Thank you for visiting my home page. Being a new member of the Department of Medicine at Kaiser Richmond I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself.
My name is Nilo Isidro Rivera. I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines and obtained my medical degree from the University of the Philippines College of Medicine. Immediately after medical school I served as medical officer for the Manila Health Department for two years providing charity medical service to the marginalized population of the city of Manila. I then underwent residency training at the SUNY-Health Sciences Center in Brooklyn, NY and became board certified in Internal Medicine in 2000. Thereafter, I did a fellowship in Palliative Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic performing both clinical and research work and co-writing published articles in the process. For the past seven years I practiced in Clayton, NM, a federally designated health provider shortage area located at the northeast corner of the state. My experience in a small community showed me the value of partnership between physician and patient and the mutual benefits that result from it – greater knowledge and fulfillment for the doctor and trust, compliance and subsequently better health for the patient.
I moved to the Bay area to be near family and friends. I chose to work for Kaiser Permanente because of its reputation for quality medical care, genuine service, and tradition of excellence. Besides, most of my family and friends are members and only have praises for the care they receive.
Outside of work I enjoy watching movies, playing basketball and chess, trying different cuisines, and traveling. I speak Tagalog (Filipino) fluently. I hope to take up cooking and learning to speak Spanish in the future. I would have liked wine drinking but, unfortunately, I have low tolerance to alcohol.
I am looking forward to being a partner who could provide answers to your questions and assist in your health needs. Please feel free to get in touch by phone or by secure messaging.
