I was referred to Dr. Alvear by a neurosurgeon for my back and neck pain. On my first office visit, he'd already reviewed my MRI results and was aware of my problems. I never felt rushed and he took the time to explain my conditions. He answered all my questions and a plan was made to help me alleviate the pain. I highly recommend Dr. Alvear for my friends and family.

Dr Alvear has probably one of the best bedside manners that I have ever encountered in any physician. I felt like he really listed to me, empathized with my situation and offered a very positive attitude toward alleviating my pain which he has greatly followed through on.

I have had 3 spinal fusions, which were successful, but left with degenerative changes. Have tried to push through the pain but even after walking, core strengthening, etc., unfortunately pain most days. Saw Dr. Alvear today at Physicians Spine & Rehab Specialists. Highly recommend. Great listener, created plan for me and highly professional. This industry needs more like him!

Dr. Alvear, Chris and I were very saddened to hear that you left the pain clinic.The last time I saw you I got a weird vibe and now I know why. Chris would love to talk football sometime or books now that I am not a patient. Brady is not done by the way. Our home number is available from information. We live in Augusta. Can’t tell you how much I miss you and wish I was going thru the “ draw down “ with you. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us and we wish you the very best. Chris & Dawn P

Dr Alvear has been my pain relief provider for about 18 years. He was the kindest, caring, and extremely knowledgeable physician. I am so very saddened that he is no long working at The Gwinnett Medical Pain Center. I will miss him very much. He has been like a life line for me. I hope I will see him again somewhere. Dr Alvear, if you read this please know that Roland and Icare about you very much. We wish you the best always. Since you are no longer treating us, how about lunch? Please call us.
