The MD was exceptional and she gave me every information I needed for my treatment. She spoke to me the very best way a doctor was supposed to talk to the patient and removed all my fears about my condition. She helped brought my life back by giving me much hope that I will be okay after the treatment.

A Patient at Rush University Medical Center - Oct 2021
Dr. Alvarado was highly recommended. Her bedside manners were the best. She relieved any concerns with her thorough explanation iof my procedures . Dr. Alvarado discussed the pro and con of my pricedure. She asked me if I knew what my diagnosis is. I connect with her immediately. She has such a warm demeanor. I did not feel like Dr.Alvarado was rushing to see her next Patient. My initial visit with Dr. Alvardo was excellent. Thank you.
