in Palm Bay, FL |
i visited Dr. Alvarez for spinal stenosis. i have several nerve blocks which lasted a few months on both legs. After this Dr. Alvarez did RFA on both legs. i feel as if I have my life back with very limited pain. I have never taken pain drugs and related this to the doctor. He tries very hard to get you to a place in your life that is manageable. I have been highly satisified, not a doctor to just hand you pain medicine.

His staff is very efficient and the wait times were less than 5 minutes as compared to the other back doctor I went to see who made me wait over an hour in the waiting room and 30 minutes in the exam room. Dr. Alvarez was very patient and asked plenty of questions.

His bedside manner is horrible. I've rarely seen a lack of compassion like his. I can not for the life of me understand why he chose his profession.
