very pleasant from front desk, nurses, doctor and out the door. Dr. Rivera. is not my primary cardiologist at legacy but his prifessionalism, knowleddge and "bedside manner" are exceptional. He adjusted my medication to help my out of control blood pressure. Thank you all for your quick and caring response.

doctor missed the opportunity to open my file, to re-check my blod pressure, to let me know about my EKG done o that day, I came with high blood pressure, lots of headache, and i feel the only thing done was changing medication because i was the saying the previous medication was ot working. lack of concern of patient condition.
