Dr. Rivera delivered me on the day of my birth, and was my primary doctor the following 23 years of my life -until I graduated college. Then he insisted I was no longer a kid and had to get a grown up doctor. Bummer ?? He helped me through countless sinus infections, ear infections, the flu, and stints in the hospital. He is an extremely caring and genuine doctor, and I am better because God put him in my life. He truly cares about the welfare of his patients, and he knows his stuff! Five stars

Hands down my favorite pediatrician! I have two girls who were in the age ranges of newborn - 4 years old during the time they saw him (we just moved). I could not say enough good things about him and his staff (and I'm picky, having a Physician's Assistant as a mother)! Dr. Rivera was absolutely amazing. He was kind, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. He took the time to explain everything and ask if I had questions and waited for me to reply. He never made me feel patronized or rushed.
