Dr. Rivera

THis is Max and his AMAZING Dr.
Dr. Rivera is the third Pediatrician we have gone to since Max was born. The first took 8 days to return a phone call ( bye bye )
The Second made is feel bad that we had a lot of questions ( see ya )
and the third is our good luck charm!
He came in - washed his hands and greeted us with smiles and introduced himself and shook our hands. ( the other two neglected to do that - and it seemed they didn't really care about the parents of Max )
Dr. Rivera is gentle, Kind, thoughtful, highly prepared, patient, easy to talk with and ask questions, Max loves him, and that counts for a LOT, and he calls back right away! We have been blown away by his bed side manner, his attention to Max and to us, and his overall care of our child.

he works at

It's such a relief to have a good doctor. Our pediatrician recently left the practice to move on to another job and I was, well kind of shattered. As it turns out though, her replacement is wonderful as well and specializes in children with special needs. So glad you've found someone you feel good about.

Glad you found a doctor who genuinely cares about Max! It makes all the difference in the world!

It makes all the difference in the world to find a pediatrician that will take the time, answer questions, and doesn't treat you like you should know everything!

If only he were here in VA! I'm looking for a new one!
