I went to Dr. Alfaro for a neuropsychological test. That was a huge mistake. She wrote significant amounts of incorrect information about me in her report (she does not listen), and therefore came up with incorrect recommendations and conclusions. When I tried to get her to fix the report and analysis so that it actually reflected me as a patient, she refused. I even submitted the corrections to her in writing and had another doctor call her to help explain even further. Even though her mistakes were obvious and shouldn't have needed so much explaining. After all this, her report provided no useful information for the treatment of my case, plus her qualitative takeaways contradicted her own neuropsychological data on me. Whatever you do, stay away from her practice!
