Sun City, CA |
I would absolutely NOT recommend Dr Alvarez. In my initial appointment i found her to be short, cool, did not take the time to explain her findings / reasoning re medical assessment. She was curt in her responses. She left the room saying she was going to "look for information from my referring MD" and she did not / would not return. Her nurse said she was not available to answer my remaining questions.

Dr. Alvarez is outstanding. She is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. I went to Dr. Alvarez for a second opinion and she was outstanding!
in Fallbrook, CA |
She spent a good amount of time with us, worked with the family and provided us with advice on next steps. It was a good experience overall.
in Murrieta, CA |
Dr. unavailable and does not consider patients medical condition. This office needs to conduct triage for patients, new or not, appointments available or not. On a pain level of 1 to 10, patient is about 20, blood pressure over 180 because of pain. Problem is trigeminal neurolgia and current attack has lasted over 8 hours. patient unable to speak, chew, or swallow. thanks for your concern.
in Riverside, CA |
Love her! Went for migraines and she really improved the quality of my life. She is friendly, compassionate and patient. I highly recommend her, she does spend quality of time with each patient. I would rather wait a few minutes and have her not rush my appointment.
