Dr. Vivero did my mom's surgery... she had a cyst on her voice box. Very good and friendly doctor.

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!

Very happy with the results of my vocal chord surgery. Dr. Vivero is extremely knowledgable and answered all my questions without making me feel rushed. Excellent Dr. and very friendly staff.

Dr. Vivero is phenomenal physician. I highly recommend him. I've seen several ENTs over the past couple years with the same reoccurring issue and he was the first to give a possible solution. After years of congestion Dr. Vivero completely relieved my symptoms with a quick 15 minute office procedure.

I would like recommend Dr Richard Vivero for any ENT procedures. Dr Vivero was polite provided excellent care, explained the procedure, and followed up after my operation.

I was referred to Dr. Vivero by another ENT who suggested that I have my vocal cord cyst removed as my voice quality had been deteriorating. I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Vivero and his staff in his Coral Gables office. I had a great experience from the initial scheduling of my surgery all the way to my follow up visit two weeks after the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Vivero for any and all ENT voice related issues. The removal of my cyst didn't even hurt and I healed quickly.

Had a great experience with Dr.Vivero and his staff. They performed my procedure swiftly and expertly. Healing was great, and Dr. Vivero's prognosis was right upon getting my results. His team is very nice as well.

I recently had sinus surgery with Dr. Vivero (deviated septum and turbinate reduction), and strongly recommend him. He did a great job managing my expectations about what would happen, and how long the recovery would be. His follow up has been outstanding, and most importantly, the results have made a great difference in my life. Highly recommended!
He's very nice and explains everything very well. He's very thorough
