You must have Patience to be her patient

Dr. Riva is a good Dr. but, her staff is VERY unprofessional. You could be in the next room and hear them talking about the patient on the other room. Everybody will know your business once you walk out of there. Dr. Riva herself is a great doctor, and very funny and incouraging. But on a serious note Dr. Riva, beside your Nurse, you need new staff. I mean from the front desk to the financial person. everyone need changing. Her nurse is very professional and nice.
