Patient Comments (2)
Columbus, GA |
Staff are disorganized and do not do what they say they will do. I became extremely frustrated with the repeated lack or response from the staff. Dr. Alvarez did not seem to remember anything about my case, and gave conflicting advice. He told me that he would schedule certain tests, which never happened. I would not recommend.

I think Dr. Alvarez is an awesome doctor! He will try to get it right the first time, however, if something isn't working, he will try and try and try again until he finds the right mix of medication that works. He is also willing to try what the patients wants to try to see if that works as well. I like that he is easy to talk to and he does listen! I have recommended him to many and will continue to do so!
