Professional Information

About the Practice
After graduating from the University of Missouri School of Medicine in Columbia, I completed Psychiatry Residency Training at the University of South Florida in Tampa, and for the last 18 years my practice has been dedicated to the care of patients with dementia, both living at home, or in facilities.

Working with the elderly is one of my passions, and every day I try to improve the quality of life of my patients, helping them remain as independent and functional as possible, for as long as possible.

I strongly believe in the influence of our lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise, meditation, and yoga in the prevention of chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, and different types of neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
Professional Biography
Dr. Miguel Rivera, an adult psychiatrist, will discuss how dementia affects capacity. Dr. Rivera will examine the most common types of dementia, features, symptoms, and diagnostics.  He will provide a discussion on how dementia affects our clients and their capacity, including their memory, executive function, and metacognition.  This section will provide you with clinical information to allow you to better understand your clients, and their needs, at a time when their capacity is diminished due to dementia.
