Ruben Alvero, MD
I strive to be patient, transparent and candid with patients. I understand that they want to know the truth, and while sometimes the truth can be hard, in the end they are appreciative of honesty and forthrightness.

Meet Dr. Ruben Alvero
A graduate of Harvard University, Dr. Ruben Alvero received his medical degree from the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD. He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C., and a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Alvero enjoyed a 27-year career with the U.S. Army.
Prior to joining Women & Infants Hospital, Dr. Alvero was the division director for reproductive endocrinology and infertility and vice chairman for education in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he was also a professor of obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Alvero was a founding member of the University of Colorado’s Center for Surgical Innovation and served on its board of directors.
Dr. Alvero also sees patients through Women & Infants’ Menopause Program.
Approach to treatment
Dr. Alvero was drawn to reproductive endocrinology and infertility because he wants to help his patients achieve their dreams of having a family. In addition, he has the opportunity to participate in research that helps to improve the care of his patients. In Dr. Alvero’s world, no one day is the same. He likes seeing a variety of patients as well as helping couples that may have lost hope find a solution to their difficulties.
Dr. Alvero treats every patient with individualized care, understanding that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to a patient’s challenges. Dr. Alvero appreciates working with a dedicated team of nurses, embryologists, doctors and administrative staff whose mission is to help patients achieve their goals.
When working with patients, Dr. Alvero tries to use the least aggressive, least invasive and least expensive approach to care first, and tries to reserve complex regimens for those who fail to have success with simpler methods.
Having recently relocated to Rhode Island from Colorado, Dr. Alvero looks forward to reacquainting himself with sailing and rowing. He was a competitive rower in college and sailed in high school. In his spare time, Dr. Alvero also enjoys cooking and playing classical guitar.
