Miss. Lourdes Rivera is an extremely capable nurse who proves time and time again that she is a great asset to any medical office. She is able to leave her personal life at the door and concentrate on her patients, providing superlative care with a smile on her face. Miss Rivera is upbeat, charismatic, and charming, and her patients have nothing but good things to say about her. Medical Offices are usually associated with gloom and grief, yet Miss Rivera manages to make our’s a pleasant, almost cheerful environment. There are so many responsibilities entrusted on nurses, still, she is able to function at a high level under immense pressure and stress. In emergencies, she remains levelheaded and in control of the situation. Signed - Dr. Emily Vives
