I cannot be more fortunate to have such a kind and caring Doctor such as Dr Alvarado. I have been a patient for just over a year. He is ALWAYS very attentive and takes whatever time required to discuss my situation and answer any questions I may have. I have never had to wait more than 15-20 minutes after arriving and usually only 5-10 minutes. Also, a very special thanks to NP Patricia, Anesthesiologist Jim, Dr Karasek and the entire kind, courteous, and professional staff. God bless you all:)

It is difficult to get an appointment and when you leave a message, it is NEVER returned. I was left for three weeks with NO MEDICATION. I am referring to NO CYMBALTA, NO LYRICA and NO HYDROCODONE. It is like they simply don't care. The pain was so bad and my bp was 180/105. NO ONE returned any calls. I might as well have been on an abandoned island somewhere alone.

Dr. Alvarado is what I wish all doctors were... a person first. He involves the patient in the patient's care. He listens. He understands and decides on a course of treatment. He doesn't think he's God. I've been getting treatment for chronic back pain from him for four years and because of him I can continue to function. I would recommend anyone with back or neck issues to use his services. Excellent doctor, responsive staff.

i missed an appt and was told i could not get a refill on a narcotic pain med i had been on for about a year, they refuse to grant me another appt due to upcoming vacation or something. i was extremely concerned about withdrawal from suddenly stopping meds, was then treated like a drug seeking addict. they are very rude and extremely insensitive. i wouldnt send my dog to them. also i still owe the a lot of money because after informing them 4 times of my new address THEY SUCK
