we always have a great experience here.

Dr. Alper and his staff have treated both my children and has always been wonderful!

September 16, 2016

Overall, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. I just felt like the examination itself was cursory and he probably spent only about 5 or so minutes with us. But he addressed the problem correctly and seemed to really care; he gave us good advice moving forward, and we scheduled a follow-up for two months from now.

everything was good! no problems here.

The doctor had diagnosed our son before even coming in the exam room. I was still filling out the paperwork that contained his current health information so he did not even have the current medical complaint info. He based his diagnosis on what records existed in UPMC's system rather than listen to the history of our son's ongoing sinus problems that had been treated outside that system (by primary care). He told us what was causing the problem before even looking in our son's ears and nose and handed me papers on how to control acid reflux. When we tried to tell him that the issue he blamed was under control, he dismissed us. He also disregarded that our son is 16 years old and talked only to me as if our son was a child. He spent all of about 5 minutes in the exam room.

We waited almost 2 hours for a very short follow up appointment

This was our first visit and Dr Al and the entire staff was amazing

we love dr Alper

The doctor and staff were very helpful. They had asked about some health information at the start of the visit and I had given them corrections regarding current allergies and a diagnosis, and they had not updated that information on the paperwork that I was sent home with. I don't think it's relevant to what I'll need to do to care for my child, but it could be confusing since it's inaccurate.
