Dr. Alvarado is the best Dr. I've ever had. She makes me feel at ease and my time with her has never felt rushed. I feel comfortable telling her about any health concern. She is also proactive about ruling out any possible diseases.

I thought Dr. Alvarado was very nice, very professional. If you want a really good doctor, I don't think you can do better in the LA area. I would give her excellent ratings except I had a doctor in salt Lakecity that I LOVED. She and I had a rapport that I never developed with Dr. Alvarado, but I think that was only because I wasn't there long enough and didn't really have any reason to see her. My old doctor saw me thru the death of my mother (she was my mom's primary care physician as well) and so it just really forged a bond. That being said, Dr. Alvarado was VERY nice, and i think I can recommend her very highly.

The medical history forms etc before you go in to see her were quite long though but overallI feel that the more she knows about you the better she can understand and help you. Will definitely come back and make her my general doctor!

I went for a Pre-Op appt and she was very thorough in asking questions not just about medical check ups directly related to the surgery, but checked me out for other issues or complications that could come up. She even calledmy surgeon on the spot to ensure she didnt miss anything. She really resolved my fears about having surgery. Great bedside manner.
