Dr. Lorena Riveros, Hyattsville, Maryland

I stole Dr. Riveros from the TLC Rockville Center ... by accident.  Her schedule is super busy, and the only time she could get time off corresponded with our Tysons Corner schedule.  I took advantage of my chance to meet her knowing that I probably would not get to see her often!

But, then, it turns out that Dr. Holzman tried to steal her from me when she came to visit the Center.  Usually, visiting doctors spend time with BOTH of us so that they can see the surgical and clinical sides of the Center.  However, once Dr. Holzman found out that Dr. Riveros is originally from Miami ... well ... it took a long time before I got to even say hi to her!

We saw a couple of pre-op evaluations together.  One patient has written out a list of questions that she wanted to review.  You can really tell who does their research and who does not.  It took us a while to get through everything, but I think that it is crucial to answer each and every single question that patients have before their procedure.  As clinicians, we've been through this many times over.  However, this is the patient's first time to ever have LVC.  I always try to keep that in mind when working with patients.  - jw
