Dr. Alan took care my husbands arm pain in 2008 and he was able to make strong decisions while other specialist was ready to do the surgery . It’s been 10 years it’s fine and my husband even built basement himself. As some of the doctor suggested don’t do hard work with this arm , after couple months his pain was gone .we are so thankful for Dr. Alan, while others were scathing us

Dr. Schreiber was very knowledgeable and friendly. At times it seemed like he over talked me a bit but I came to understand it was more of him understanding my symptoms and summarizing what was going on with my back/hip/leg. Theoffice staff was very friendly and accommodating. My husband was able to get a wheelchair since I experienced severe pain while walking. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I plan to continue undergoing treatment with Dr. Schreiber.

The staff that assisted in the back office was warm and gracious. The Doctor was really gracious, respectful and very concerned. He was kind, patient and understood clearly what was necessary. The X-ray Tech was warm and caring and assistedme through the process without any problems. However, the Receptionist ( all 3) needs to show a little personality. They are not very warm or welcoming at all. I see that most of their work is certainly computer related so I understand, but a little smile may help sometimes. The young lady that assisted over the phone was direct but very helpful.

Dr Schreiber seemed very competent and knowledgeable. His medical technician was also very efficient and friendly. Dr S speaks very softly and quickly, however, so if you have trouble hearing, you will have to ask him to repeat frequently.

Check in admin paperwork took longer than I figured for because they have a cool tablet system. So new patients should plan for an extra 20 minutes for that. They did x-rays down the hall and were on the ball withgetting the Dr ready for his consult, for my back pain. Overall I'm glad I found this orthopedic group.

The office staff was very professional, including the orthopedic and xray techs. They took me back very quickly and did xrays right away. Dr. Schreiber was nice, knowledgeable, and decisive with recommending a plan of action and follow up.He also took his time to explain my imaging in detail and his reasons for his diagnosis.

Second times a charm! My entire experience was great this time, how it should be. ZocDoc made it easy to schedule my appointment, and reminded me as it got closer. The check in process was so smooth and all automated includingswiping my card for the copayment. The staff took my x-rays swiftly and explained everything perfectly. Dr. Schreiber and his PA were wonderfully pleasant and answered all my questioned and reviewed my diagnosis. Great!

I would generally rate him as "average." The good news is that the issue I saw him about is much better. I am very grateful for the outcome. This worked out fine for this procedure though I'm not sure whether I would request him in the future.

Dr. Schreiber previously operated on my back, and , quite simply, he fixed it. I have had no further problems. I went to see him about a knee this time. It will be some time before I know exactly how myknee will be repaired as we have to try several things, but I have absolute faith that Dr. Schreiber will find a way to fix what is wrong. He is an outstanding doctor and a highly skilled surgeon.

Dr. Schreiber is very knowledgeable and spends time with the patient. However, the front desk staff said we were not on the schedule even though I booked online and was called twice by the office prior to the appt- the sameday! When I signed in upon arrival, I waited 15min to be acknowledged- they had moved the 'sticker strip' to the patient list and hadnt even realized it so skipped over us. So this caused us to be behind other patients. Once in the room, was notified that we were not given the proper paperwork by the front desk so the back nurse had to hurry and complete that prior to moving on. We waited 1 hr and 15 minutes in the examining room before seeing Dr.- 1 hr was after completing all paperwork/ questions with back nurse. After the hour without seeing ANYONE, I asked how many more patients are ahead of us. We were told we were next. Within 1 minute the back nurse came into the room, picked up the patient chart and put it outside the room for the doctor. He had no idea we were in the room since she forgot the chart and never checked on us again. Very poor. No apologies or owning up to mistake.
