Unless you don't mind waiting all day to see this doctor, things will turn out fine. Doctor Rivera guarantees "same day" service. Please keep in mind that his office hours are from 8 am to 5 pm most weekdays. Therefore, you might wait as many as 9 hours in order to see this doctor. Dr. Rivera made a poor business decision. He has decided to allow his business to expand at the cost of being unable to offer enough time for each patient, new or old, to get the care all patients deserve!!

I would recommend Dr. Rivera very highly........I have been a patient for a few years now and all of my experiences have been totally without problems. Until yesterday when I had a regular 3 mo. appt. re: my pessary, and my dr. asst. was Betsy as Nicole was on maternity leave. During the catheter exam for a urine sample, it was the worst ever. Very painful. I bled all the way home to the keys. I will be back but .......... Sorry but I was not a happy traveler
