    Patient Reviews (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.

    D. ALuis is an amazing surgeon. He doesn't waste your time and listens to all your concerns. He's very knowledgeable and knew exactly what course of treatment to use in my case which resulted in a great outcome.
