About Dr. Alexander Z Rivkin MD
Dr. Alexander Z Rivkin has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Alexander Z Rivkin - Posted on June 10th, 2016
Years ago I came in for an "artificial nose job" consultation to cover a dent scar on my nose. When I expressed doubt about going through with the procedure, Rivkin was quick to find my insecurity and convinced me something to the effect that if I don't do this, I will always be thinking about the scar on my face. Truth is, ever since the procedure, I am ACTUALLY am thinking about my disfigured nose everyday. My main concern when I doubted the procedure was the thought that it might migrate and he keep assuring me it would not (it is even marketed this way). Result, ARTEFILL DOES MIGRATE and it is PERMANENT and I still have my dent scar along with a pattern of lumps surrounding it. To add to the experience, Rivkin did not admit any fault. He said my face looked like nothing had changed. Did I pay 2,000+ dollars for nothing to change? He even refused to refer me to a specialist so that I may remove the product and correct the disfigurement. I was unable to pursue damages because of the standard arbitration contracts most medical patients sign which is such a shame in cases with con artist type physicians. PLEASE if you are considering working with him, TRUST YOUR INTUITION (I ignored mine). This doctor is fake, sincerely insincere and will drive you insane with his denial of any problem, lack of empathy, and textbook narcissism. The result of being permanently disfigured has left me defeated and I am yet to find a solution.
