5.0 Review from C.B. Source: Google May 25 2020

"Dr. Alvarez is one of the best doctors I've ever had. She is patient, kind, and genuinely dedicated to helping patients - all of which is much rarer among doctors than it should be. She walks me through her thought process when diagnosing issues, why she is choosing to run certain tests, what I should expect from medications/procedures, and discusses treatment plan options with me in detail. She listens to my treatment goals instead of just chasing her own agenda or ignoring my experiences in order to go with the most obvious (yet incorrect) solution (again, this should be expected - but instead it's very rare among doctors I've been to). She clearly knows a lot about GI issues, and is able to explain things clearly but not condescendingly to laypeople. The only issue is that you have to make an appointment at least a month out - obviously, since she's such a good doctor, she's very popular and busy! (But I have not had any emergencies, so perhaps it's easier to see her on short notice if you have a time-sensitive issue.) I definitely recommend her!!"

5.0 Review from D.H. Source: Google May 25 2018

"I am giving Doctor Alvarez 5 stars because she seems to be a caring doctor that truly wants what's best for her patients. However, the office staff, specifically the woman that works at the front desk was extremely rude (not the lady with the grey hair and glasses, she was nice) to an elderly woman that had been sitting in the office, waiting for an hour and a half. When the elderly lady asked her how much longer, the woman scoffed at her and told her in a very condisending tone that they had to get a room for her. At this point, I get up from my chair to speak to the nice lady, and the rude lady interjects into the conversation with an attitude the size of Texas, 'I already told her we are waiting for a room'. I am appaled at the lack of caring or empathy this woman showed to someone 40 years older than her. Pathetic. Please teach your office staff to respect their elders."
