Dr. Rivera is an asset to your clinic. He is direct, professional, and I value his opinions and advice. This regular follow up, check up went smooth and was much more timely than the last one. Quite an improvement. I would like to see results of EKG or any other diagnostic test results on my patient portal so they can be printed and shared with other professionals involved in my health decisions.
