I highly recommend Dr. Rivera. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, comforting and reassuring. I learned somethingnew every session. He explained the purpose of each exercise and pushed me to challenge myself. I'm grateful and thankful for Dr. Rivera and his team.

Excellent service provider I would recommend anyone. Rene has taken care of all my soccer team (including me) and we have all been very satisfied with his work. Thanks Rene, I hope I will not have to come again but if I do, i am sure that will be great.
