Valley Neurology is a private practice specialty clinic. Every consultation and new patient visit is conducted by the physician.

Dr. Pamela L. Alvarez completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). She received the Excellence in Research Award for her work in Neurosciences as a Howard Hughes Research Fellow during her undergraduate years. The interest lead to a Master of Science degree in Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University. Presented with the option of pursuing either a research career or a clinical pathway, she chose the latter so that the acquired knowledge can be readily applied to patients afflicted with neurologic conditions.

At the Chicago Medical School, she continued doing research on thalamic nuclei earning a second Master of Science degree en route to her Medical Degree in 1999. Clinical specialty training in Neurology was done through an intense residency at the University of Michigan Hospitals through 2003.

Post doctoral training includes a mini Fellowship at Bowman Gray University in North Carolina.

After several years of neurologic practice in Washington and California, Dr. Alvarez recognized the utility of bridging Western medical techniques with traditional Eastern practices. She completed Medical Acupuncture through Helms Medical Institute program affiliated with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2009.

Dr. Alvarez is dedicated to hands-on patient care and management at Valley Neurology Clinic, Desert Hills Memory Care Center, Rancho Springs Medical Center, and Inland Valley Medical Center.
