I have been a patient of Dr. Vivero for about 2 years. He finally convinced me to undergo a surgical procedure to remove a cyst on my vocal cords and alleviate the pain and constant hoarseness. He is very knowledgeable and the wait time is about 10-15 minutes. I would recommend Dr. Vivero to anyone suffering from a vocal cord disorder.

I went in for a second surgery for an issue I had previously had & been treated by a different doctor. The surgery with Dr. Vivero was not as involved as the first time, but was a totally different experience. The first time I had a lot of pain and a pretty long recovery. The surgery with Dr. Vivero was amazing, I had NO pain or even discomfort, the surgery center was great and much less expensive than the hospital setting I had used the first time. I think he is a very talented surgeon.

I saw Dr. Vivero the first time in July, 2016, after being diagnosed with vocal chord cancer and going through 6 months of alternative cancer treatments. I had only a few tiny spots remaining on my vocal chords, and Dr. Vivero performed laser surgery to remove them. I had a second laser surgery on my vocal chords in March of 2017 because he had found a few new spots. I have been cancer free since then but continue to see him every 8 weeks. He's an expert at putting the tube down my throat.

Dr. Vivero is an excellent doctor, tremendous bed side manner, very dedicated to his patients. His recommendation that I have surgery for a cancerous tumor on my vocal chord sooner rather than late saved my life. Ii would highly recommend Dr. Vivero to anyone needing an expert in the field of ENT.

Dr. Viviero and his staff are probably the most professional in South Florida. From the moment you walk in to the solution of your condition they are the best. Dr. Vivero's expertise demonstrated that I was confident that he would take care of my situation. IF YOU HAVE A GRANULOMA ON YOUR VC, Dr. Vivero es the best solution to your problem. Great people person and extremely punctual. I highly recommend you visit him, Thanks Emile

My thoughts when I had the surgery where great. But as I'm here suffering from an inexperienced doctor of how he affected my parathyroid glands for the rest of my life bc he wasn't experienced surgically. I am mad, sad bc of what I have to go through now. And him telling me bc my thyroid was so sticky and slimy which made no sense to me at all. After 2 years I came to realization that his lack of surgical expertise messed me up for life. I will never go back to him again.

Wow a nice, caring doctor in Miami! I thought that no longer existed but I was pleasantly surprised. I only had to wait 5 minutes (a doctor that actually respects your time!!) and he really listened to me and correctly diagnosed me after years of pain and suffering and misdiagnoses. He even called me a few days later to see how I was doing. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised by this! I do not think a doctor has ever called me to see how I was doing! I highly reccommend him!
