a decade. She has saved my daughter from a lot of pain and suffering. She also kept moving forward with testing until the correct diagnosis was uncovered. I strongly disagree that she throws meds at people. She provides medication extremely appropriately and takes time to discuss appropriate dose.

She shows up late, carrying a basket of flowers. When I asked if her recommendation was excessive she responded with "do whatever you want". I am not a doctor so I was relying on her experiences to come up with a solution. Instead she stormed out of the room and stated this wasn't going to work that I should just go to children's.

Dr. Rivera seems to be able to handle the "common" conditions but seems very flustered when it comes to something out of the ordinary. Her fix for everything is to add more meds
