My son had an emergency procedure performed. Dr. Rivera was kind, explained everything clearly and made us all feel comfortable with what was happening during and after the surgery.

Dr. Rivera, a highly qualified professional, has the rare special qualities of listening, caring, and making patients with serious medical concerns feel comfortable. His medical training and experience are evident in every decision. I discovered him while in an emergency situation; I was scared,, then consoled and treated with care and respect. Two years later my husband went through a similar cancer experience, and he feels the same way. As cancer survivors we both know that the evaluation and steps taken by Dr. Rivera have extended our lives. We are very grateful to both Dr. Rivera and his team, and would unquestionably recommend him to anyone in search of an exceptional urologist.
