This doctor is a joke the billing department all screwed up and when you go there only wants to talk about is everything in his life then one minute he'll ask you how you are doing like this is this is play time

Dr. Alvarado is the most unprofessional, rude doctor I have ever met. He does not care you're in pain or what's wrong. My wife hates him too! He could care less. he is very condescending, your opinion or medical knowledge means nothing to him, he curses, he tells you all about his horrible wife, bikers he knows, doesn't ask how I am doing or if the medication is working. Now he's dropping the patients meds down b/c he's worried he'll get into trouble & the gov. is making him do it. Horrible!

This man doesn't care for my well being nor does he have any interest in me getting better. He simply fills my scripts and leaves the room. Never before have I had a doctor as rude as he. One appt he will be happy and very talkative (of himself) next appt he is going off on me for no reason and threatening to take my meds away. Being such a small town I have to deal with him. I have no other choice. It's really sad, I have so much going on pain wise and with him and my pain doc I'm getting worse

Great doctor with refreshing personality, nice office, was not packed with people waiting to be seen. Spent time with me discussing my pain and offered injections instead of just pushing pills. He was down to earth. My referral for MRI and physical therapy were faxed the next week and I was able to schedule without problems.

This doctor puts you in a position that if you refuse to take his advice or refuse his implants he will not give you medications you desperately need. Acts as if he is the ultimate judge in all medical knowledge even when you provide proof to the contrary. When asking for meds or increase in dosage he gives lame excuses such as weight gain to prevent you from attaining a semblance of quality of life you need to work & just survive.Gossips for all to hear, swears, then makes jokes at your expense
