Patient reviews for Dr. Edward Alvarez
Excellent experience. Very sensitive to patient discomfort and positive bedside manner. Would highly recommend.
Es un magnífico doctor y además habla español. Se tomó su tiempo conmigo.
Dr. Alvarez is very professional and time-sensitive with schedules. He doesn't rush but is still very efficient. I've never had anything but a great experience with him.
Great dentist and his staff is superb making it an exceptional experience.
Very professional staff
They are very nice people who have every technological tool to restore your smile and happiness. Thank you!
Always fantastic personalized service.
Dr. Alvarez and his staff take the time to make sure your needs are met, you are comfortable, and receiving the best care possible. They pay close attention to see if you are having any pain or discomfort and treats you for it. Temporary implants were placed and fractured teeth were removed. Dr. Alvarez is incredibly skilled and I am truly satisfied with his work. I will no doubt return and I definitely recommend his practice.
Best dentist in town.
Dr. Alvarez is very skilled and yet very personable. He never rushes the visit and is careful to make sure everything is as painless as possible.
Dr Alvarez was amazing, getting a root canal and fillings is probably one of the most awful experiences And he made me it relaxing, painless, and tolerable. highly highly recommended!
Dr Alvarez is the best dentist imaginable--kind, patient, technically brilliant.
Dr. Alvarez now uses a sophisticated, technology-assisted procedure for administering anesthesia that is virtually painless In addition, numbness from the anesthesia disappears a few minutes after the treatment (in may case, replacement of two fillings) has been completed. Dr. Alvarez continues to operate at the forefront of developments in dental care. As always, he and his staff were unquestionably professional, friendly, and caring. As a patient I always feel they are totally committed to my care and comfort.
Always an incredible visit. Dr. Alvarez is so attentive and patient. Karen and Claudia are also so amazing and helpful. Highly recommend!
I've been going to Dr Alvarez for about eight years. He's a kind, calm, and thoughtful person who happens to be also a fantastic dentist. He has the most up-to-date computerized equipment, including a 3-D mill that manufactures crowns and bridges right there in his office. Saves time and fitting woes. I have terrible teeth due to genes and childhood negligence. I'm so grateful to have found him.
Dr. Alvarez was extremely professional and took the time to understand my specific needs. I did not feel rushed and he was able to stick to the the appointment I had set. I look forward to seeing him in the future!
I got exactly what I asked for. . . Offices is very clean.
Dr. Alvarez is a real gem. Caring, professional and detail oriented. Highly recommended!
Always a great experience with Dr Alvarez. Left in no pain.
I grew up with a serious Dental Phobia that gave me very bad anxiety when it came time to go to the Dentist. After my time With Dr. Alvarez that anxiety has ceased. Thank you Sir
Dr Alvarez is a brilliant dentist, and a kind and gentle man. He keeps up on the most advanced technology, which means that he's able to keep procedures to a minimal amount of time and pain. He may be the best dentist in New York.
Dr Alverez is absolutely amazing. I've been a patient for several years and he always does great work, is accommodating and super considerate of dental work not being my favorite thing. I've referred many friends to him and they all love him too. A+++++
Dr. Alvarez and his staff are the best! I have been using him as my dentist for over 15 years. I highly recommend him.
Always the best!! and great staff! Thx!!
I have been a patient for many years. Dr. Alvarez and his staff are consulate professionals. I am always completely satisfied with my care, their concern for my wellbeing, and their friendly and courteous manner.
I love Dr. Alvarez!! He is truly the best!! I've always had a fear of the dentist. He took all of that fear away. Bedside manner is the greatest too. Very warm, always making sure I'm ok and comfortable.
Superior techniques along with superior care!!!!!! My mother loves to accompany me on all my dental visits. She loves Dr. Alvarez and his amazing staff. They always make us feel like we are visiting family. Alvarez for President!!!!! And Karen for White House Chief!!!!!
This is a professional and immediately clean office. Dr. Alvarez is a joy to be around and an amazing doctor. I travel from Pennsylvania to Manhattan to get the best care.
A superb, caring and professional staff. Highly recommended.
Extremely professional and thorough. Highly recommend.
