From Dr. Alvine
“My father was an orthopedic surgeon and has always been a great inspiration to me. He piqued my interest in the surgical specialty and instilled in me the belief that every patient is an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. It is my privilege to take care of people when they are in need.”
