in Tomkins Cove, NY |
I met Dr. Rivera 6 years ago when he implanted my Lap Band and have had nothing but Excellent experiences with him. He is the kind of Doctor who really listens to you and isn't in a hurry to get to his next patient. I highly recommend him!
Fishkill, NY |
I met with this doctor several times regarding stomach bypass surgery and he prescribed a series of tests including one needing a prescription. Despite numerous attempts to obtain the prescription and repeatedly requesting he and his staff follow up - I have still not received the much needed prescription and my request is completely ignored by the doctor - the staffs only response is the doctor has not responded to the requests. What kind of service is this? This is poor service. Terrible!
