He is absolutely the rudest dr we have ever seen and he recommended somebody that retired a couple years ago . I wouldn’t recommend anybody going to him he is one horrible man and I hope when he looks in the mirror he see something different than I saw it today the most uncompassionate doctor ever. A total waste of time for someone that is in excruciating pain he could’ve cared less

My husband had surgery 2 weeks ago. He had a cyst that was compressing some nerves and he could barely walk. Dr. Alvarez explained his condition and problems to us and let us know what choices my husband had. He answered all our questions before and after the procedure. He never rushed us. He and his staff are very professional and friendly.

Dr. Alvarez did a great job from the first office visit, through the diagnosis, until the successful surgery. Herniated disk, and spinal stenosis caused pain shooting down my leg all the way to my foot. Dr. Alvarez repaired the damage and immediately after surgery all the pain was gone. Soon I was walking 3 to 4 miles a day. And now I am back to playing golf and tennis. Thanks Dr. Alvarez!

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident and have had numerous tests, procedures as well as three surgeries in less than six months. As such, it was essential for me to choose the best surgeon available (he’s over an hour from my home but well worth the drive). As part of my due diligence I have seen three Neurosurgeons and am thankful I was referred to Dr. Alvarez; he is clearly the surgeon for me! Thank you again Doctor for taking the time to explain everything in such detail and for your genuine compassion.

Wish I could give a 0 rating. PLEASE do not waste time or money on this ‘person’... spent less than 2 minutes with me back in November. Found I have c spine stenosis and a frontal lobe brain tumor. I wanted his to realize how serious this is esp with the blacking our and trouble I have with balance and finding words. He ABSOLUTELY did not SIMPLY bc the one MRI needed a request from him and he made CLEAR he doesn’t do requests nor medication. Please if you’re in a desperate situation DO NOT EXPECT HELP FROM THE ONE... he will make you feel WORSE then after the anxiety and fear this diagnosis brings. I am also in the process of recovering the $602.00 from his first appt. now I’m filing a complaint with the medical board and BBB

I am very pleased with the professional treatment by Dr. Alvarez and the complete attending staff. Dr. Alvarez saved my life I was almost paralyzed and he did two implants C5-6 and C6-7, my surgery was successful. The doctor diagnosed my symptoms and explained every detail to me so I understood what to expect before and after my surgery. They answered all of my questions. I put my full faith and trust in Dr. Alvarez and highly recommend him and his staff.

When you are having someone operate on your spine you want someone like Dr. Alvarez to do the operation as he answers all the questions with common sense answers. During the office visits and the visits in the hospital he was very professional and I'm completely satisfied with the results as the pain I had for several months has completely gone away.

Dr. Alvarez and his staff are very professional and kind. He performed my lower back surgery in April 2018, implanting a rod and screws, and I started back to work mid September 2018 after not working for 2 yrs.; I am forever grateful.
