Dr Rivera...read your reviews!!! Your staff is rude rude rude!!! They bill unnecessarily to get back at you if you complain and don't return calls. If my bill goes to collections because of your staff (insurance says paid) I WILL SUE!!!

Dr. Rivera's excellent, professional and friendly approach to medical care was OUTSTANDING !. Dr. Rivera was able to put my wife, a stroke patient at ease, solved her painful and compromised walking ability in a single visit. He has our utmost respect.

I went from being able to tolerate standing and walking for 15 minutes, to walking 49 miles over 4 days in Boston. For more than 6 years, I lived with my pain at 7/10. I am now pain free. I'm looking forward to going back to work and getting off disability. No other podiatrist would see or treat me with my rare disease. Dr. Rivera has given me my life back, and there are no words for how grateful I am. I only wish I found him sooner.

Excellent Doctor! My 9 year old son recently had to have Achilles Tendon Lenghthening Surgery on both legs. Dr. Rivera has provided the best care before, during and after the surgery. Almost no wait times. Friendly. Compassionate. Skilled. And his front office staff is wonderful as well! Can’t recommend him enough.

Horrible Dr who shouldn't be practicing medicine. I only needed a routine bunionectomy surgery and instead he convinced me to do a more invasive lapidus arthrodosis with 2 screws in my foot and a big awful scar that looked like a 5yr old did it. I was on crutches for 4 months when he said only 2 months and I've had complications ever since and have had to have 3 other corrective surgeries. This has totally changed my quality of life and I have constant pain in my foot everyday. HORRIBLE
