- 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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Diego N Rivera - Posted on March 11th, 2013
Dr. Rivera is a very good doctor. He truly cares about his patients and will work with them on getting them the medication that they need. Unlike most Lubbock doctors he will prescribe certain controlled substances when circumstances call for it. He does not have the friendliest bedside manner, he really just gets down to business. That is probably because he is always super busy but he does not make you feel rushed when he sees you. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a genuinley caring doctor in Lubbock. Oh and if you dont have health insurance a regular office visit only costs $70 (not bad when you compare that to most other clinics).
