I saw Dr. Alvarez in 2019. He seemed very nice and spent a lot of time with me to explain everything. He asked me to take a number of tests and afterward he explained them and walked me thru his recommendation. I would recommend him.

Review for Dr. Alvarez

I have no issues with Dr. Samji's competence or bedside manner. What I don't appreciate is having to wait 1 month after getting a CT scan to learn the results. Charging $250 for a 2 minute visit to tell me there's nothing wrong is ridiculous. That could have easily been done over the phone.
