Dr Alpert was awesome and really put me at ease. I am traumatized from the prep required before a previous colonoscopy and he told me that i dont have to do the same preparation this time. Much better!

Had a good first appointment with Dr Alpert, but on my follow up appointment he was unable to diagnose me and shrugged his shoulders, and made a sexist comment before giving up. He did not take my condition seriously whatsoever.

Staff not very pleasant. Blood test left a huge mark in my arm. Doctor is nice- though I am not sure that all the test he said I need to undergo are really necessary or are for insurance benefits. Not feeling confident.

I saw Dr. Alpert twice. I will never go back. He didn't seem to care about my issue and acted like I was making it up. Additionally, I waited over two hours on the morning of my procedure - unable to have food or drink. His receptionist is also part of the problem. She was suppose to call my prescription in and I had to call her 5 times to get her to call it in. He also only takes cash or checks. Very unconvienent. Stay away.

Dr. Alpert was the first doctor I visited using ZocDoc. He was extremely polite, took his time asking various questions, and made sure he got to the root of the problem. He explained everything thoroughly and made sure all of my questions were answered and that I was comfortable.

Everyone was very great and helpful. The nurse and Dr. Alpert were very thorough and pleasant. I finally found a doctor who is taking ownership of my problems and if there is a resolution I believe he will find it. The only knock I have is that they don't take credit cards. Luckily I brought a check just in case.

Don't be fooled by all the vastly positive reviews for this doctor. I went to him for a serious debilitating problem i was having, and when he figured he couldn't help me he decided to slander me! He, unfortunately like most doctors especially in NY went into medicine primarily for the money and not to help sick people.

Thumbs up all around. Dr. A was courteous, attentive and thorough. He asked a lot of questions and provided me with alternatives and did NOT just try to rush me out and write a prescription like so many doctors in this city often do. Highly recommended.

Overall pretty good. He is understanding, patient and has excellent bed side manner. His examination was thorough and he was very careful not to inflict additional pain on an already battered area. I'm going back in two weeks and hope it will be just as good.

After experiencing discomfort and subsequently becoming anxious, I made an appt with Dr. Alpert. He was kind, compassionate and reassuring. He suggested an endoscopy to take a look what's going on and what's not going on. He also fit me right in because he saw how anxious I've become. He is wonderful and a gem among so many other doctors that have terrible bedside manner. Fantastic experience. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Alpert has perhaps the best bedside manner I've ever seen in a doctor. He was very pleasant, explained everything I needed to know, and listened to and addressed all of my concerns. He treated me like a person, not just a medical case. I had a long wait for my second appointment (about an hour), but Dr. Alpert apologized without me even mentioning it and explained that the wait is almost never that bad, but things got backed up. For my first visit, the wait time was very short. Staff is friendly.

First doctor to give me hope he can figure out what is wrong with me. Unlike other doctors, he scheduled me for a follow-up to know if my symptoms change worsen or improve. I really feel like he cares and will make the effort to help me heal so I can realize a higher quality of life.

The doctor himself seemed fine and nice, but his PA/Assistant was not someone I would recommend. Her bedside manner was poor, to say the least. An example: when telling her that I had a general doctor I go to, and that if any procedure was to occur I would go to him, she gave the impression that was wrong to do because of business/money. I was very turned off by her. It is unfortunate as again, the doctor himself seemed fine and the receptionists were sweet, but this was not an experience I would choose to go through again.

all his patients know he is a great doctor (and its easy to see jsut by looking at his affiliations and training) but Dr. Alpert is also very compassionate and non judgmental making it very easy to talk to him about anything without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. .

As soon as I filled out the initial forms I was taken to the room. Dr, Alpert came in 5 min after the initial interview with, I supposed, the nurse. Dr. Alpert was thorough, friendly, knowledgeable and clear. I scheduled the procedure for two days later. The procedure went smooth. No pain afterwards, no side effects so far (this review is from 3 days after). Would absolutely recommend Dr. Alpert based on my short experience as of today.

Doctor is nice but his staff is a nightmare--rude and disorganized. Nurse is particularly unhelpful and obstructionist. She was not only aggressive verbally, but handled me roughly during a delicate medical procedure. For my follow up visit, she forgot to enter my appointment time into the computer and then blamed me for the mixup. Hostile, gruff, unhelpful people at the front desk are a shame given that Alpert himself seems better than average. But a doctor is only as good as the other members of his practice. Would not recommend.
