I've been seeing Dr. Alvarez for about 5 years. I started going to him for a blood clot, and have had some other issues through the years, and he has been there for me throughout! Now that I am in remission from my illnesses I still see him once or twice a year to check in and assess my overall health. He even supports my holistic healing methods. You sometimes have to wait a little past your appointment, but that is because he spends so much time talking to you and making you feel important.
