Dr. Alzate knows what he is doing and 1000 confident in himself. He removed a tumor from my brain and you can’t even tell I’m very impressed with his work and the passion he has for his patients and the work he does. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Very professional and was great at explaining my procedure to me.

I just came from there office and saw him for the first time. I found him to be very nice, but right to the point which is good. He treated me like a human being and my husband was there and liked him. He is taking it conservatively in hopes to avoid surgery on my neck and the disc is bone on bone and I appreciate that, but I might need surgery yet, but praying no. I also have a back issues, so it two fold. It is God's hands and when I read reviews and looked at him, well he is my doctor now

Can't say enough good things. If you need back surgery, this is the man! I was walking the dog the next day, my excruciating pain gone!

Dr. Alzate is a good surgeon. He does not have a good bed side manner. His office visits are run like an assembly line. He seem unwilling to listen to patients and unable to admit that he could have misspoke. I do not believe he knows or cares which patient is in front of him. He ordered superfluous tests and failed to fully inform me of all aspects of the surgery. When confronted with the fact he had omitted details, he refused to admit that is was even a possibility.

I have read all the reviews about this doctor, Some were horrible but I thought I should give him a chance. I came to his office for the first time, He was rude and did not treat me, his patient, like a human being at all. Patients come to a Dr. when they are in misery, They do not deserve to be talk down to with an arrogant tone of voice and with a demeaning attitude. He may have the knowledge to make big money but he does not´have the heart of a real doctor..

Dr Alzate preformed a cervical discectomy on me 2 weeks ago, and I am pain free! Within a week of my surgery, I didn’t even need pain meds! I would highly recommend Dr Alzate, he and his staff are amazing!

He remove my disc herination like a butcher. It didn't help at all. On the next visit he didn't wanna talk about it just prescribe me physical therapy. Visiting him was waste of time and money. Not helpful at all

This will be my second appointment so far with Dr. Alzate and I couldn't have been more comfortable seeing him. He makes you feel special and treats you with the upmost respect. He listens to you, then suggests a treatment plan immediately. He takes my feelings and my pain level into consideration right away. I couldn't be more pleased.
