Dr. Alcarez was everything one could hope for in a PCP. She was attentive and informative, gave copious feedback which indicated that she truly listened and understood my concerns. This was a first visit with her for an annual physical asa new doctor under a new health plan. She spent a lot of time with me, answering my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully and then followed up in the evening with a call to confirm a suspected injury following radiology. She believes in proactive, preventive medicine, so this routine appointment included tests I've rarely ever gotten: EKG, hearing, lung capacity, nerve testing, and more. The medical staff were helpful, efficient and friendly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alcarez for several years, but this review is in reference to my most recent experience with the office. While I think she is a wonderful Dr., the staff in the office made several hugemistakes in my paperwork on my last visit. Several issues with the office, as follows: 1) I waited two hours PAST my appointment time to see Dr. Alcarez. I would have preferred that the office just reschedule my appointment, as they stated they knew she was running behind in appointments from the prior week. 2) I requested only an annual physical, and stated this several times throughout the appointment as well as on the forms I completed. Despite being very clear about this, several tests were run that were outside of my insurance coverage. I was not asked for consent regarding those tests and had trouble getting payment in network from my insurance company. 3) I changed my address a few months prior to this visit. I updated my address with the front desk staff and via forms when I visited the office. Eight months after my visit, I received a call from a COLLECTION AGENCY regarding a bill!!! I never received this bill because they were using my old address, so I requested that the collection agency provide proof of the bill. Upon receiving the copy, I was also quite disappointed to see that they had my phone number listed correctly on the bill - but never once bothered to call me before sending the bill for collection. Terrible service!!!!

I had a 330pm appointment and arrived about 30 minutes early because i knew paperwork had to be filled out as this was my first visit. I did not get seen by the doctor until about 515. That was a bitupsetting. Dr. Alcarez has great bed side manners and really wants to get to know the patient and hear their concerns. I did not feel rushed at all. She did apologize for the long wait after the visit, so that was much appreciated. She will definitely become my PCP.

The long wait is worth it . Dr. Alcarez sat with us for about 45 minutes addressing all of our concerns one by one without hesitation. I hadn't had a physical in 5+years & I appreciated her patience with all myquestions. She also referred me to Dr's who have a similar bedside manner ! I would definitely recommend her !
