Patient Comments (3)
Gus Alva is an excellent doctor. My mom has been treating my mom for over six years and I do not know what we would have done if we had not been lucky enough to be referred to him. He is caring and truly goes above and beyond. His office staff has changed and he now has a great team of people working the front office. They are kind, considerate and do whatever they can to make things as easy as possible.

My Brother passed away on 4.2.16 because his physician Dr Alva did not monitor the side effects of the medication that he was given. I really hope this physician loses his license to treat patients. This Horrible doctor does not care about his patients, all he cares about is being the drug companies henchman and pumping his patients full of meds. He constantly cancels on his patients.

Dr. Alva ordered a change in medication for my brother, who was his patient, without any testing, and failed to provide adequate follow up. Several weeks later he had a serious episode which became an emergency situation. We called his office numerous times, leaving desperate message for assistance, but he never responded. My brother disappeared, and once he was found he had to be hospitalized.
