Patient Comments (3)
He's a talented surgeon, no doubt, but the follow-up care is not good. He's never examined me physically or gone over an MRI with me in the room, or anything. He just comes in, asks me how I feel, then I leave with a handful of scripts. The worst part are the inept office staff, who take weeks to return a call, even after calling several times. Alvis will do a good job on your surgery, but don't expect that to end your pain,, and don't expect anyone in his office to care when it doesn't.
