Dr Alley is Fantastic!

Dr. Alley is the most caring Doctor that I have ever met! His program is tough at times but, well worth it in the long run! As a middle aged woman with many years of poor eating habits, I have received so much support and compassion from him and his entire staff! They truly make you feel like a member of the family! You are not "just a patient" but a valued member! As far as a surgeon, Dr. Alley was my first and ONLY choice due to his reputation with my other doctor's on my specialty health care team.
Care above the rest

This is a well run, well thought out program. This is a totally redo my life program. And you will work hard. The whole staff gives you support and I believe they really care. You will exercise and eat healthy. And Dr. Alley takes every precaution he can. If you want real success, this is it. If I could give Dr. Alley more than four stars I would. Anything worth achieving isn't easy, but they will give you support in every faucet of this transformation. Dr Alley and his staff seam to know just how hard weight loss can be. They become just like family and I feel they have as much at stake in my success as I do.
Review of Dr. Joshua Alley, Sayre, Pennsylvania
Self-verified patient of Dr. Joshua B Alley - Posted on July 5th, 2013
Top notch doctor. Thorough, compassionate, easily accessible. Dr. Alley bent over backwards for me. He listens, doesn't rush you out of the office though I know he had patients waiting and was willing to discuss my situation with my husband and myself. He explained things carefully, offered options and made himself available. He took on my case after another bariatric surgeon thoroughly botched my surgery. I highly recommend him!
