What Dr. Rivera’s Patients Say


Dr. Rivera- I am truly grateful.  You took an otherwise unpleasant situation and quickly and painlessly restored me back to excellent health.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart and appreciate the tender care you extended me and my family.  I would highly recommend Dr. Julio Rivera for Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery.



I really can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rivera, the office personnel and/or the billing department. His office and staff are phenomenal and to have that kind of trust in them during a difficult situation, makes decisions so much easier and less stressful!



This office is AWESOME! From my first meeting with Dr. Rivera (a.k.a. “my lifesaver”) he was so caring and professional. So it’s understandable why his staff is great. The staff is professional and knowledgeable and the office is well kept. Please keep up the good work you do here.
