Ratings for Dr. Nanette Alvarez
In 2012, Dr Alvarez responded to one of my multiple trips to the ER for atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation. When it got escalated to her from the Dr in ER she went through my symptoms thoroughly and explained everything to me. A week later I went into AF again and called her office to get her recommendation. The staff at the office tracked down Dr Alvarez and she encouraged me to get to the ER and she would see me straight away. Unheard of!!! She put me on a new drug program explaining the pro's and con's of the drug and also got me referred to an electrophysiologist cardio specialist who after tests had me scheduled for an RF Cardiac Ablation. Long story short 4 years since the procedure was performed by another skilled doctor I am clear of AF. Her attention to detail, prompt response, and her staff finding her was just amazing. My ratings speak to her other excellent attributes.

I have been seeing Dr. Alvarez for a number of years. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding connective tissue disorders and is very thorough. She does not prescribe medications needlessly. She takes her time to provide thorough explanations. I have found her clinic staff to be wonderfully supportive and quick to respond. When I go for my visits, I always feel as if I am heard and respected as an individual, physically and emotionally.
Dr. Alvarez has been my Adult Cardio Doc for a number of years. I think she is one of the best around. I trust her 100%. Up front, no-nonsense and a VERY caring person. Her and her staff are Alberta Grade A-1 in my books. I have a very complex heart problem, she is very compitent.
A wonderful cardiac doctor with a heart! She was an integral part of our life as my sister's congenital heart was wearing out. Her concern for my sister having a comfortable quality of life was always evident and her respite care to assist the family was amazing. A very special lady!
I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for quite a number of years and am exceptionally satisfied. She is thorough and proactive and always takes the time to answer questions with honesty and understanding. I have the greatest respect for her as a doctor and appreciate her care and her support.
Best ever. She has been my doc since 1999. Helped explain everything and isn't afraid to tell the whole truth, not just what will help her further. She is thurough and complete and has excellent bedside manners. That is exactly what a sick person needs to make them feel better. I recommend her to anyone with Marfan Syndrome. I visit from out of province because she is the only one I trust.
