Dr. Jorge Alvarez and his support team (Denise Vega MSN ACNP, Mallory RN) and support staff (Valerie, Elisa, and Paula M.O.S.) are very professional. Dr. Alvarez immediately puts you at ease and asks the appropriate probing questions to determine your state of health. He ensures that I'm taking the correct meds. The Patient Portal is a fantastic link to this amazing team. I have used it many times and always with a quick reply via the portal or a phone call. This is my Cardiology home.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. Our staff will pass along the kind words!

Dr. Alvarez is in my opinion an accomplished cardiologist. I have known about him since he literally saved my wife's life a few years ago. It happened when she went in for a DNC, a fairly simple procedure, she stopped breathing when she was brought out to the recovery room. Her gynecologist rushed up to get Dr. Alvarez to quickly come down to help with her. He figured out quickly what wad wrong and fixed it the next day. She has been her cardiologist since. Not enough space to say more.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

Dr Alvarez is an excellent doctor. He helped me immediatly upon my arrival placing 3 stints in my chest in spring of 2015. I’m doing well and he and his associate Denise have watched over me carefully. I consider them both as blessings.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez for almost two years and could not be more pleased with the care I have received not only from Dr. Alvarez, but his PA, his nurse, and the entire staff. I have 100% trust in their ability to help me maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have already recommended him to family and friends because I know they will receive excellent care and be as impressed as I am with the professionalism and friendliness of everyone they encounter during their visits.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. Our staff will pass along the kind words!

Was my first experience going to a cardiologist, and needless to say I was very nervous not knowing what to expect. But Dr. Alvarez and his staff were so friendly, explaining each step, that I was immediately put at ease. Actually enjoyed the visit and conversation. Although I have a return visit, am kinda looking forward to seeing them again!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

I have been to many GP offices and to numerous medical specialists' groups. From the front desk, billing, to diagnosis testing, to nurses, to the PA, to Dr. Alvarez...this is an exceptionally well-oiled machine. Every person listens, is courteous, timely in actions, is knowledgeable, is efficient, is responsive, and most of all caring. An extraordinary practice with intelligent, well-trained, and beyond helpful and pleasant individuals. A+++++++++++++

I really like Dr. Alvarez, and I feel confident with his knowledge, care, and concern. I have an uncommon tumor, and he was aware of the effects it can have on the heart.

Have been a patient for five years, along with my orthopedic surgeon, these two gentlemen changed my life. Not an exaggeration, just pure fact. Give thanks every day that pain led me to them. Dr. Alvarez' nurse is very professional.
in Kerrville, TX |
Dr Alvarez saved my life in 2010. I had a heart attack and he placed a stent. I have been a patient of his since 8/11/2110. Dr. Alvarez always talks to me and addresses my concerns in language I can understand. His RN is very helpful in all situations. His staff are friendly and very helpful in explaining all procedures. His PA is wonderful and very well in tune with Dr. Alvarez. I feel very fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Alvarez.
