Specialties

Dr. Sharon A Alger-Mayer has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

another dr who doesnt listen

I went to her for help with my binge eating disorder, she prescribed a ssri, after considering the risks vs benefits I decided I need something that's going to start working immediately so I call her to ask for the only medication the fda has thus far approved for treatment of binge eating disorder and she offers me prozac, saying it's the only other medication approved for bulimia. I am 100% sure I expressed to her I do not purge after binges, as much as I would like to be able to, I cannot, so where is this "bulimia" b.s. coming from? Total waste of time. I went to her desperate for help and nothing came of it. Thanks Dr Alger for listening so well.

I'm very thankful for Dr Alger. She is one of the few Doctors in the Albany / Capital district who specialize in eating disorders, and is excellent at what she does. She was the first Dr I took my daughter to when she was very sick, and we also got in the same day I called. Two hours after I made the call to her office ! I'm very thankful that we got in that day. She spent a great deal of time with my daughter. All of her recommendations as far as treatment facilities, Doctors, and therapists are top notch. She always calls back when I have a question, and I never feel rushed. I have talked to her office staff as well, and they have all been understanding and helpful. Considering that my emotions at times have been a combination of nervous, worried, and desperate for help it's nice to know that my daughter is in the best hands. Dr Alger helped save my daughter's life ! Many thanks to Dr Alger, The Renfrew Center P.A. Dr Klim and the rest of her team.

Two Stars

It has been years since I've seen Dr. Alger, but I did not find her particularly caring. In fact, her lack of caring made a bigger impression. She never called either with test results that showed a problem. I found out 4 months later in a follow-up appt. Never went back after that.
