About Dr. Rivas
Agustin Rivas, MD, Medical Director
"I have always loved children and felt an affinity for them. I became a pediatrician because I wanted to treat sick
babies and children and make a difference in their lives. I have great empathy for babies and children, and nothing
makes me happier than helping them feel better.
"I treat my patients as if they are my own family. So I always want them to receive the very best possible care based
on the most up-to-date medical knowledge. I want them to always feel safe and comfortable when they visit my
practice. I'm a big believer in educating children and parents about preventive health, because I want to spare them
from the expense and suffering that often come with serious medical conditions and disease. I want them to enjoy
long, healthy, happy lives." In his free time, Dr. Rivas enjoys spending time with family, cooking, running, fly-fishing,
traveling, and scuba diving.
