Verified Patient Reviews
One of the best doctors I've seen! Highly caring and knowledgable!
Super easy and convenient first office visit.
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 next steps and things I could do on my own. I really appreciated the time spent, and will be making Dr. Alpert my primary care doctor!
This was my first visit with Dr. Alpert and he was excellent! Very friendly, caring and was clear about the process for which he will go about diagnosis and testing. I look forward to Dr. Alpert's continued care - I'm confident he will be able to help treat my condition.
Dr. Alpert was incredible. Had a bad experience earlier this week with a GI appt and he was the polar opposite. Wish all doctors were like him.
Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Atmosphere was very soothing in office. Doctor was very professional.
Extremely pleased with Dr. Alpert. Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner.
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.
Very nice team. Thorough exam. Helped expedite scheduling of follow-up procedures. Highly recommend.
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.
Thorough and thoughtful.
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.
He was kind and gentle and made me feel very confident in him as a doctor. Excellent bedside manner! He was very reassuring.
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.
Very quick and timely. I didn't have to wait long to see the nurse or the Dr. Pre exam questions were quick. Dr. Alpert is very knowledgeable and helpful. I would go back!
Friendly, approachable, knowledgeable. Would recommend.
Ths staff can't be a bit rash, but Dr. Alpert makes up for it. I can understand why he is so highly rated, he is VERY thorough and knowledgeable and has just the best bedside manner possible. Thank you for your help Dr. Alpert! :)
Great doctor. Very personable. Very comforting. I'd like to have this doctor for a long time. He's a great guy.
Excellent staff and doctor. Beautiful, welcoming facility.
I enjoyed my appointments with Dr. Alpert. He and his staff really helped me to feel at ease about my endoscopy. I was a nervous wreck.
Excellent, great doctor. I am extremely satisfied.
Very personable doctor, great bedside manners, I felt very comfortable with him, and would recommend him to others dealing with GI issues.
Excellent bedside manner. He inspired confidence. He was knowledgeable and attentive. I trusted his diagnosis and treatment plan. I highly recommend this doctor.
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.
The doctor made me comfortable to talk about my problem. I left knowing I was in good hands and that he would get to the root of the problem. He will be doing a test on me at the end of the month and I am confident in his ability.
Dr. Alpert was very friendly and thorough. He reviewed all the questions the nurse had previously asked me and was courteous.
He is the best! Patient and kind!
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.
Dr. Alpert was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and approachable with great communication skills. I was very happy with the service, and I would go there again and again and again if need be.
Dr.Alpert is extremely professional yet kind and sympathetic.He has the most up-to-date knowledge in his field.
He was excellent!
This was my initial visit and I was extremely pleased with short waiting time - I actually came on a wrong date, but Dr. Alpert saw me anyway. In addition, he was compassionate, knowledgeable and his nurse was very polite and experienced.
Dr. Alpert was kind, courteous and very informative to my issues. There is a reason why he was voted one of the best gastrologists in 2014!
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. .
Very personable and professional. Highly recommend Dr Alpert.
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.
Very nice doctor and staff. I never even got to sit in the waiting room, that's how fast I was seen by the doctor!
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Alpert's calm, thoughtful and collaborative manner. Highly recommended!
Down to earth, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and kind doctor. He took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns during the visit. Excellent MD and highly recommended.
Friendly office staff, comfortable wait to see the Dr., Nurse also very friendly and professional. The Dr. is easy-going, friendly, knowledgeable, and very reassuring. I felt understood, and he addressed my concerns, explained future treatment in an easy to understand manner.
He's a kind and compassionate man, and thorough and professional with his work. I was seen shortly after I arrived, the wait was minimal. I was highly satisfied with my visit.
Dr. Alpert was very nice and took his time explaining things to me and asking questions. I had an excellent experience.
He listened to me and is covering all basis which makes me feel confident I will get an accurate diagnosis snd relief from my discomfort
Dr. Alpert is amazing! Unlike most doctors, he really listens to everything you have to say. The entire doctor's visit never feels rushed (which is not something I can say for most doctors).
Dr. Alpert is great. No wait time, great staff, and a thoughtful plan for care. Would recommend highly.
As always, very thorough - I left satisfied.
Dr Alpert has the best bedside manner ever! He is compassionate and knowledgable .
Really nice, answers all questions, never any issues.
Terrible nurses, terrible wait, terrible experience.
Kind and reassuring. Suggested conservative approach rather than sending me for lots of tests. Highly recommended.
I have been seeing Dr. Alpert for years. He hasn't changed his wonderful approach to treating patients-he listens, is extremely pleasant and caring!
