My father was treated by her today for aortic stenosis. I'm a physician and recognize quality of care. Dr Alvarez is bright, compassionate, capable and a diamond in the rough. I highly recommend her as a cardiologist for both critical and common cardiac disorders. I'm so happy my father has her as his doctor. Dr Steve Gillon
