06/05/14 5 5 5 5 He's one of the best around Los Angeles. Whenever I call about any concerns, he returns my calls quickly. He's a very responsive doctor and never makes me feel like I'm being a neurotic first time mom - which I probably am being. He's reassuring and brings me back down from crazy, all while being gentle but firm and rationale. He explains things in a way that makes sense, never talking over my head or using medical jargon. If he does use a medical terminology, he explains it in a clear manner. But the biggest plus is that my kid is really comfortable with Dr. Rivera. She likes him a great deal, smiles, and pays attention to him. He talks to her directly and makes her feel like she's not just a kid, but a person who deserves to be spoken with and not to. I really can't imagine a better person/ care provider.

18/06/13 5 5 5 5 He is, hands down, the best doctor we've had. He takes his time listening and explaining. He's super sweet and gentle with our kid. He is VERY thorough. Best of all he goes the EXTRA MILE to help us! We needed a medical device and the medical delivery company had made a mistake to delivery it the next day. Rivera was on the phone for hours until late night getting them to deliver to us the same night. The medical company delivered just before midnight and Rivera called us just to make sure everything arrived. I'm so happy we have him as a pediatrician!

22/02/12 5 4 5 5 My husband and I love this doctor for our two children. He is very pleasant and cordial and always spends his time explaining everything to us. We never feel rushed with him and we always feel like he genuinely cares about his patients. Unfortunately, our employer changed health insurances and we had to leave him this year, but we hope to be back to him soon. We have a feeling no other pediatrician is going to compare to Dr. Rivera.

01/11/10 5 5 5 5 He is the best pediatrician I've ever had! He takes his time, explains development in detail and never makes you, as a parent, feel as if you're asking stupid questions. He's great with my kids and I highly recommend him! He takes his time and never rushes through an appointment.
