everything was good! no problems here.
The doctor had diagnosed our son before even coming in the exam room. I was still filling out the paperwork that contained his current health information so he did not even have the current medical complaint info. He based his diagnosis on what records existed in UPMC's system rather than listen to the history of our son's ongoing sinus problems that had been treated outside that system (by primary care). He told us what was causing the problem before even looking in our son's ears and nose and handed me papers on how to control acid reflux. When we tried to tell him that the issue he blamed was under control, he dismissed us. He also disregarded that our son is 16 years old and talked only to me as if our son was a child. He spent all of about 5 minutes in the exam room.
We waited almost 2 hours for a very short follow up appointment
This was our first visit and Dr Al and the entire staff was amazing
we love dr Alper
The doctor and staff were very helpful. They had asked about some health information at the start of the visit and I had given them corrections regarding current allergies and a diagnosis, and they had not updated that information on the paperwork that I was sent home with. I don't think it's relevant to what I'll need to do to care for my child, but it could be confusing since it's inaccurate.
We were left in a room for almost an hour, 40 minutes past our appointment time
visit ALWAYS goes well
Dr. Alper was so great to work with. My daughter is often scared of doctors but he was so nice and gentle that my daughter wasn't worried.
We love Dr. C. Alper!
Dr. Alper is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. My son was on the floor playing with a puzzle when he came in. My son handed him a puzzle piece and they proceeded to work on a couple of pieces together. This made my son completely relaxed while he did the exam and my son is normally anxious at the doctors office.
Loved our Doctor, he is great
The staff at this facility handled my special needs daughter with professionalism and dedication.
We love doc Alper and is so kind and gentle
The Dr was very informative and really put our minds at ease. Our son has some very complex medical issues that this did not have to be one of them. The Dr and CRNP were both very thorough and kind. We could not ask for more
The entire practice has always been and continues to be accommodating, receptive, and welcoming.
Every one who works in the clinic in Oakland was so wonderful. My daughter tested with them all day and they attended to her every need and also were very thoughtful of mine. Thumbs up for children's' hospital!!
Couldn't ask for anything better!
Dr. Alpner provides excellent care to my child.
He spent three hours making sure that I did not leave his office in pain. He is a very dedicated, wonderful Doctor.
Dr. Alper is wonderful with kids. He was thorough and ordered tests to validate the situation. Glad we have him.
The office was great. My son is terrified of doctors ever since his ER visit for stitches. Dr.Alper had a way with my 2yr old. Talked to HIM and made him feel comfortable.
I like that there have been two opinions on my child's health each visit. It took getting use to knowing that I had to give any information that I wanted the doctor to know to the first "physician" that came in as the actual doctor kept his visit very brief and didn't ask much beyond the initial information given to the first person.
was always good with my daughter.
In the future I will see dr. Alper.
