Boise, ID |
Dr. Rivers always spends as much time with me as I require to get all of my questions answer. She is very thorough and listens to what I say and responds accordingly. I highly recommend her.

I couldn't be happier since I came to meet "Dr Mary"! She helped me reduce my seizure frequency by an unbelievable amount, and that has only made me feel better overall. Thank you, Dr River...I'm so glad you "nagged at me" to change meds! She also speaks to me (not AT am) and only uses little words when I ask her to explain something...yet another thing that makes her outstanding.

Outstanding doctor. She always takes the time to discuss the issues fully with me and makes medical decisions based on both my needs and good medical science. I have sent everyone needing a Neurologist to her.

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.
in Visalia, CA |
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.
