Jensen Beach, FL |
The staff was very polite but the same cannot be said for Dr Rivera. Complete age discrimination. I brought all of my records including all imaging and notes, he asked me my age and looked at NOTHING other than my medication list and proceeded to tell me that I am too young to be taking Oxycodone and that there is no justification for it. I suffer from two herniated dics, severe facet arthropathy, and spinal stenosis (he wouldn't know since he never even looked at any of my reports) stay away!

Horrible bedside manner. Rude and was running 45 mins late and never apologized for the wait. He rushed me and was extremely rude. He wouldn't address my concerns and rushed me. Would never recommend him to anyone.

It takes a few minutes to get used to his slight accent. He is an extremely caring Doctor who really wants to help his patients. He is very gentle and patient.
He was a nightmare. He asked questions and did not wait to hear answers. He told me fibromyalgia was a social disease. Absolutely no empathy. I would never refer anyone to him. He should not be treating people in pain. He has one purpose. It is to sell expensive injections which are unproven and are not covered by insurance.
