The Best!

I have had 4 different surgeries with Dr. Alford. He is very professional and is very concerned with how I am doing, both before and after surgery. I couldn't ask for a better, more attentive & caring surgeon.

abused

This guy is the worst doctor on the face of planet earth. His assistant is a rude, nasty person. Go anywhere but this guy's practice.

Superstar

Overall one of the best shoulder specialists in the country. Combine that with his compassionate personality and friendly and understanding bedside manner, and I would recommend anyone with a shoulder problem to him for help. Rhode Island is lucky to have him.

does not have patient best interest in mind

I need surgery on my shoulder. Dr is making me wait though the physical therapist said there is no reason to wait. this is my decision and dr. Alford has made me feel very uncomfortable. I can no longer perform my job with confidence. In constant pain, also starting to injure other areas of my upper body trying to compensate for my shoulder. I will not have him perform surgery also every person I have talked to in the medical field has told me not to have him touch my shoulder. not at all satisfied with how he handled my injury.

Great

I had Dr Alford for a broken wrist. Surgery went well. I have had no problems. He helped with my knee until replacement became the last option. Now I am seeking a knee replacement surgeron. I will see Dr Alford as my regular orthopaedic for any future issues.
