Dr. Alves implanted a reveal link after I kept passing out. This Physician knows what he is doing. He is very intelligent and a great physician when it comes to the heart. His staff is very caring and personable. Dr. Alves understands and listens to his patients when it comes to the concerns for health. I was trying to find out why I kept passing out and he suggested a link to capture any arrhythmia's I may have been having. He is very professional and very caring. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Alves and his staff make me feel like I'm a family member. He's very patient, explains things well and always takes his time which makes me feel like I'm not being rushed out. He comes across as knowledgeable and confident. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alves!

I had severe AFIB and Dr. Alves performed ablation surgery on me in August 2015. He is an excellent, caring and professional Dr. who listens to his patients, discusses all options and did not "push" me into having surgery right away. I would (and have) recommended Dr. Alves to family members and friends. My AFIB is 100% gone and I was able to go back to my cross training and cycling workouts shortly after surgery. His office staff are very courteous, knowledgeable. 5 Stars in my book!

Dr. Alves was good and we had no problems medically. However, in about a month we started getting bills from the office. Given that we have dual coverage and have received extensive services from variety of specialists including cardio and services at USC and UCLA and this covered services, I was surprised to get bills. I spoke with office staff to clarify. they said it was no mistake. so if u want to pay out of your teeth , be sent to collections, and get refused services otherwise, come here.
