I am just beginning my battle with ovarian cancer. Dr. Alvarez was recommended to me by two close family friends who are doctors. From my first appointment I was impressed and knew he really cared about me and my fight. I have been so impressed with the prompt return of calls made to his office. The entire staff shows compassion and great concern. I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez

Dr. Alvarez is a very kind and compassionate doctor, willing to make himself available to our family when my mother-in-law was fighting her battle with ovarian cancer. He went above and beyond what was expected of him in his care and concern for her, and for the constant questions we had for him regarding her care. He was very patient with us and explained everything very thoroughly. Not many doctors will take the time to hand-write a letter to family, but he did, and we are forever grateful.

I am a RN and was referred to him and I would not recommend using him or UAB. I was pleased with him in the office until it come down to having my procedure done a resident came in as they were getting me ready for surgery I made it clear I did not want him taking part in my surgery and let Dr.Alvarez know this..after my procedure I could not feel my left thigh..which was very concerning to me..he said just don't stand to anything hot!! Too much to type here
