Dr Rivkees is an extremely talented medical professionl. We were blessed to have him in CT as our son's endocrinologist. We were very sad when he moved to FLA. He listens intently to his patients concerns, offers suggestions and is always at the top of his game. Excellent clinician by far!!

Outstanding-kind, compassionate & extremely capable

Dr Rivkees is an outstanding doctor. He is highly knowledgeable, very thorough and extremely accurate. His bedside manner is excellent and he is both insightful and experienced. We could not have wished for more when selecting a thyroid specialist to care for our son. We found the Children's Hospital and the staff to also be very capable and compassionate.

One Star

As a specific patient to Dr. Rivkees I would not recommend him to any family member or friend. His unprofessionalism and lack of caring towards my health state was unbelievable and left me hospitalized for much longer than was originally necessary. I was told several times that my symptoms were illegitimate and that I was not as sick as I was saying I was, when in reality I was admitted to the ICU within 24 hours because I was severely declining. He rarely answered my phone calls and typically forwarded me to his secretary to speak about my current medical state, which his secretary had NO knowledge of. He was frequently out of the country and when he would return called and tried to cancel my appointments claiming I was fine and didn't need to be seen. However while he was gone, I had only gotten severely worse, but he never seemed to ask. Being his patient was terrifying and left me doubtful of the care of any doctor during my illness. He often made my family members and I uncomfortable with his inappropriate stories during our visits that did not pertain at all to my care. He was extremely awkward and after a while I began to feel uncomfortable even asking him a question about my health.
