Specialties

Dr. Anita A Alvarez-Cruz has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Senior Mother

I found this doctor for my geriatric mother. The first visit looked promising but then the office staff always delayed information and never gave correct info. The visits became shorter and the doctor wasn't prepared, forgot all the medication my mother was taking. I pulled her immediately from her care.

Excellent care from Dr. Cruz; Admin Staff Poor

I have never had so many issues trying to get I touch with or get a call back from staff at any doctor's office. I have waited 10+ days for a call back after getting CT scan follow-up done for a mass. That was after leaving at least 4 or 5 voicemail messages. Then when I finally received a call back they said I had to make an appointment which took another week. This is not the only time I have had the same issue, they have completed lab and radiology orders with incorrect information, 'forgot' to submit a request to my insurance for authorizations and referrals to specialists. It is unfortunate that the staff don't care about the patients. I have for that reason changed to a new insurance plan so I don't have to be stressed out about getting to see my doctor or the lack of care.

very much the best

Dr Alvarez is like an angel for me, she is very proffesional, smart and talented physician; the best of all is the way she approaches individuals, always with a beautiful smile. The fact that she has such a beautiful spanish makes me realize how talented she is. She should be recognized as one of the best physicians in houston tx.
