Our experience with this provider was excellent. Everyone in the office was friendly and talked to my daughter in a child friendly way.

I appreciate her understanding in my reasons of declining an endoscopy/biopsy for my 5 year old and continuing to have us as her patient for Celiac's

Dr. Garcia-Alverez has a great demeanor with both children and parents. She provides good explanations and outlines a road map for recovery & treatment. I was relieved to have her as a dr. for my child b/c she is very knowledgeable.

Dr. Garcia-Alvarez is judgmental, snarky, and not a good listener or explainer. In fact, I was very disappointed and surprised at her behavior as I, to this pt. have had positive experiences with Lutheran General docs. She is dismissive to parents' concerns and just ready to write a script or pass work & patients on to her nurse practitioner.

Dr. Garcia - Alvarez is a caring, hurting physician I loved how she interacted w/my son. She really listened to me as I voiced my concerns. She eased my worries too!
