Dr. Alper has been an amazing physician to me for the past few years. I will be moving on to a new provider with a great base yo build upon.

Over all not a good experience for anyone in the family, when anyone asked a question it felt as if the doctor thought they where dumb questions and was very short with all of us.

August 02, 2017

Dr. Alper was great with my son. She took all things into consideration and did not just brush me off. She interacted great with him, and gave feedback to our questions we had. Very happy with our experience.

July 11, 2017

she was a little rude I didn't appreciate it.. she could of had less of an attitude.. we are bubbly people so I expect atleast a good attitude

July 05, 2017

very thorough, kind and caring, willing to help us find out my daughters problem, she is the 5th doctor we have seen

May 02, 2017

The doctor lacked rapport building skills. Made an initial diagnosis after less than a minute. Poor education and explanation of symptoms and plan of assessment / treatment. Actually no explanation and wanted me to decide what to do next. Told me my child was the healthiest she's seen and clearly has not worked with children enough to understand how to build rapport and not talk about them in front of them. That can sometimes lead to misinformation and is not how I approach my practice with kids. She had us leaving telling us it was all in his head and to see a psychologist. The eye doctor diagnosed a visual problem. More rapport, tactful communication and most importantly patient education / support could go a long way!
