The office staff is so patient and understanding. If you have to see a specialist this is definately the providers you want for your child.

very good and happy overall. I wish my referring pediatrician and thisnspeciaolist had coordinated pertinent information I didn't know, like exact number of times she'd been on antibiotics for this issue in the past 2 years.

scheduler told us the appointment was at the main facility, but it was the south campus. had to drive an extra 2 hours and then wait as the dr was still willing to see us, which I thought was generous.

did not spend enough time examining my son. did notfully explain all options. very unprofessional. will never come back

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.
