5 Star Doctor Plus. He is like an old time doctor who has real concern and passion for his patients. He makes sure you understand everything that will happen before and after surgery. Just love his GetWell Loop web site. He checks in every day and you have the opportunity to ask questions. So compassionate. If you need a joint replacement he is your Doctor. I had surgery in early Feb. and have to say I had little or no pain afterward.

Had a full right knee replacement. On day 1 of the surgery I was up and walking. Same thing on day 2,3,4. On day 5 well enough to drive. Everyone is different but Dr. Alvarez's pain therapy was amazing. Never took the Oxycodone prescribed.

To this point I cannot be happier or more satisfied with how my surgery and recovery has gone. If I could give any one or everyone who has been involved with this procedure more than 5 stars, I would. No more consideration or additional thought would be necessary.

From the first time I met Dr. Alverez I felt very at ease. He explained all about the procedure and kept me abreast of all that was going on, 8 days before the operation to after. Any questions with the loop, a great tool, got answered in a fast manner. It makes you feel at ease. The hospital was a great place also, all personnel were friendly and informative. If I ever need any more procedures done Dr. Alverez is the way to go.
