Dr. Rivero took the time to answer all of our questions and gave us recommendations that we were very happy with.
in Green Valley, AZ |
Very professional, caring and has the time to discuss your case with. I would not hesitate to let him operate on me again should the need arise.
Tucson |
Misdiagnosed a failed spinal fusion with plate and screw movement as carpel tunnel. Dismissive, condescending, opinionated...need I say more?
