Sports Medicine Fellows

Justin Raper, MD

Dr. Raper attended medical school at the AUC School of Medicine. He completed his internship in internal medicine at Nassau University Medical Center, his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Montefiore Medical Center and a fellowship in Cardiac Rehabilitation at Montefiore Medical Center. He chose sports medicine to prevent and treat activity-related injuries, so that patients may return to exercise or sport and achieve their optimal performance. As you may be able to tell by his favorite tie, he is a New Orleans Saints superfan.

Ruben Rivera, MD

Dr. Rivera received his undergraduate degree from University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus and completed medical school at Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara School of Medicine. He completed his residency program at VA Caribbean Healthcare System, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Dr. Rivera's professional interests include sports medicine, diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound and ultrasound guided procedures, and regenerative medicine. His favorite sport is basketball, and he enjoys physical activities and exercising (he does have to practice what he preaches). During his down time, Dr. Rivera likes to read DC comics (Batman is his favorite) and playing video games. He is also a dog lover and adopted a Gerberian Shepsky named Athena last year.
