Ordered test on me. Had receptionist try to explain results and SCHEDULE A PROCEDURE. This "doctor" refused to call me back and explain why he said to do xyz, when I was in his office and then, had receptionist tell me to do abc and that I needed to go into the hospital, in 2 weeks, to have a procedure done! Took my results & myself to another urology GROUP.
I lost my father last year as a direct result of this man's negligence. His lack of knowledge as to what he is doing is matched only by his totally incompetent office staff. I totally believe my beloved father would still be alive if it were not for this doctor and his moron of an office assistant (Jennifer)!
Dr Rivera performed an operation on me to remove a bladder stone.The operation was NOT a success.The stone was the size of a robins egg.It did not fit thru the urethra.Really? Why did he even try? The size was clearly shown in the scans.He suggested some Urosit k to dissolve the stone. Did not work. He doesn't follow up. I still have the stone in my bladder. I will find another doctor to remove it.
