He ignored the severity of the pain in my mom's legs until it was too late. I wish I could attach a picture of my mom's legs the day after she saw mr. rivers, and the day I had to call the ER to get the situation handled. She almost had complete kidney failure and she has been seeing him for years. He is old and just cashing a check to pay his liability insurance. This guy needs to retire already! Don't go to him, or send anyone you care about under his care....please!

I just read the review from Addison Illinois. I'm sorry your husband ended up needing cardiac surgery. It really surprises me that Dr. Rivers didn't refer him to a cardiologist. I have been seeing Dr. Rivers for the last 20 years. I think he's a very good Dr but if I had one complaint it would be that he always refers me to a specialist for things. I'm guessing he at very least told him to monitor his chest pain and go to ER if it worsens.

My Husband has been a patient of Dr. Rivers for the last ten years or more and has very high cholesterol. He has never changed his medication in all those years. He recently went to see him for chest pains and this Doctor told him he had indigestion. Any other Dr. would have recommended an EKG or something considering my Husbands history as well as high blood pressure. Long story short, my Husband had double bypass surgery eight days ago at Northwestern Central Dupage hospital. Not a good Dr.!!

I have been a patient of Dr. River's for about 30 years. He has just the right combination of compassion and professionalism. He is patient with the many questions that are asked and explains the answers in scientific detail as well as understandable English. He is a great doctor!
in Aurora, IL |
He has been our family physician for 30 years. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, kind and practical. He explains his thought process and discusses options. He advocates for his patients, and appreciates when they advocate for themselves.
