Dr Alvi is not a caring doctor and does not make you feel welcome. She is very aggressive with the way she talks to her patients and come off as being rude. I switch my providers because I've became so uncomfortable with seeing her and for me to keep my sanity it's best for me to leave. She rush to get you out the office and is not considerate of her comments to her patients and how her words make people feel. I would not recommend her to no one...

Dr. Alvi doesn't care about her patients. She treats people horribly and is incredibly rude. she told me my mom has several problems and hopes she doesn't get her as a patient next time. Don't waste your money or time here. She's not the kind of dr that should be taking care of you or your loved ones.

First time visitor to Dr Alvi today She was kind, caring and very smart. The staff was equally as kind, caring and smart. I was very impressed with my first visit to Dr. Alvi and her staff

This doctor is literally crazy went for my second appointment and had to wait over two hours. So when I finally saw the doctor I said to her over two hours hours is a long time to make a patient waiting. She went ballistic started yelling at me telling me I could reschedule, I told her I am already here why would I reschedule? Then she said you reschedule I said no I am here right now I will not reschedule then she started raising her hands in the air telling me to leave her office crazy.

Dr. Alvi is a good practitioner but her staff is awful! I tried to schedule an appointment two days in a row and was told that someone would get back to me but they never called.. finally I gave up.
