I am very disappointed with this doctor. 1, gave a lame excuse to my primary on giving results to my primary doctor. 2, would not give me results until I paid my copay first. Not even bill me later. 3, Never mentioned my husband was allowed to be in the exam room with me.

Put simply, without Dr. Alvarez I would be dead. I went to him 11 years ago with a cane, liver failure and instructions form other doctors to make sure my affairs were in order. Especially the insurance and beneficiary. He sent me for a sleep study and I had sleep apnea so bad the technician thought I was going to die in front of him. Within three days, I had a CPAP in my house. It not only saved my life but changed my life. Never used a cane again and my liver enzymes are much better.
