I highly recommend Dr Rivera she is a good dr and is always answering my questions.
in Bakersfield, ca |
She is very rude. After 5 years all the sudden decided not to see me anymore with my 3rd pregnancy and sent me to sage brush saying I was high risk when I really wasn't. Pretty much told me to get out of her office and never come back. She has no bed side manners. I love the nurse practitioner. She was the only reason I kept going. I wouldn't recommend ever going there.

If I could no stars I would. The staff is horrible and rude. They don't care about their patience. So if I were you I'd save your time and don't schedule and appointment with this horrible office
