    How was your appointment with Dr. Alva?

    Sep 14, 2022
    I have had an Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy from Dr Alva. He is an excellent doctor. Explains everything in simple terms so it's easy to understand. I needed a prescription written after a Friday procedure and Dr Alva called me Saturday morning at home giving me the details. I have been a patient for several years and have referred a family member and also a friend. Both were impressed with him.
