Very professional and spent a lot of time with me and explained details to my understanding. Staff was polite and courteous and his nurse is knowledgeable and confident when I asked questions which impressed me. I highly recommend Dr Alvarez and suggested his name to some people I know that need to see a rheumatologist

Terminated my care and referred me to hospital 300(!) miles away. Did not even have the professional courtesy to tell me in person and explain rationale. Staff left a phone message day before scheduled appointment! This doctor had been prescribing me a critical maintenance drug which I am running low on.

I was undiagnosed with autoimmune symptoms that were steadily getting worse. I saw two docs in my hometown that had me thinking that my symptoms weren’t significant. I was lucky enough to get an appointment with Dr. Alvarez. He reviewed my records and did a complete exam, and then proceeded to tell me my diagnosis. He wrote it down and discussed next steps. He tied it all together in a kind and professional manner. I am lucky and grateful to have his help.

If you need to see a Rheumatologist, I would not see Dr.Alverez.Not only is his office chaotic and poorly run but he was not at all equipped to help me with my problem. I ended up going for a second opinion and that Dr solved the problem.If you need a Rheumatologist,you should go to Miami or Tampa.Dont waste your time with this amateur.

Finally............ A specialist in Naples who knows his stuff, takes the time to explain it to me, and makes me feel that I am a human person and not just a set of symptoms. I highly recommend this doctor!

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 .
