What People Say About Dr. Michael Rivner, MD
RecentMost Helpful
The first time I saw Dr. Rivner he spent several hours with me. In each follow up since then he has spent at least an hour carefully evaluating me. He does not diagnose a person without indisputable data and so for some diseases like ALS, you may see him over a long period before you have a diagnosis. Better to take time than to deliver a wrong diagnosis especially regarding a disease like ALS. He is an expert in his field and I trust the care I receive from him completely.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rivner’s for about 15 years. He is by far the best doctor I have ever seen. He is so smart and he takes his time. He never makes you feel rushed or not able to ask questions. And he is an extremely compassionate and caring doctor. He cares about your emotional well being as much as your physical condition. I was so blessed to have been referred to him for my peripheral neuropathy. Thanks to him I was able to walk again! And his work with ALS is his passion.

I have seen Dr. Rivner twice. In November for my initial appointment. He spent almost 7 hours with me. Unbelievable! Then for my follow-up in January, he spent another 90 minutes. His attention to me has been incredible. What more can I say?
