Chicago, IL |
I heard Dr. Alva was skilled at solving hard cases like mine, so I went to see him.After seeing me once and performing an endoscopy however, his staff told me they found nothing abnormal & that I should follow up with my PCP.Still, I went in to see Dr. Alva once more, & he said there was nothing else he could do, & strongly suggested I take what he claimed were sleeping pills with no side effects indefinitely.They turned out to be very strong antidepressants with serious side effects.Worrisome.
