    This was my worst experience with a Doctor ever. He is arrogant and rude. Also his medical knowledge is questionable. I searched a second opinion and am feeling much better now. This ?MD?is does not know how to treat patients. Never heard Good Morning, Thank You, Good Bye or merry Christmas from him. His receptionist at the Weston Practice, is exactly the same. I will change doctor immediately. All patients scheduled for exactly the same time.

    My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Hernando Alvarez for nine years. Consistently he has kept a remarkably high level of medical service. He is very knowledgeable and COMPASIONATE; unfortunately, the latter not very common these days.
