5.0 Review from C.B. Source: Google Jan 17 2020

"Dr. Alvarez is one of the best doctors I've ever had. She is patient, kind, and genuinely dedicated to helping patients - all of which is much rarer among doctors than it should be. She walks me through her thought process when diagnosing issues, why she is choosing to run certain tests, what I should expect from medications/procedures, and discusses treatment plan options with me in detail. She listens to my treatment goals instead of just chasing her own agenda or ignoring my experiences in order to go with the most obvious (yet incorrect) solution (again, this should be expected - but instead it's very rare among doctors I've been to). She clearly knows a lot about GI issues, and is able to explain things clearly but not condescendingly to laypeople. The only issue is that you have to make an appointment at least a month out - obviously, since she's such a good doctor, she's very popular and busy! (But I have not had any emergencies, so perhaps it's easier to see her on short notice if you have a time-sensitive issue.) I definitely recommend her!!"

"I had my first colon screening last Friday, 6-28-19 with Dr. Snowberger at Old Town Endoscopy. Not knowing what expect, I must say the prep was not pleasant, but it's not supposed to be - all things considered. Dr. Snowberger and her staff were not only nice; they were KIND. There is a difference. Her lady at the office called me the day before and walked me through some concerns I had. Once at the facility, no one rushed me, each person explained their role and what I was going to go through with them during my visit. Dr. Snowberger came highly recommended by my Gyno Nurse, Melissa Lang and I'm so glad I took her advice. The pace was steady and over with faster than I thought it would be. I kept expecting discomfort after I left but it never happened. It all went so smooth. I was nauseous when I arrived but it went away once things got started and it never came back. It's still a bit of a mystery to me how well it went and how great I felt (and feel now) since it was done. VERY grateful my screening results were best case scenario and that I don't have to go through that yucky prep for another 10 years, but I know I will return to Dr. Snowberger and Old Town Endoscopy! Thank you Dr. Noel for such a great experience! Lisa (Sally) Johnston"

"I am giving Doctor Alvarez 5 stars because she seems to be a caring doctor that truly wants what's best for her patients. However, the office staff, specifically the woman that works at the front desk was extremely rude (not the lady with the grey hair and glasses, she was nice) to an elderly woman that had been sitting in the office, waiting for an hour and a half. When the elderly lady asked her how much longer, the woman scoffed at her and told her in a very condisending tone that they had to get a room for her. At this point, I get up from my chair to speak to the nice lady, and the rude lady interjects into the conversation with an attitude the size of Texas, 'I already told her we are waiting for a room'. I am appaled at the lack of caring or empathy this woman showed to someone 40 years older than her. Pathetic. Please teach your office staff to respect their elders."
