Dr. Rivera has in my opinion never seemed to show interest in me. I was referred because of an abnormal EKG at the time I was to have rotator cuff surgery. He ordered a blood test and the results were very high for sugar. I told Dr. Rivera that I had not fasted at the time of my blood test and I had not been informed to fast before. I explained this to Dr. Rivera and he said that it wouldn't really make that big a difference and gave me a prescription of Fenofibrate. At my next visit to Dr. Rivera I told him that I was allergic to the Fenobriate. My blood work at this time after fasting showed very little sugar. At my last visit on Dec. 20th I had to leave at 2:30 due to another doctor's appointment at 2:45 pm. My appointment with Dr. Rivera was scheduled for 1:15 pm. I arrived at 1:00 pm. Received an EKG within the first 15 minutes and then I waited. I asked the nurse about how much longer because of my next appointment. She said that I was next. At 2:30 when I was walking out Dr. Rivera came out of a back room and wanted to know where I was going. I explained and he talked to me for about 5 minutes and told me to get my blood work done by Dr. Johnson, my primary doctor. This is very disconcerting for me and I feel that I need to see another doctor.

The doctor provided a several page summary of our visit indicating what medications should be continued and discontinued. Part of those instructions were confusing and needed explanation after the appointment had concluded. This was done through a call to the nurse on duty which better explained the instructions. I also felt the doctor could have been more engaging with me although it could be more of 'style' issue of the doctor. There certainly was nothing he said or did that caused me consternation. I would have certainly wanted know if he (doctor) received any of the tests that were requested from my previous cardiologist. There was no mention of this during our appointment.
