Dr River has been my neurologist physician for about 9 months and I would rate her expertise and care as outstanding. Over her 30 years of practice, she has acquired premier expertise in the care & treatment of neurological problems and diseases. She takes whatever time is needed to address each patients concerns and questions. I highly recommend Dr River.

I had a problem with the ulnar nerve in my elbow. Dr. River's staff tried to do a test to see the extent of the nerve transmission, but the assistant to Dr. River had no idea what she was doing and fouled the test up. Dr. River then suggested I go to a neuro who could actually do this test in San Francisco. This doctor did a much more thorough examination, the differences were glaring. He sent a report to Dr. River which said I needed immediate surgery but she failed to tell me for two months.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. River's Care Philosophy

As a doctor I want each patient to know that I develop a care plan for them that is unique to their specific needs. My patients are more than the diagnosis they've been given and I want them to know that I care about their overall well-being.
