Accepting New Patients?


​​​Professional Background

After earning his medical degree from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 2001, Carlos Rivera, M.D. completed his Internal Medicine internship and residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. ​​

​My philosophy on patient care is to treat the patient with respect, to make the patient feel as if they are being listened to – that’s very important. The patient, you known, has the vulnerability when they come in and their relying on us to help guide them. The patient is first and we do what we can to help them out.
