appointments are never on time. arrived early and waited over an hour after my scheduled appointment time and had to cancel later appointments that were previously scheduled. this is starting to become a real nuisance. Understand that the Dr has a high patient load, but this appointment took way too long to schedule. my poor son has been struggling with non-stop ear infections, and it took at least a good 4 months to get him to be seen. I see that as unacceptable to have a child suffer like that for so long.

Dr. Alper and everyone in the Alligator pod were wonderful. Dr. Alper took time out to talk directly to my daughter about cats in effort to ease her nervousness. Dr. Alper was very friendly and pleasant.

It has been a pleasure to have Dr. Alper and his team care for both my children and their ears. We've been seeing him for almost 10 years now and he really knows how to make some scary or stressful situations more pleasant. He's the best physician when it comes to dealing with children. Thank You.
