Dr Ribera is the finest doctor l have ever been treated by. His care and competence are unmatched and you could never do better than have him as your gastroenterologist.
Phil C.
Dr. Ribera and his staff did a great job educating me on the colonoscopy procedure and made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. I highly recommend him and his team!
Barry S.
I've seen Dr. Ribera and his team since my first routine screening colonoscopy, at age50. (Have since had a second
10-year screening and will have a one-year follow up to that in a couple of days.) I am writing this review for two reasons: 1.To endorse Dr. Ribera and his team in the strongest possible terms, and 2. To tell anyone poking around Yelp for advice on this ... uncomfortable ... topic to TAKE IT SERIOUSLY AND NOT DEFER YOUR SCREENING.
Dr. Ribera is a good guy. Can't say it any more plainly. He is smart, experienced, good-natured, and honest. My last screening turned up some worrisome precancerous stuff.He explained it to me in simple terms, had a game plan in mind, and combined reassurance with directness--just what you need and want.
His Physician Assistant, Sara, is great. (She sees most patients for pre-procedure evaluation.)His front office team is solid.
My procedure was postponed due to pandemic issues, and they communicated with me regularly. Finally: acolonoscopy is not the most enjoyable way to spend 24 hours (from prep through procedure) but it saves lives. It can save yours. It has saved family and friends of mine. So don't listen to whatever conspiracy stuff you might find online. Take the prep, deal with the short term consequences and have the
damned test. It's worth it. And try to have Dr. Ribera perform it.
I love the man.
Frank H.
