Always a good experience.

Dr. Rivera-Lebron is an excellent professional as well as a very caring person! Thank you Doctor for guiding me through this process and for saving my life!

The doctor did not know my name coming into the room and thought she was seeing a different patient. I don't feel like my concerns were taken seriously. I don't feel that the assessment was appropriate since I was suffering from shortness of breath from ingesting a peanut in my lung. Dr. Rivera called me the following day after consulting with her colleagues to say that we should do a bronchoscopy sooner than she told me which would have been a month out. Needless to say this was very confusing and I elected to change doctors at that time. Since then, I have been seen by another Pulmonary physician and have had a bronchoscopy to remove the peanut removed from my lung.

I have always been treated very well by the doctor and the support staff on each of my visits. They listen with genuine concern to any issues I'm having and explain things in a way that is easy to understand.

The doctor was very knowledgeable, very helpful and respectful. I had to wait more than 45 minutes to be seen though.
