Dr. Alvarez is excellent! He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Rheumatology and most professional. I have been ill a long time and Dr. Alvarez has helped me enormously. He has a calming disposition, listens, never rushes you and welcomes questions. A good doctor is like a Superhero and Dr. Alvarez is absolutely a Superhero.

My mother has been waiting for a shot since April - it is now August. She keeps getting the runaround. She cannot get anyone to answer why she isn't getting this calcium shot .
