The best vet I have ever dealt with in the tri-state area and with my menagerie through the years, that is a long list! Dr. Alvarez is not only knowledgeable, but she has a demeanor that puts humans and pets at ease. She takes a minimalist approach to care, rather than doing extraneous procedures or just throwing meds at problems to see what works. When she does recommend something, I trust her completely. Her rates are more than fair, too. There is not one thing I don't like about this practice. I even brought my Akita in for a welcome tour to get her used to the space and staff in advance of our first appointment, and everyone there went out of their way to give her pets and treats so next time we showed up, she ran through the door, tail wagging to see her new friends. Dr. Alvarez has also helped my elderly (19 year old) cat through two bouts of pancreatitis and helped me to not have an anxiety attack during the whole ordea!. Again, nothing but praise for Dr. Alvarez and her staff. So grateful to have found them.
When comparing them to others I have visited for the same condition, they are among the best I have seen. My rescue dog Jessie is 8 years old and has suffered from a full blown yeast infection for years. She is always itchy,chewing her paws and body, and smells bad. We've gone to many vets and specialists who wanted to put her on a medication that could have damaged her liver. When Dr. Alvarez met her she suggested a food allergy test (What? All the doctors told me there's no such thing!) And YES! Jessie has allergies to some of the food she's been eating like beef (bones). potatoes, etc. Her office told me what brand of food she can eat and she stopped itching immediately. We are forever grateful--she's terrific!
