Dr. Alcocer is great. He and his PA are very professional, make you feel comfortable and are always willing to answer any question. I’ve had 3 occasions to have Dr. Alcocer provide a colonoscopy and endoscopy. They went well, piece of cake.

Dr. Alcocer has been my Gastroenterologist since 2006 and all through this time he has remained very attentive, caring, a very keen listener as well as good at explanations of what’s going on. He is extremely thorough as well and I’m quite thankful to have him as my Gastroenterologist.
