I was "treated" by Dr. Alva in February. I was rushed in, rushed out, and none of my phone calls were returned. I have never left a poor review in my life, but in my opinion "Dr." Alva is only interested in charging people money for a misdiagnosis and getting them out the door as quickly as possible to rip off the next patient. I called his office 3 times two days after my initial appointment complaining of pain and discomfort. No one called me back. Now charging $200. For what? HORRIBLE CARE

The staff gossips while patients are waiting in the lobby. My refferal was never submitted for overlook hospital, ended up recieving dozens of bills and when I called in I would always be assured that someone would call me back, I received a call finally weeks later by the office admin who assured me it was my fault and refused to look into the matter. Horrible service dr was okay but barely spends time with patient 5 minutes in and out, got the impression he doesnt value patients. look elsewher
