He show that he care initial. After endoscopy and prescription, he was more flippant and less friendly. Told me i needed to see a shrink when i told him i still have issues. There is a reason why he is availablewithin a days schedule. Another doctor resolve part of my issue. Maybe i am the exception since i am the only one with bad experience. His other review here is really good.

I was very happy indeed with this visit and the subsequent follow up actions. Dr Alpert has a very good technique of repeating back to you what he understands your symptoms are so that you can double check his interpretation. Ivery much liked this approach and felt very reassured by his professionalism.

I thought Dr. Alpert was very efficient without rushing me out of his office. He sat down to listen to why I came in to the office that day and discussed his game plan for trying to resolve those issues. Heseems genuinely concerned for my well being. My only issue is the wait time but I’m noticing that’s the case in every office I go to now. Nurses and front desk were pleasant. Office was clean.

Visiting Dr. Alpert was a great experience. His staff was really kind and efficient. Dr. Alpert was great! He took the time to sit down and listen to my concerns. He clearly explained his thoughts and diagnosis, and suggestions for nextsteps and things I could do on my own.

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.

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 tohave 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.

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 mostdoctors especially in NY went into medicine primarily for the money and not to help sick people.

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.

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. Theonly knock I have is that they don't take credit cards. Luckily I brought a check just in case.

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 rightin 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.

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. .
