    Saw Dr. Rivera for the first time today. I have a severe and pretty complicated injury to my left ankle. I had my foot reattached and broke my femur as well. Dr. Rivera spent over an hour with me explaining the current state of my injury and what my options are. She is so unbelievably smart. I've never had a Dr. spend that much time with me before. I won't see anyone else but her going forward. She is very rare! If you need an ortho for anything foot an ankle related she's your only option.

    Dr Rivera is not only a skilled surgeon, but a great doctor. She performed a successful surgery on my ankle in 2014 and I have returned several times with injuries to my other ankle. She is a very conservative doctor and very personable. I have lived in Miami 25 years and good doctors like her are VERY few and far between here! I share her number with anyone I know with a foot or ankle injury.

    She has no clue what she is doing.....staff is horrible and I had to wait for over 2 hours to be seen! She rushed out of the room because her daughter had ballet! Will not return for any reason what so ever.

    I recently saw Dr. Rivera for an ankle injury and was very pleased with the care and treatment I received. Dr. Rivera explained my injury in simple terms that I could understand and clearly outlined a treatment path to ensure a full and speedy recovery. She has a great demeanor and I was very impressed with her knowledge and expertise. Her staff, too, was very pleasant and helpful with respect to coordinating my physical therapy.

    I WOULD VERY MUCH RECOMMEND DR. RIVERA AS SHE IS A VERY DEDICATED AND ATTENTIVE DOCTOR.
