My husband have been in every rehabilitation center in Miami and not one have provided the excellent service as Riviera Health Resort. When he was admitted December 2015 I thought he was never ever be able to speak or eat solid foods, today he is completely recovered. I must say nurse Suzie and aid Alishua have been the answer to all my prayers. I thank you all for a great job. Laly Benitez

My father has been living in Riviera for one year and I have no words to express the gratitude that I have towards the nurses that take care of my dad At riviera. This situation is a tough one for everyone involved but at Riviera I feel my dad is well cared for and makes everything a bit more comfortable. I want to thank The Riviera team for everything you do for my father.

At the request of Estela J., a patient at this great facility, I am posting her comments (to which I agree): “Thanks, Riviera Health and its wonderful staff for the care I am receiving at your facility. Everyone has been pleasant, understanding, cooperative and professional in their handling of my rehab needs. With their help, I continue to see a notable improvement in my mobility. God bless you all.” As a visitor, I enjoy the ambiance, pleasant attendants and efficiency in dealing with the patients.
