Specialties

Dr. Ramon E Rivera has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Lousy follow through

Had high hopes after initial visit but following up has proved difficult. Office staff is extremely rude. I understand he's an expert in his field and has showed me things other drs either ignored to tell me or did not see. I'm glad I got to see him based on that but I just wish the relationship with his patients was better.

DR. RIVERA WAS RECOMMENDED TO ME BY MY DOCTOR. I WAS VERY SCEPTICAL ABOUT GOING OVER 100 MILES TO SEE A DOCTOR I WAS NOT FAMILIAR WITH. IT WAS WELL WORTH THE RIDE. DR. RIVERA WAS SO DETAILED IN EXPLAINING TO MY FAMILY MY PROBLEMS. I FEEL 100% MUCH BETTER. I HAVE A FOLLOW UP SOON AND I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT SEEING HIM AGAIN. I FEEL LIKE I AM IN EXCELLENT HANDS WITH THIS DR. RIVERA.

Dr. Rivera is a blessing for his expertise

Dr. Rivera was highly recommended for his expertise in dealing with the pancreas. I was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis in January. As Dr. Rivera was highly recommended I went for an office visit. My husband and I felt very confident in him as he took his time explaining different possibilities. He performed an ERCP and found a blockage in which he inserted a stent. He was very courteous and informative in explaining the procedure. Thank God I am feeling so much better and would highly recommend Dr. Rivera. He was a true blessing to me. His staff is very courteous as well. I can`t thank him enough for making me well.
