My lil nurse was the only one who understood my struggle. I had endo and colonoscopy the same day...I wake up in more pain than I ever felt in 18 hours of labor and they tried to rush me out the door...I ended up in the bathroom throwing up a Lil blood, which never occurred. I believe I just may have had a difficult case they had to work on my esophagus and remove whatever tumors were visible. It's a couple years later. I'm needing hernia surgery and I'm fearful. I'm scared of the lack of compassion and the rushed feeling. Oh...they gave nothing...nothing for pain after being in my intestine stretching my esophagus and burning away strictures in my esophagus and removing stuff from the other end...it's an outpatient procedure, but for people having 2 different procedures at the same time...I will tell you never again. I cried like a baby 3 days in pain.

He may be a good doctor. He is over booked, to long waiting times. Get the sense that you are on an assemble line. Uses his P.A. for to much and first comes in to see you if you complain about the waiting time. His P.A. does not come across as friendly, more snobbish.Last appt. sat and waited for 30 got tired of waiting and left. They called me on cellphone 50min after appt. time, told them I had left and that Dr. Alvarez was fired.

He might be an exceptional doctor but I NEED to ask questions and tell him of my concerns. I don't want to feel as if I'm just number 20 or so in his day.
