About Alexander J. Alvarez, MD, FAAAAI, FACAAI

  • Dr. Alvarez is a native Austinite. When he is not working, Dr. Alvarez enjoys jogging, traveling, hiking, spending time outdoors, and “enjoying life with my family.” Among his favorite locales are Lady Bird Lake and the Texas Hill Country.

I chose to become a physician to make a difference in people’s lives. It is a privilege to care for patients of all ages and see their health improve under my care. Being an Allergist and Immunologist gives me the opportunity to provide excellent treatment options to improve my patient’s health and quality of life. Treating the underlying allergic conditions with targeted therapies allows me to address the source of the patient’s disease instead of just the symptoms. I seek to provide evidence-based, high-quality, personalized care to all of my patients.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"

4.8out of 5
  • February 23, 2024

    We loved the time and care that each staff member took to care for our son. They were thorough and patient with our very nervous son. The nurse was excellent both as a care provider for our son and as teacher to the young lady training. She explained everything in such great detail and Dr. Alvarez was excellent. It is a drive for us but after the experience we had it is well worth it.

    Dr. Alvarez was great, he made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions thoroughly. I have an extensive medical background and he made sure that all my history and current medications were considered when addressing my problems.

    The wait times and next available appointments are too far away. At my appointment it was determined I needed I needed Allergy testing and the next available appointment is 7 weeks away.
