Dr. Midence really listens. Spends time with you, and usually has a solution to your problem. Maybe not a permanent fix - but a good substitute! H's very caring.

He is a very good doctor. And very thorough. The only complaint I would have is that I waited over an hour to be seen. It takes me 45 min to get there to begin with from Frostproof.

Comparing "notes" with others who have had knee surgery, I am so thankful for Dr Alverez! My recovery, post surgery medications, hospital care, etc. were so far above any one else's that I have spoken to. I am so fortunate to have had Dr. Alvarez as my surgeon.

Review for Dr. Juan Alvarez, MD

Horrible! Waste of time, energy and money. He was rude. Spend 3 minutes with me. And it was a useless visit! Didn't help with anything. Please don't go to him. Go to another clinic, to a better doctor who has manners and knows what he is doing.

Review for Dr. Robert Midence, MD

Can not recommend Dr. Patel. A joke of a gastrologist. Wasted my time with so many expensive test to tell me he did not know what I have. I then saw another local gastrologist who was able to treat my ibs. Dr. Patel does not know what he is doing and I wonder where he study.

Dr. Midence is a very thorough and caring doctor. What is particularly noteworthy to me is the time he takes to explain issues in understandable terms. My wife and I both trust our health to this doctor and recommend him highly to family and friends.
