Very thorough.
Palm Springs, CA |
I could not be happier with the services rendered by Dr Alvarado and his staff. His manner is always positive and supportive. He is thorough in his explanations and speaks in lay nomenclature. He is obviously quite knowledgeable and evidences genuine caring. Follow up and follow through are consistent without reminders. I think he should conduct in-service training with other doctors who could benefit from his manner and approaches. Kudos to Dr. Alvarado! Linda Patton
