June 20, 2016

I waited in the waiting room for 3 hours then additional hour waiting on the doctor

May 26, 2016

We have moved out of state and will always come back to Dr. Alper. We trust and respect her more than any other provider we have ever met.

March 21, 2016

First time we saw Dr Alper. Very pleased with her concern and the direction she has steered us in.

March 17, 2016

This was an initial, informational visit during which Dr. Alper did an excellent job in explaining our child's EEG study, in answering our questions, and in addressing our concerns.

March 17, 2016

Dr Alper was very frustrated during this appointment. She expressed several times that our appointment should have been with one of the neurologists who saw my daughter when she was admitted at Children's Hospital in January. In addition, she hadn't reviewed any of my daughters chart prior to the visit. I was given only a few minutes to attempt to explain four+ months of medical history. We traveled two hours from Erie for this appointment and it was a complete waste of our time. In addition it was very frustrating for my daughter.

January 06, 2016

I have no complaints with children's hospital or dr apler. All of the staff are amazing and I would recommend them to any parent

January 05, 2016

We are happy to have Dr. Alper on our daughter's team to aid in wellness

August 12, 2015

Excellent

February 05, 2015

I felt very rushed and misunderstood throughout our appointment. I left more confused and with more questions than when I entered. I feel like my concerns were brushed off and all of the questions I had were answered very vaguely. This is very unfortunate because I am typically very easy to please. I had a lot of anxiety about this neurology appointment and my frustration level was at an all time high after leaving this appointment.
