Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Rivas was very thorough and explained everything in detail. Concern if I understood the point she was making. My daughter went with me and she was extremely impressed of the time and manner in which Dr. Rivas conducted the medical appointment.

Arrived on time for my appointment and checked in. I was taken in to a room within 5-10 minutes. Dr Rivas came in to the room right after all paperwork and medication were verified. We discussed my condition thoroughly and she answered every question I had. She is always open for questions and does a good job explaining her answers.

Dr Rivas Rodriguez is amazing. I wish it hadn't taken me so long to find her. She LISTENS ! She takes her time.you'd never know she has other patients waiting for her time when you are in the exam room with her. She is legitimately concerned with how you are doing/feeling. She is so knowledgeable and willing to explain. I could go on and on. She makes you feel like family.
