    How was your appointment with Dr. Rivas?

    Mar 29, 2019
    I would highly recommend Dr Rivas. When I was at my sickest and in dire need he was at my bedside in icu daily. He helped the TP team in all my day to day severe medical issues. There were many. Besides being a great guy he is highly intelligent and expert in his craft.
