This was my first time seeing Dr. Rivera as I was looking for a new family doctor. She was friendly and kind throughout my encounter. She did a thorough job with my physical exam and ordered necessary blood work which wasdone in house- this made things much easier for me so I didn’t have to go to another location to get blood drawn. The entire visit felt quite quick, as there was no waiting time when I went for the appointment. As soon as I entered the office, I filled out paperwork and even before I was finished, I was called in to get my vitals taken. I felt comfortable with her overall.

The doctor was very rushed. She did not take the time to talk to my daughter about her reasons for visiting. She hurried through the visit. The total visit was maybe 10 minutes. Sad.

Dr. Rivera was rude to my daughter. She rushed through the appointment. The whole appointment was 5 minutes. She didn't even take the time to listen to the reason for the visit. This is not the first time that the doctorhas acted this way. Her "bedside manner" is zero.

I got a great impression from the nurse who has seen me both times I've gone to see Dr. Rivera. In fact, if I could rate her separately, I would give her 5 stars. However, Dr. Rivera herself seemed detached bothtimes I've been to visit. In addition, I called between visits because the problem I went to see her for was worsening and asked if I could speak to her on the phone, and she wouldn't even come to the phone and they wouldn't give me an appointment earlier than a week from then. The receptionist gave me generic advice, and my condition continued to worsen. I call back a week later to complain and got a new appointment for two hours later. She seems competent in her knowledge of medicine, but I would prefer to go somewhere where I actually feel valued and listened to and not like I'm being herded like cattle.

I have liked Dr. Rivera from the beginning. She listens carefully and thinks about your problem before giving an answer. If she is not sure, she will look up your problem and then give you an answer. Dr. Rivera has noproblem sending you to a specialist if it is something she cannot handle. She is up to date on the new vaccines. I hope she remains in Dayton for a long time to come.