Dr. Alpert took the time to listen to me and very detailed explanation in his approach to his plan of care for me. I am very thankful for my PCP referral to Dr. Alpert.
Yes, I will definitely be seeing him again since I will be having my endoscopy done by him. He is such a knowledgeable, sweet and efficient doctor. He has many awards hanging on his walls, and it is very clear why. He is wonderful!
I love Dr. Alpert! I went in for a check-up and he listened to my concerns answered all my questions. He is very kind and professional and I truly recommend him. His office staff is great!
The doctor was great. He asked a lot of questions. He listened very carefully. Suggested a few options. There was a little confusion about the appointment date but other than that, perfect
Dr.Alpert has a lovely bedside manner. I found him to be thorough, knowledgeable, and compassionate.
Dr. Alpert was great - very nice and professional. After my first visit I immediately scheduled an endoscopy for later that week. When my results came back, Dr. Alpert made me feel better about my symptons/issue sand came up with a solution plan with me. His bedside manner is great
Very thorough and interactive. Showed great care and concern with my condition. Fully explained a course of action; next steps; etc. Left feeling very confident that I made the right choice in visiting him. I highly recommend everyone visit him. Do not think you will find a better internal medicine specialist in NYC
Outstanding Doctor. Listens carefully to your concerns.
He was fantastic! Listened to my concerns and suggested a course of action for the treatment.
Professional and caring with great bedside manner. I would recommend to anyone who needs a GI doctor.
Very professional, great bedside manner, no wait.
Very kind and very thorough. I would strongly recommend.
Love seeing Dr. Alpert. Super friendly and personable; knows what he's talking; always makes an effort to include me in the decision-making. Got in right away, and the staff is full of very sweet women.
Always a great experience! A very open, honest, knowledgeable doctor who doesn't rush you and takes time to explain if you have questions. Great doc!
Dr. Alpert made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions and explain the entire process thoroughly. He also had a very friendly bedside manner and wanted to make sure I left the office feeling fulling confident about the visit and next steps.
Dr. Alpert was patient with listening, and respectful. We discussed my symptoms and medical history, and booked a second appointment for endoscopy the same week. His demeanor is comforting.
Very knowledgeable and takes care to make patients feel comfortable. Liked his friendly but professional demeanor.
Fantastic doctor - thoughtful, caring, attentive and listens well. He's not too quick to make assumptions abs for any over-prescribe re meds etc. Highly highly recommended
Kind, patient and compassionate.
Almost no wait time and Dr. Alpert was very kind and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
He was very helpful. Though nothing was really resolved, we have the ball rolling to get down to the problem. He scheduled me endoscopy the week after. His initiative is clear to see
Very good doctor - saw him for ulcer treatment. One large downside is that he only accepts copayment in cash or check, no credit (very unusual). The wait can be very long sometimes. I've waited up to an hour when he was especially busy.
I've been seeing Dr. Alpert for years. He has an accessible, cheerful manner, always presenting his opinions and suggestions so that the patient has options. He is well-respected in the medical community and I trust him implicitly.
He was very professional and seemed very knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and listened to everything I had to say before making recommendations about the next course of action.
Dr. Alpert is extremely patient and kind. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I felt very at ease. I booked with him because I saw he won a patients' choice award and compassionate doctor award. I recommend him.
Dr. Alpert is very knowledgeable and comforting. He's nice and took his time with me. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Professional, knowledgeable and caring medical practitioner. "Listened" to all information I relayed. Answered all my questions; I never felt "rushed."
Great doctor and staff !! Highly recommend it.
Great initial visit!
He was very friendly and seemed to actually care about my health concerns, not just act like he cared. Most importantly, I felt very comfortable around him! Super easy to talk to!
This guy is awesome. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr Alpert is extremely professional and informative. Would definitely recommend!
Patient and kind doctor. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Alpert was very kind, knowledgeable, and thorough. I'd definitely recommend!
I've unfortunately had my share of negative experiences with doctors in NYC (and being a native New Yorker you'd think I'd be used to it by now), but Dr. Alpert was anything but. He was very attentive, answered all my questions without making me feel rushed and genuinely made me feel like my concerns weren't an over reaction. I highly recommend him.
Pleasant, empathetic, knowledgeable doctor. A good experience
He really takes time to answer questions, has an optimistic outlook and has a comforting bedside manner.
He was smart, friendly, considerate, and non-judgmental.
He was extremely professional and compassionate. He didn't make me feel rushed. I would highly recommend him.
Quick, to the point, and professional. He doesn't dance around medical matters.
Dr. Alpert was professional, courteous and pleasant. I definitely felt comfortable with him - which is highly important with this kind of doctor! Some of his staff were a bit rude, but the other members made up for it.
