This is one of the best doctors I have ever had. His examination was more extensive than any ENT I have ever gone to. Thank God! He found stage 1 cancer in a very remote area of my throat. He saved my life. Thorough, Knowledgeable, personable, they don't get better than doctor Rivera!

The receptionist can be more friendly and accommodating. I heard several people enter and said no one was picking up the phone and they had non chalant attitude. I had to ask her about my paper works and it took the reception a little longer then needed to make copy of my id's. I had to ask twice was she done. But my appointment with the audiologist and Dr. Rivera was nice.

It was my first time. Him as a doctor not problem, he's a good professional. But the waiting time it's tremendous ridiculous. I was feeling I was like in Jail, with the door close in the very cool room for 45minutes, no courtesy to the patient letting me know the reason why I had to wait so long. I’ll rather to be watching TV in the waiting room. I do understand that there is some times a problem while you seeing another patients but be a kind of polite let us know why we waiting too long. . Don't just abandon a patient inside the room. Thank you.

I have made several visits and at least 2 of them I had to wait over an hour. The procedure utilized for removing the wax from my ears was not nearly as effective as my prior doctor who retired.

I waited 20 minutes in the waiting room to be called to the exam room. I find this to be usual. I waited forty five minutes to see the Doctor before I opened the door of the room and spotted Dr Rivera going into another room. Informed him of the wait. He stated he would check on the delay. After I waited another 40 minutes, I decided to leave. On my way out I saw Dr Rivera and three associates standing in a hallway. Told the Dr that I was leaving. He had no knowledge of me having an appointment with him regarding one of his specialties. He had no other patients and offered to see me. I agreed.

I came from an ENT doctor who broke sterile field way too many times. Dr. Rivera was my second opinion. I will be going back especially after finding out he teaches/volunteers at USF - BONUS!! Lets just say, if a doctor is able to teach and volunteer at a College, he's credible in all areas of questions that may concern expertise and practice.

Dr. Rivera was extremely informative concerning my Thyroid. He took his time with me answering all my questions and reassured me. I previously saw another doctor who he said was excellent and did not want to take away from him. Dr. Rivera is kind, humble, experienced, very knowledgeable and professional. I appreciate his expertise and kindness he showed me. His office was full of patience and I was still taken back to see him under 20 minutes, then seen within 5 minutes. My visit with him was worth my time and long drive. I appreciated the email and text reminders for my appointment also. Thank you Zocdoc!
