The best treatment is prevention. Finding a gynecologist to monitor your health and support your overall goals will allow you to enjoy a full, active lifestyle. Alvarez & Vinueza MD’s believes in focusing on total body wellness and healthy living. We recommend simple gynecological care, such as an annual exam, a Pap smear, a mammogram and a hormone valuation when indicated. As your dedicated health partner, our physicians will review the results of these assessments and make suggestions to facilitate the long-term objectives you wish to achieve.
Late adolescence is the recommended time to begin scheduling an annual well-woman exam and Pap smear. These simple health care visits can provide critical information about a woman’s health situation. During the visits, our physicians will perform a pelvic exam, Pap smear and evaluate breast health. Depending on age, we will encourage patients to schedule an annual mammogram. Many women also use this time to discuss family planning and evaluate birth control choices, such as birth control pills, NuvaRing hormone contraception, under-the-skin implants and IUD’s.
Life Transition Care
Often an uncertain time in a woman’s life, menopause is manageable. Our physicians can offer comprehensive treatment before, during and after this challenging process.
Our physicians will help you control hot flashes, schedule bone density screenings as needed and address other concerns, such as vaginal dryness and decreased sex drive. Because each patient is unique, our physicians employ both non-hormonal and hormone replacement treatment to help manage the symptoms of menopause.
We help our patients plan for healthy living but, should any issues arise, they will immediately handle these concerns. We will answer your questions and create a personalized treatment plan to deal with the problem at hand. Our practice can offer expert care for a variety of gynecological issues, including:
- Abnormal Pap smear results indicating HPV
- Treatment of PCOS and endometriosis
- Heavy or irregular menstrual cycles

“Dr. Alvarez is truly a gem in Miami. It is so difficult to find a doctor that is genuine as well as thorough. I have never felt rushed. He delivered my first baby and my whole pregnancy was such a great experience due to being under his care. His staff is also extremely helpful and the front desk ladies are very sweet. I appreciate that they always follow up on the same day whenever I’ve called with questions or concerns.”
“First i would like to thank Dr. Alvarez and all his staff, from front desk to his assistant gloria that is such of great person! For making a really good experience through all this year. Never felt so comfortable and peaceful attending this office. And beyond blessed to have Dr. Alvarez delivered my second born baby! Would always recommend Dr. Alvarez and his staff.”
“As a new patient, I was given paperwork immediately, and it was processed quickly after. I was offered a complimentary allergy testing as I waited to be seen, so that was a great time saver. Dr. Vinueza was very kind and relatable, there was also a female assistant in the room during the pap smear which I appreciated. I was sent my prescription with no issues. :)”
