    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.

Easy to make appointments. Easy to access Dr. Rivas personally. If you follow the guidance carefully you will continue to lose the excess pounds with the understanding weight loss is faster in the beginning of the program and tends to taper after a few weeks. I also believe Dr. Rivas' position is correct with regard to weight loss - it's not much different than having a condition such as high blood pressure. You must take a supplement of some kind to control it and this may be for a lifetime.

Definitely worth it

In 3 1/2 months I have lost 32 pounds since visiting Rivas weight loss. The office wait time is minimal and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. For me, the medication has zero side effects other than suppressing appetite. And while you're on the program you are focused enough to permanently change patterns in your diet and exercise. I am confident that the healthy lifestyle practices I've implemented will be long-term and that the weight will stay off.

Nothing but the best!!!!

Dr. Rivas is the best!!! His staff is amazing. I've lost over 100lbs and it has not been a struggle. I never wanted to do this more. Dr, Rivas has given me the strength and willpower , he has a caring staff and he himself is one of the kindest caring people I know. I've been a patient for many years and have recommended his program to many friends who have also found success with Dr. Rivas's way what a wonderful service!!! Have wanted to move from this area but have decided to stay here so I could continue to be a patient of Dr. Rivas's practice. He is the best thing that has happened to me. I look forward to every visit. What a life saver, thank you!

Full Review Rating Breakdown

I have been a patient of Dr. Rivas for a few years now and I have lost 80lbs and have reached my goal weight for the first time in my life! Dr. Rivas gave me a whole new reason to live, and it's so easy to lose weight, I thought I was destined to struggle my entire life. His staff is knowledgeable and thorough, tracking my progress carefully along the way. He is by far the most intelligent doctor I have ever known, and I only wish my PCP had half his sense.

Amazing Doctor

I just wish I hadn't hesitated to try this program before now, Dr. Rivas helped me get my life back on track. I felt really bad about myself before, I hated looking in the mirror. Now I feel like I have another chance. It's taken some work but it is so worth it and I am so proud of myself
