Dr. Nelki Rivera Acosta fell in love with human anatomy at a young age and loves using her knowledge to help others today. “I chose to work with seniors to honor my grandmother, who I loved dearly,” she says. “Being a doctor is a blessing—and seeing patients feel well and be as healthy as they can is what I strive for.” To accomplish this, Dr. Rivera Acosta treats patients like family. She listens closely to their concerns, puts herself in their shoes, and gets actively involved in improving their whole well-being.
In her down time, Dr. Rivera Acosta keeps up with the latest medical research. She also enjoys spending time with family, caring for pets that she has rescued, reading a good book, and watching movies.
