He accomadated me for surgery and location because I have a special needs daughter and a husband home recovering from surgery. I did not hesitate because I had my other hand operated on by him. I found him compassionate, caring efficient, professional and I would recommend him to anyone.

in Boston, MA |
Dr. Rivlin is a very caring, compassionate person and an outstanding surgeon. I have no words to explain how grateful I am that he had decided to replant my finger after I was sent home from two other hospitals, stating that they cannot help me. He did an amazing job! In 7 to 8 hours surgery he was able to put my finger back, 12 hours after the accident. Despite of all odds, operation was great success and today my finger is almost completely recovered. Thank you Dr. Rivlin. Thank you!
