I have been a patient of Dr Alwine for over 30 years. My mother and aunt were patients until their death. He is kind, gentle, intelligent, patient and deserves a higher rating than he's getting here. I firmly believe the office staff since Penn Medicine took over is to blame. They are not friendly, prompt, or professionally qualified. My husband had shoulder surgery a few months ago and required referrals....easy task for most doctors offices. Not these folks. It took numerous calls and finally a surprise visit from him to get it right. I myself have been waiting for a simple scriptorium be called into the pharmacy for four days now! This is totally unacceptable and may be what causes me to change doctors. This is not good patient care, it's bad business! I feel sorry for Dr. Alwine because he is a wonderful doctor and deserves better staff. Wake up Penn Medicine!!!

Long-term patient

Issues with recording keeping and filing. My records seemed to be placed in wrong section of my electronic file. Every time I go in they're still in the wrong location but this doesn't affect my care. We discuss test results and move on. He's a caring, sincere doctor. He seems very earnest and humble. In fact, I think he cuts his own hair. ?? But once again this has no effect on care. It just humors me.

Best Family Doctor in Chester County

I have been a patient of Dr. Alwine's for 32 years. He sees all our adult children as well. He is super courteous, great bedside manner, and he truly cares. He will do everything within his power to find out what is wrong with you and send you to specialists when he has exhausted his means. He doesn't rush you and explains everything making sure you understand. Wait time can be a bit long because of his willingness to care for his patients. He knows about many rare disorders as well. Very professional and just an all around fantastic doctor.
