Dr. Alpert is always very thorough, kind, understanding, and caring. When Dr. Tucker isn't available, she is our go to!

We love Dr. Alpert! She's wonderful to talk with about issues. We have an 11 year old and a 3 month old, so are questions can really vary and she's always so helpful. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
We have recently switched to Dr. Alpert from another provider at the practice and I have appreciated her genuine interest in getting to know my sons. There was a symptom I was concerned about and she listened and ordered a follow-up test to understand more. I'm not confident the previous provider would have done the same.
Dr. Alpert was absolutely wonderful. she was extremely prompt, thorough and patient with our questions and concerns. We will definitely make appointments with her again for our children!
Doctor Alpert was great with our daughter. She is shy and always is scared about doctors and doctor Alpert could do the entire check up without any whining and complaining. She is the best with little kids.
Dr. Alpert was excellent at our most recent appointment. She took her time, was thorough, and listened to all of our questions and concerns. She is compassionate and very smart.

the staff are always phenomenal. we love this office. dr. alpert is so gentle and good with our toddler.
we love Pcp Allegheny
great doctor, so happy to have our first visit with her!
I pay a monthly premium of $1200 a month. I wanted my child to have a strep test because I had strep throat and the doctor said no because he didn't have all of the listed symptoms. Very disgusted.
When our PCP is not available, Dr. Alpert is our go-to. She is so kind to the kids and answers all of our questions with confidence and in a way that does not diminish our concerns or thoughts.
She's so professional and comforting to the kids. They love her.
Excellent bedside manner, great provider

this was my first time seeing dr Alpern. my son and I LOVED her! As most 22 month old children, he is usually reluctant to let a doctor touch him. Dr. A's tender sweet personality made him do so well! I was relieved by her ability to soothe my child through kindness and medical care. We will certainly try an appointment with her again.
Dr Alpert was patient and empathetic.

This was outbid first time seeing Dr.Alpert and my daughter and I both really liked her. she made her feel at ease and addressed our concerns.
very thorough , quick concise
I was supposed to receive lab results for my child strep test and never got a phone call regarding the results. the results should have been completed on a Saturday and I was assured that I would receive a phone call with the results positive or negative. no one called to share the results. when I call the after-hours service, they were unable to get me the results or have a doctor call with the results. they told me I would have to wait until after the holiday which is completely unacceptable.
I had not met Dr. Helprin before this appointment for a bad sore throat. She was able to provide good medical advice and listened carefully to my daughter. She was really friendly and my daughter and I both would like to see her in the future. What a great addition.
Dr. Alpert is amazing!!
