Verified Patient Reviews
I really liked Dr. Alvarado! The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. I was seen right away, and Dr. Alvarado was thorough but quick with the appointment. I highly recommend her!
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.
Really great experience with Dr. Alvarado- I did not wait very long to see her and she was really nice and answered all of my questions and offered options. I would definitely recommend her and will be coming back for future issues.
Very helpful and understanding. Also very personable, as well as the staff
Dr. Alvarado was very sweet and easy to talk to. Her office was quite busy and she still took plenty of time to get to know me and ask questions about my history. Highly recommended!
From the moment I arrived the staff were professional, courteous. Dr was 100% on time, no waiting. Dr Alvarado was extremely thorough, understanding and had a wonderful bedside manner. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking for a new Dr.
I am very pleased with Dr Alvarado and have received very good care . She has been my internist for over 2 years and my wife's for over 3. She is friendly, professional, thorough, and listens to you and answers all of my questions. Her staff is always pleasant.
Great office management and great appointment with new doctor. Happy to have found such a terrific office.

Dr. Alvarado was great! Her staff was all very nice, and very helpful from the minute I got there. Dr. Alvarado herself was very friendly, and did a good job addressing what I came in for. I would definitely go back, and I would recommend her to any of my friends looking for a doctor.
Dr. Alvarado is a young, smart, and professional physician. I was as impressed by her thoroughness and knowledge as I was by her warm bedside manner. I'm glad to have found her. Lisa D
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 Lake city 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.
Always listens to me and hears what my medical concerns are when I meet with her.
Dr. Alvarado was great! She is very personable and very knowledgeable. She is also very tech savvy and quickly pulled up my information on her tablet to review my history and sent my prescription quickly to the local pharmacy (it was ready before I got there!).
She is a great doctor because she listens. I have had the hardest time finding a doctor who would acknowledge that something was wrong. Thanks to her, I am now able to seek out treatment to feel better.
On time, listens, asks the right questions and is very thorough. Excellent "bedside manner." Highly recommended.
Dr. Alvarado addressed every concern and question I had in a friendly and professional manner.
She was very professional and understanding.
Dr. Alvarado was extremely friendly and made you feel comfortable talking to her. She's very positive and understanding as well which is great! The medical history forms etc before you go in to see her were quite long though but overall I 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 am so relieved to find such a competent and compassionate doctor in Pasadena! She's wonderful.
I feel so lucky to have such a great Dr! Knowledgeable, caring, takes time with you and really listens! Her staff is great too. A doctor like this is almost unheard of in this day and age! Personal attention, great care, apps scheduled with ample time, office runs on time- unbelievably great! She is the best!
On my first visit with Dr. Alvarado she was so friendly and helpful. She really put me at ease about my health concerns and gave great advice. I was in and out relatively quickly without feeling rushed. Her staff was very nice and professional. I have found my new doctor that I will be with for a long time!
Dr.alvarado was wonderful
I came to her with a feeling of hopelessness and frustration because of my illness and having many doctors not take the time to listen. I left the office happy and full of life. She gave me hope and took her time listening to me. I love her! I'm very greatful she was recommended to me.
I enjoyed my first visit with Dr. Alvardo. She was kind, thoughtful and insightful. She listened to my history and concerns and was very conservative in her approach. Happy to say she will be my doctor from now on!
A gifted healer
Very personable easy to talk too . I wish I could continue to see her as my personal physician. My employer as of 03/01 switching to Aetna HMO

Dr. Alvarado was very friendly and thorough!
I felt she listened and communicated well, in addition to being knowledgeable when asked specific questions.
Dr Alvarado was great - my only feedback is that I left two messages requesting an adjustement in time of my appointment but no one called me back.
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 called my surgeon on the spot to ensure she didnt miss anything. She really resolved my fears about having surgery. Great bedside manner.
Me gustó la Dra. Es profesional en su trato, muy asertiva, amable y definitivamente se tomó su tiempo para hacer el diagnostico.
Nice conversational full of info and suggestions. She listened and took the appropriate steps for complete diagnosis and treatment.
