Ratings for Dr. Benito A. Alvarez
Great doctor! He discovered a very rare condition while I was pregnant and successfully helped me manage without any complications. Communication between him and maternal fetal medicine doctors was great! He was very personable, and was very attentive and quick to follow up with calls. I felt very comfortable with him, and during the C-section he made me very comfortable as he explained everything going on while he was doing it. Patients are lucky to have him, and the students he teaches are lucky to learn from him. He is very popular so especially if pregnant I would suggest making all of your appts. for the 9 months up front because a couple times I ran into scheduling conflicts and could not see him.
Please be very careful if you are seeing this doctor. He failed to diagnose my preeclampsia. I had protein in my urine and he made the call not to take the baby early. I am still suffering the consequences of this mistake. I will never be the same.
Dr. Alvarez may be personable as many of the comments suggest, but he does not have the knowledge needed to be an OB. Ask him what he knows about petocin or cervidil and you will find out that he knows nothing about these two drugs although he administers them on a regular basis. He has no understanding of their side effects and fails to warn his patients of the severe side effects that these drugs may cause. I chose my doctors based on their skill level and knowledge and not their friendliness.
