She seemed very kind and is a gentle touch, but I'd like to think I came on an off day: the office was packed and more than one person was asked if they would be willing to see another provider. Ispent about an hour with a technician and about 2 minutes with the doctor. Overall, all the tests that needed to be performed were performed, it just all seemed a little hectic.

The office was busy and the wait time expanded to more than 30 minutes. However, once I met dr. Riveros I realized she was so worth waiting - professional, warm and helpful. Thank you.

Great appointment! There was some confusion about my actual appointment date/time due to something with the computer, but they still took me and I didn't have to wait too long. I did get a parking ticket outside. I was only 4minutes late to my meter, so make sure you stay on top of that. Dr. Riveros was great.

I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lorena Riveros very much. She was very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. However, I was very frustrated with the overall organization and efficiency of the staff. My appointment was at 10am and I finished at 11:50am.However, after the appointment was over and it took an additional 40+ minutes of speaking with 4 different staff members in order to get a copy of my glasses prescription and figure out whether I had a co-pay or not for my visit. Because of this, I ended up missing my next doctor appointment that was scheduled for 1230PM.
