Dr Alost is the best. He listens attentively and speaks both English and Spanish. He did a complete exam and Xrays on my mother. I strongly recommend him to anyone needing an Orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Alost is very knowledgeable but needs better communication skills with his staff. He needs to not snap at them in front of patients. He also needs to spend a few more minutes with the patients instead of just rushing you out.

No complaint from Dr. Alost, it's just that I have to wait for more than an hour, that should not be had to happen. It's way to much time every time I see this Doctor.

I was 10 minutes late due to traffic congestion-it's a very busy practice. Everyone was courteous. He was straight to the point and honest. He couldn't do anything about my situation but it never hurts to ask and I would recommend him.

I went to Dr. Alost for a second opinion re: my last knee replacement. I have not been able to bend it even with physical therapy. He was very kind in his explanation and assured me that my actual knee replacementwas fine, but I needed a manipulation to bend my knee to get me back to full use. I am excited because my surgery will be in 10 days -- no long wait! Thank you!!!

Dr Alost is great it's just the waiting that is hard to understand. You have a 12:45 appointment but aren't seen until after 2pm. Just very frustrating when you work and lose so much time.
