Dr. Alvarado is a caring, compassionate internist, however she is very difficult to communicate with. Emails are either not answered or answered very late.
Appointments are more often available with a nurse practitioner not Dr. Alvarado.
Her "bedside manner" is excellent.
She is relatively inexperienced and on more than one occasion has prescribed drugs that were contraindicated but were caught by my pharmacist.
Cannot get an appointment to actually see the doctor. Only nurse practitioner. Ran a million tests and require a follow up to give me results (won't do it over phone). Yet cannot get an appointment with the actual doctor for 7 weeks. Something is wrong with that. Am ill with a high fever and called to see if anything in my test reports would indicate anything related but was unable to speak with even the nurse. Receptionist would not even take a message and have someone call me back.
