Dr. Alper was outstanding. Thank you.

January 24, 2017

frustrating that you have to relay questions thru a third party and that you can only speak with physician during an office visit.

I wasn't clear on understanding. the drs directions on meds. the discharge papers wrent thorough enough for me to to get a clear picture on the plan for my daughter. other than that dr is very thorough.

Dr. Alper very carefully addressed all of our questions and concerns. she is a very caring and competent physician.

August 18, 2016

Dr. Alper was attentive to my child and took time to listen to my concerns about my child's behavior and past history. It was apparent that she had studied the written information I provided to her prior to my child's appointment. I would have liked some additional information regarding the reason Dr. Alper feels my child is engaging in certain behaviors. I felt a sense of relief that Dr. Alper did order tests to investigate further and rule out or identify any potential medical issues with my child.

Wasn't happy at all with provider she didnt to want to be brothered with my child since my child couldnt verbalize what was going on

July 07, 2016

The doctor we saw was extremely rude and I will be requesting to see a new neurologist or go elsewhere.

June 27, 2016

we waited 4 months for this appt for a chronic condition my child has been having. I felt the Dr was very dismissive, said it really couldn't be true. Seemed fairly uninterested in her generally. Told us that she needed an mri and why didn't we ever do one. I said she has braces and she said they could still do it or I should have them removed. Told us she needed a psych consult, now my daughter thinks there is something wrong with her. Her bedside manner was not friendly or very concerned. Said besides the test there was nothing she could do for her and didn't feel the need to see her again. Gave me the number to call for the test results. She never even acknowledged that she looked at the CT or any tests or appts we had already had except her med list. Told me I should wean her off her meds with noconcern forhow to manage the pain.

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