Dr. Rivera is a good doctor. However, his front office staff is the rudest staff I have ever encountered. I have been trying to get my medication adjusted for over 3 weeks now. I am showing signs of complications. I am put on hold for over 15 minutes. I've been hung up on several times. I can't get a return call from the the nurse or doctor. I doubt they are getting my messages. I've tried to schedule an appointment and the earliest they will schedule me is for a month in a half.