Dr. Alvarez is such a wonderful doctor, he takes his time, is patient, and is a true artist when it comes to the Botox I have used him for. He is passionate about his job and that's what I appreciate most.
Dr. Alvarez and his staff are extraordinarily helpful and friendly. I have recieved multiple fillings here and I can say that without a doubt, these have been the most pain-free and pleasant instances of dental work I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend this office enough.
I am so afraid of going to a dentist but Dr. Alvarez changed that fear for me! He has the magic touch and a very pleasant bed side manner! I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez as he is a perfectionist and a professional! I have been going to him for the last 5 years.. I have the best smile ever!
I've been a patient so long it is like family when I walk in. They only schedule one patient at a time so there's never a wait and I always have their full attention. Dr. Alvarez gives the best cleanings, I actually don't mind going to the dentist. I used to be a chicken and need gas or a topical for cleanings, now I don't need anything. I have total confidence in him.
Edward is the best dentist I've ever been treated by. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and answered every question I have about the process. You can tell he has a passion for his work and has your best interests in mind. He has also surrounded himself with a staff that is professional, attentive and kind. Every part of the process is pleasant and comfortable, even when they're drilling at your teeth. I can't recommend enough.
Amazing Doctor and staff. He takes his time to make sure the job is done right!!!! It was late and didn't rush my appt at all. The staff didn't make me feel as if I was holding them up they made me feel welcomed. I will continue to drive from Nassau county into the city to see Dr Alvarez and staff
A great dentist and a good man. I've been visiting for over a decade and never had a problem.
Amazingly detail oriented and patient. Fairly priced.
I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez's for 14 years. I have had several dentists prior to Dr. Alvarez and none of them come close to his attention to detail, compassion, and empathy to you as a patient. I will write a longer review at a later date, but if you are tired of dealing with dentists that deal with you as if you are bringing in your car to be fixed, Dr. Alvarez will be a breath of fresh air.
Dr. Alvarez is a rare and remarkable dentist. I have been seeing him for nearly 20 years, and he is consistently prompt, professional and personable. He manages to have you always feel that his attention is directed only to you. He and his staff make sure the dental treatment is as comfortable as possible. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Amazing Dr!!! Will definitely be going back
I am 33 and have had about 5 dentists in my life. I started seeing Dr. Alvarez about a year ago and he will be my dentist until he retires. Extreme attention to detail. Excellent bedside manner. Doesn't push anything extra on you that you don't need. I wouldn't write this unless I meant it. Highly recommend.
He's really gentle, smart and intuitive. He's does a great job and I would highly recommend!
Dr Alvarez always takes special care to make me feel at ease. He takes the time to answer any questions and concerns I have pertaining to my visits. Whether it's a big issue or a small one, with my teeth. It's pretty much a pleasure going to see him!
I have been struggling with new crowns/bridge I had done elsewhere. I went to Dr.Alvarez at a friend's recommendation. He did an amazing job on an upper anterior reconstruction. I am picky about my dentist since I was in the industry for many years, and I have to say....he is TERRIFIC and my smile is BEAUTIFUL!! He is a perfectionist (which I appreciate) with color and shape of the bridge/veneers. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Alvarez without hesitation.
Dr Alvarez is technically excellent but compassionate as well. A great staff. Can't say enough about how pleasant my experience was.
Dr. Alvarez is an excellent dentist!
My visit was top notch and as comfortable as can be expected for the type of procedures performed. Considering the amount of dentists that I have been to in the past, I would say that Dr. A provides services that are well above average. However, if you need any crowns for your more visible teeth, discuss your options with him. The crown moulding machine is not a good option for asthetic reasons.
This was a routine visit for a cleaning, X-rays, and oral exam. As usual, Dr. Alvarez performed the cleaning and exam personally. And, as usual, he was thorough, gentle, friendly, and genuinely concerned about the health of my mouth and my general well-being. I am convinced that this exam was, again, only routine, and not some elaborate procedure, because of Dr. Alvarez's consistent attentiveness and skill in caring for my mouth. No need for me to shop around; I will stick with Dr. Alvarez.
