Dr. Alpert treated my son for a broken collarbone. He and his staff monitored my son's recovery very carefully before recommending a surgery to correct the brake. Dr. Alpert always spent plenty of time answering our questions and making sure we were comfortable with the decisions to be made. Both Dr. Alpert and his staff were fantastic and I would highly recommend him. Three months after my son's injury, he was back playing basketball and is pain free!
Dr. Alpert is very competent, knowledgeable, and skilled. I have always been pleased with the outcome of his care. He is very good in his assessments and in the treatment he provides. He also explains test results, required treatments, and prognosis of the problems. And on top of that he is also considerate, caring, and concerned for his patients.
In 4 years of being a 3 sport high school athlete and 2 years of college baseball I have seen Dr. Alpert several times for everything from mild sprains to torn major ligaments. Everytime I have gone to see him he has done a thorough evaluation of the injury, given careful and concise information about what the situation was and helped me weigh all the options for solving the issue. I was always in good hands with him and I wouldn't be able to live the active lifestyle I enjoy if it wasn't for Dr. Alpert.
