Patient Comments (1)
in Austin, TX |
One word: Hubris. Had been attending regular check ups with Dr Alvarez, concerned about a rash that had developed around my midsection. He brushed it off as a skin condition (i.e. eczema) when, upon further consultation with another Doctor, it was confirmed to be cancer. At this point it was too late. Every single consultation, he dismissed concerns stating that he was an expert and that he knew what cancer looked like. Sadly, he was completely wrong.
