Doctor was anxious to set up biopsy even before the examination. Was sent to scheduling to get dates. They said I need to pick a date, then change/cancel if needed. That was IMPOSSIBLE. I asked for other dates - the scheduler said: no. I tried to call and cancel, I continuously was sent to voice mail - twice to the wrong office telling me that I (not them) made a mistake. Call center that handles 14 offices they told me- not my problem. 2nd opinion said biopsy not required yet.

Office staff is beyond rude and are too busy talking to each other to properly handle their patients. I was told I would receive a call back to setup a procedure to check for cancer and never got that call. I finally called and the representative said Why didn't you schedule it when you were here, you should have done that yourself. Well I was told someone would call me. Then they schedule it 3 months out when I have a high cancer risk. VERY unprofessional.
Dr. Alvarez took his time to talk to me and explain my problem in detail so I could better understand the issue.