The nurse was rude. It seemed like everyone was having a bad day at the office.
Really sensitive and reassuring. Took time to answer all questions and explain thoroughly both what was going on and what the various options were.
Dr Alpert was very attentive and understanding. I had been having symptoms of IBS for weeks now and wasn't sure what else to do. He gave great advice and was extremely supportive. His office staff wasn't the best, but it's important for the doctor to be good.
Dr Alpert is amazing! After feeling sick for 2 years, he pin pointed exactly what was wrong. Excellent listener, smart, patient, persistent. Literally saved my life.
He was so personable and took the time to talk with me about my problems, trying to really understand. I appreciated the time he took with me and efforts for follow up.
Dr. Alpert is great, but just about every other factor of the practice is a little subpar. They don't take credit cards or debit cards, so everything is done by cash or check, which can be a hassle and doesn't exactly say "well established medical practice". The facilities are small and old but looked to be undergoing some renovation. I waited for 45 minutes, which was a bit annoying as there didn't seem to be any other patients there. The receptionist is apathetic and somewhat demanding, as she subtly made it known I was annoying her by asking questions about the insurance claim and getting a receipt for my services. So in conclusion, great doctor, subpar facilities, longer than expected wait times, and a somewhat rude receptionist. Also a great location, for me.
Professional, friendly manner, made me feel at ease. Thorough with his exam, I felt afe at all times. Excellent doctor.
Prompt, professional and courteous.
Excellent bedside manner. My visit were not "rushed", as it commonly happens with other doctors. Dr Alpert is extremely patient in listening and answering all questions.
He was extremely patient and thorough when speaking to me about my condition and what could be done to alleviate symptoms. I felt very comfortable and not rushed. He was excellent!
I think he is kind, patient and a great doctor.
From the receptionist to the nurse to the doc, all were very nice and attentive. Would highly recommend Dr. Alpert.
The staff were a little short with patients. However, Dr Alpert made up for this, because he was very attentive and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable in his diagnosis and confident that my health was being taken care of.
My only issue with this appointment was that according to dr. Alpert's staff, I was not scheduled for today. They mentioned they've been having issues with Zocdoc appointments, but were able to pencil me in for the time I allegedly scheduled
Excellent Doctor, Explains everything in detail and offers treatment options. Staff could use some work, Had my appointment time wrong until I showed them the email confirmation they did not believe me and happened to another patient while I was in the waiting room, they had his appointment wrong as well. Common Problem here, once your're with the Doc however ; its all smooth sailing.
I really think its worth it to have a visit with Dr. Alpert. He definitely lives his job!
The appointment was great, but I wasn't in their scheduling system. When I showed up I was told I didn't have an appointment. I received an appointment confirmation from ZocDoc, so I'm not sure what happened. Other than that, Dr. Alpert was excellent. Very thorough.
Met him years ago when I had open heart surgery and knew who to go to for diverticulosis which he diagnosted immediately. He's just fabulous and very reassuring. Big shout out to Daniel!
Patiently listened to all my concerns, very thorough with a wonderful bedside manner. Definitely recommend him.
He is the most competent of specialists i have seen in a long time. I am looking forward to my procedure and good news after it.
Dr. Alpert was truly a great pick from ZocDoc. I was nervous about engaging a gastroenterologist for all the reasons someone might be nervous. He put me at ease about what was happening to me and what his practice could do in addition to what I could do at home to feel better and treat my own symptoms. Even the day of the procedure (colonoscopy) he took me through the entire procedure step by step, i felt no pain and was very comfortable the whole time. I highly recommend this doctor
Dr. Alpert is a very professional, knowledgeable and friendly doctor. He addressed all my concerns, and gave me as much time as I needed. I was not rushes at all. Excellent visit.Highly recommended.
I thought that he was thoughtful, understanding and clear in his evalustion.
Have seen Dr. Alpert before. He is pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Alpert was thorough and helpful in making me feel at ease about some of my problems. His nurse, however, is so curt and seems like she's in such a hurry that talking to her at the beginning of my appointment stressed me out and made for an unpleasant experience.
Dr. Alpert is an amazing doctor very attentive to the patients concerns and needs, very detailed, informative, and thorough in his work. I feel safe in his hands.
Dr. Alpert and staff were great. My parents are patients of Dr. Alpert and always raved about him. I was very happy that I went to him for my medical care.
I've seen Dr. Alpert a number of times and he's always been incredibly thorough and thoughtful to determine a diagnosis and proper treatment. For anyone needing a GI doctor, I'd highly recommend seeing him.
Very friendly and informative
Dr. Alpert was very professional and caring and I felt very comfortable in his office.
I never feel rushed when seeing Dr Alpert.
