Specialties

Dr. Joffre R Rivera has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Wam Bam thank you ma'am and I loved it!!

I don't need to be pampered no matter what the situation. My procedure at Lakeland Surgical and Diagnostic was streamlined and professional. No complaints from this old gal. I went to sleep with a good lookin' doc at my side, why would I complain?

I rate low on listening and explaining.

Dr. Rivera was not especially good at listening and explaining things--at least that was the case during my visit to the Lakeland Surgical Center. There are times when you feel doctors are pretty much in it for the money. This was one of those for me.

I felt rushed and I felt like he wasn't listening to my concerns. His nurses are very unhelpful and unfriendly.
