Dr.Rivela had just left his partners and moved into a new practice on his own when he did my laser resurfacing. I am not really sure of the date so I put an approximate. He was on call at the hospital when I had my appointment. A family came in with a young son who had badly injured his hand. The parents were aweful people. They were fighting and making a big scene in the waiting room. The little boy was getting very upset. It was very uncomfortable for those of us waiting for our appointments. Dr.Rivela's staff tried to calm things down. Dr. Rivela came out form the patient exam area into the waiting room and set the parents straight and comforted the child who was injured. He got down on his knees to speak with the boy at eye level. I don't know what he said but the child smiled. You could tell that he really cared for the little guy and had no tolerence for the parents bad behavior. Totally professional! Wonderful caring manners. He was very detailed when explaining my procedure and was available for my questions. They rent their lasers so that they are always properly maintained and so he can choose the right laser for the individual patient. After the procedure he called to make sure I was doing well. He also spent time with me at the follow up appointment explaining what was happening with my skin and what to expect in the future. He under promised and over delievered. Of course this was my first procedure and I expected my skin to look like baby skin. It did not but, it was vastly improved.
