"Dr. Rivas was wonderful. She addressed all of my questions, concerns, and problems. Even though I had come in for a full body check she took the time to take care of a couple of minor problems that had been bothering me for quite some time. I was aware of everything going on as she explained everything to me as she was doing it. She also showed a great deal of concern for how I was by constantly asking how I was doing. I will be returning for my yearly body check or sooner if any problems occur before next year."
