The experience I had for my situation was beyond excellent. Dr. River was extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He explained everything very well, and performed the surgery even better. I had less pain and fewer spots along my spine that hurt constantly. I am so happy I was able to have him for s surgeon. I will be back for my other surgeries as well. Thank you so very much Dr. River

Dr. Rivero took the time to answer all of our questions and gave us recommendations that we were very happy with.

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.

Misdiagnosed a failed spinal fusion with plate and screw movement as carpel tunnel. Dismissive, condescending, opinionated...need I say more?
