He moved to the United States and received his Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) from Arizona State University in Tempe. One year after graduating, he realized that medicine, rather than administration, was his true passion. In Miami, Dr. Rivera went on to earn his medical degree from the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine and completed his residency at South Miami Hospital.

Before moving to Houston, Dr. Rivera worked as an attending physician (and previously as a resident) with the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine’s Yucatan Crippled Children's Project (YCCP) in Merida, Mexico. In addition, he practiced as a podiatric surgeon and worked to further enhance his podiatric skills in the Greater Seattle area.
