Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I recently started having chest pain that was worsening. I discussed treatment/testing options with Dr. Alvarez and we decided to do a catheterization. Unfortunately, I tested Covid positive and was going to be rescheduled. Dr. Alvarez was concerned enough about my story that he worked with Methodist Hosp Cath lab to ensure I got treated. Good thing. If not for his diligence I most likely would have had a heart attack during quarantine. Quick overnight stay and I feel great. He has a great bedside manner and is very empathetic with his patients and the staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez for about 18 months. I can say he is a wonderful physician, knowledgeable, informative and attentive to my concerns. At our first appointment he said, don’t worry we will find out what is going on and make you better. The entire staff is competent and friendly. I fell lucky to have him as my cardiologist.
