Nothing in the medical profession, or any other for that matter, can be a substitute for experience. Dr. Rivera has the understanding and insight that we all require in the healthcare profession. I have years of experience as the non medical director in a chain of back rehabilitation clinics titled Back in Action (Nike was our joint venture partner). I also launched FreeFlexRx, the first of its kind injury prevention program in the workplace (mid 80's).
