What our patients have to say…

  • Mr ***** saw Dr Rivière this morning. He has since called to say that he was very impressed with his visit. He said the whole experience was great and that Dr Rivière was extremely helpful, couldn’t have been better!

  • Bonjour Dr Rivière. À presque 8 semaines après votre intervention je marche normalement, mon genou est à 0° en extension et 130° en flexion, plus de douleur dû à la polyarthrite, je continue à faire des progrès de jour en jour, cette intervention me change la vie. Encore merci.

  • Mr Riviere was excellent, and explained everything thoroughly, ensuring I understood everything throughout the consultation. He is extremely approachable and professional. Would highly recommend him.

  • What can I say but a massive Thank YOU! You’ve turned my life completely around. Dr Rivière has changed my life. I needed a double simultaneous AMIS hip replacement, he was committed to finding the best solution for me...I’m now 4 months post op, and I’m dashing around after the kids, going to the park, going for walks, doing the shopping, the housework without even thinking about it! My scars healed with no bother at all. I would recommend Dr Rivière to my nearest and dearest without a second thought. He’s a true Gem.
