He is the BEST!!! I have seen numerous Doctors in the past with no relief. He is the only Doctor that has given me relief from my back and neck pain. He also has a great bedside manor and takes the time to explain. Would highly recommend him and have to many of my friends who suffer from neck and back pain.

Abraham Rivera-A negative experience
Easy Appointment
Promptness
Friendly Staff
"The support staff was friendly and upbeat."
Spends Time with Patients
"It was a 5 minute lecture to "man up and deal with your pain.""
Appropriate Follow-up
"Of course I never returned"
Poor understanding of the fact that even younger patients can and do require treatment for chronic pain. Refused to look at MRI's that had been recently completed because he "knew from looking at me" (face to face, no physical exam at all) that I was too healthy to have suffered a disc lesion. The MRI and evidence he discounted was from another pain management specialist in the same company, and at the same location.

Negative Comments

Unfortunately Mr. Rivera seems to be one of the "God-complex" doctors we hear about, and seemed ageist against younger patients.

General Comments

Do not judge other physicians at FMC based on my review. I have worked with several who are all, aside from Mr. Rivera, outstanding and compassionate. Any of them will serve your needs better, especially if you are younger than fifty.
