I was initially skeptical about seeing a DO instead of an MD, but after some bad experiences with MDs, and anundiagnosed stomach issue, I thought I'd give it a try. In retrospect, this was the absolute best way to go. Dr. Rivera took his time, asking me many questions about various aspects of my health, and we spoke at length about my family's health, my lifestyle, and other things that could be contributing to my issues. He very clearly outlined what he felt our next steps should be, as well as steps after that, and last resort steps if necessary. He was also very upfront about what the costs of certain tests would be, and whether or not he felt they were necessary, which I GREATLY appreciated. Felt incredibly taken care of!

About Dr. Angel Rivera

Dr. Angel Rivera grew up in a household that encouraged proper nutrition and good health. As he was being trained in medicine, he felt there was a gap between prevention through lifestyle choices and treatment of acute disease. As he looked for avenues to correct this disconnect, he discovered functional and integrative medicine, which he felt was an extremely effective way to combine both prevention and treatment to better serve his patients. Dr. Rivera provides primary care services to patients of age 18 and older. He approaches all of his patients with the same care and professionalism. If patients are interested in utilizing an integrative and function treatment approach, then he employs those methods. In addition to traditional care, he also does specialty testing to shed light on a patient’s disease process which allows him to better diagnose and treat my patients. You will see that Dr. Rivera takes his time to make every effort getting to know his patients as individuals. He evaluates not only what is bothering you, but also how you live, what food you eat, how you sleep, your level of stress and the activities and hobbies you enjoy. There is no rush when seeing his patients. He completes a thorough evaluation and works together with you to create your personalized care plan. Having you involved in the decision making process is extremely important to you success, and no one knows that better than Dr. Rivera.
