Dr Alvarado helped me after a fall, 2 months after a hip replacement in Michigan. He revised the hip surgery and did femur reconstruction. I am very happy with his work, this was 2 1/2 years ago. I highly recommend him on his bedside manner , honesty and skill.

Two months ago to the day Dr. Alvarado did a left anterior hip replacement surgery on me. .I had f fractured my hip some time ago by taking a fall down some stairs.. I hadn't had any surgery since I was very young and I was quite apprehensive about having this surgery, until I met Dr. Alvarado. He explained the operation to me very thoroughly and made me feel very confident that he would change my life with this operation, and he did. I was walking the same day. He is a very skilled surgeon.

Dr Alvarado is a great doctor but more important he is a mensch. He took on my hip revision, corrected it, and gave me back my health. Throughout he made himself accessible and was totally honest with me good or bad. He is a throwback-a committed physician to his patient. I recommend him without reservation. Steven F. Sw Ranches

Dr. Alvarado is a very compassionate and thorough doctor. I had hip replacement surgery with him six weeks ago, and everything went smoothly. I feel great and I am getting my energy and strength back. I'm already driving and walking without any assistance and looking forward to dancing very soon. =) Both he and his staff, especially Lisa Segura, have been very caring and attentive to my needs. If I would ever need any other type of orthopedic surgery, I would definitely go back to Dr. Alvarado.

In one word: Amazing! Knowledge, care, human quality; I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Alvarado and his staff. I had hip and knee replacement done by Dr Alvarado within a six month period and last month I walked for 9 hours in Disney World without a problem. Thank you!

I am from Jamaica and was referred by my local Doctor to Baptist and visited with Dr Alvarado about three or four times, found him knowledgeable and attentive, patient and listen very carefully, thought he was going to schedule me for surgery but he was calm no rush, still receiving my injections and waiting, But very impressed.

Dr. Alvarado is a stellar example of a surgeon. He offers a brilliant level of insight and knowledge of the rarest of conditions and LISTENS to his patients...which is EVERYTHING! Not egotistical, judgmental, nor surgery hungry...just a GREAT DOCTOR!
