I agree with John on all counts...she misdiagnosed many times both myself and my daughter. I used to see Dr Martinez exclusively until he walked out - unable to work with her another minute. Not only does she commit insurance fraud - insisting I come in every 2 weeks for an *exam*...but she's also removed records, and now 18 months later has still not forwarded them to any of my new doctors. Stay away!

Dr. Rivera treated me terribly. She told me that all of my issues were because I was fat and she told me to think about how I was affecting my children. She could have explained things to me in a polite manor but she went on and on. The nurse apologized to me and told me that many people complained about her. My wife went to her before as well and she diagnosed our two children incorrectly. She said they had the flu when they clearly did not. My wife is a pharmacist and knew that this Doctor was incorrect with her diagnosis. We believe that she stays in practice because she commits insurance fraud by taking advantage of patients' medicaid and other insurances. I will never go to her again.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
