I look for professionalism, efficiency, courtesy, personality and sincerity from a Doctor and their Staff. Happily I can state this is what I have received from Dr. Rivera and the Tri-State Bariatrics (TSB) Team. I drive over a hour for my frequent follow-ups as a recent gastric sleeve patient. The TSB Team makes it worth the trip!

I would highly recommend Dr. Rivera. I am a physician also and I was very impressed. He was extremely professional and thorough. He answered all my questions. I felt he had my best interest at heart and was not quick to jump to a surgical procedure before exhausting medical weight loss. In addition he made sure to do all blood work and EKG before any prescriptions. I had been to two previous bariatric centers and did not receive the quality of care I received from Dr. Rivera.

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!

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!
