 |  Dr. having affair with employee  |  show details
by Marly W. on Jun 27th, 2013

I was at the office seeing Dr. Alvarez when I over heard him telling someone he was having an affair with a former employee. The name he gave his lover was Florita. He was telling this other person( in the exam room next to mine) she works for an insurance company called Gem Care! I was baffled as this is my insurance. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He stated he was forming another life behind his family's back!!! Are you kidding me? I feel very sorry for his family and I wish I knew how to contact them to make them aware of his plans. I will never return. Unethical business practice. Does anyone know how to report this Doctor and to what agency? Last I checked it was illegal to sleep with an employee especially for a "professional" to do this. Sick man!

Quack, bought my Dr's practice 2 and a half years ago and still couldn't tell you what the Dr looks like. He had a Nurse practitioner see all of his patients. After taking same prescription for numerous years the only Dr that wants you to come in every 6 months f before giving a refill, and I'm talking a prescription for High blood pressure, Acid reflux, etc (not pain meds) only so he can charge your insurance for a visit..

I don't recommend Dr. Carlos Alvarez at all. He's not the person that everyone thinks he does'nt really know what his doing. Was going there for hair loss end up giving me depression and thyroid pills did'nt want to send me with Dermotalogy. Then he wanted to put me in a diet witch that was not my reason for going there at the end he wanted to send me with the sycology he is the one that should go he's a real actor..

I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez now for about 2 years and I really enjoy the staff. He is an awesome doctor! I have never met anyone that takes more interest in you as a patient and human being. I have sent him several friends and family members who all like him and his staff a lot. Sometimes you do wait but the wait is well worth it.
