Excellent physician! Explains all issues plain and succinctly, has great "bed side manner", and is extremely pleasant. The staff he has is great as well. Been seeing him for quite a few years now and have never been disappointed. The office is very accomodating when making appointments and when dealing with prescriptions. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Rivera-Morales.

I met Dr Morales when I was in ICU and he was able to find out why I was so sick, while 2 other lung drs missed it. He is great, explains everything, & has great bedside manners. His staff is very professional and friendly.

My parents have been with Dr. Rivera for years. Thursday, 5 days ago. My dad called who's 78yrs old. Still is waiting for a returned phone call for my mother who is really sick. I took her to the ER on Friday, meds aren't working so I called this morning at 9am. Still no returned phone call. The staff was extremely rude. Frankly I will be looking for a new doctor for them. We're currently in the waiting room at the ER.
