If I had not had them in writing I would not have remembered anything as the after care instructions provided after my surgery went in one ear and out the other.

At this point in my care provided by Dr. Alvarado has been minimal I feel we are in the gathering of information. Until it comes to absolute decision making I can't commit to referral The possibility is looking highly.

Dr. Alvarado was very kind and thoughtful. He got me scheduled for surgery quite quickly. He listened to my concerns and was responsive to them. Everyone on my care team has been impressive and kind. They take time to treat you like a person and are super competent. I definitely would recommend UCSF.

Dr Alvarado explained the risks of ALND vs radiation and trial outcomes based on clinical data. He was very informative and answered my questions before I asked them! I found Dr Alvarado to be engaging personable reassuring and comprehensive.

I tried expressing to Dr Alvarado that this condition that my dr sent me for is interrupting my daily life and asked for ways I could help alleviate the pain and discomfort as far as things to heat etc; and he acted as if he didn't even care
