It would have been beneficial to be called with the sleep study results, instead of waiting for the follow up. Especially in this case, a student doctor came in to tell us the results and there was nothing more needed. We then had to wait for Dr. Alper to come in. A phone call with the results could have saved me money and everyone time.
Dr. Alper took time to explain to me, but it is a bit hard to understand the concepts. He wrote down a term for me. I like that he took a lot of time looking into his ear and explained the options regarding surgery. He had to stop to read his phone/email during the appointment as I was speaking. Fine if an emergency, but that should be relayed, otherwise email and phones should not be checked during someone else's appointment
I felt the time spent with the Doctor was very brief.
always friendly environment, Greg. rises, PA, and physician. they never disappoint.
Check in and Wait time was fair and we saw a doctor quickly.
didn't wait long to see dr alper. him and his assistant were very friendly, understanding and explained everything thoroughly for my toddlers ear tube procedure coming up.
Doctor Alper always provides the best care possible.
Spent time explaining everything and answering all of my questions. The PA also did an excellent job!
we love dr a
professional polite and understanding.
most disappointing was he did not listen to what i had to say only. and was in ther for 5 minutes if that.
Dr.Alper is a wonderful person, so glad He has taken care of me
Dr. Alper has great bedside manner and is very easy to speak too and felt comfortable answering all of my questions.
he did not know the patient , my son, and there is no reason for that. very disappointing
We always love seeing Dr. Alper, he really takes the time to interact with us and with our children.
We have seen several ENTs at Children's Hospital, and Dr. Alper, by far, has been the best one. He is gentle, patient, and kind with my 6 year old, and he spends a lot of time ensuring that we, as parents, understand all of her medical needs.
Dr. Alper was very kind and gentle with my daughter. He really shows respect to his patients. He was also very thorough in explaining next steps and answering all my questions. I am thankful my daughter is in his care.
We love Dr. Alper, and usually he spends plenty of time with us, but this past visit felt rushed and unheard.
very professional and answered all of my questions
always impressed with Children's
I loved that Dr. Alper included me in every decision of care choices that were planned out. He was great with my child and I enjoyed him as well.
I liked how Dr. Alper talked directly to my daughter as well as myself. Growing up I had medical issues and I always appreciated when the doctor treated me like I was important as well and I could tell that's how my daughter was.
My daughter has suffered from reflux for her entire life. Most providers get caught up on the reflux and not the extreme way it effects my daughter. Dr. Alper listened to our concerns and was very patient with my daughter who is only 5.
Dr. Alpher listened and spent adequate time with us. he was helpful and kind.
Doctor and PA were very nice, helpful, and answered all questions we had at the time.
Doctor didn't seem to care what I had to say, my daughter was diagnosed with acid reflux but she never complains of heartburn or food coming back.
We had a god experience with all staff, however, the time we waited to see the doctor was over an hour.
staff and physician polite and courteous. very knowledgeable and informative. have already recommended his to other friends.
Dr Alper is always wonderful with our kids and at explaining in detail our options for treatment. we are lucky to see him!!
We had been trying to schedule a surgery for my daughter for 11 months, each time we had to reschedule because she was sick. The office was very understanding and sympathetic. And Dr. Alper was very good, he is very soft spoken and speaks so nicely to his patients. He explained things throughout before the surgery and what to expect after the surgery. If any of my other children need anything that an ENT would be needed for we will definitely be returning to Dr. Alper.
The wait time in the exam room was extremely long.
very thorough and professional
hes a great doctor
The Dr and all of the students with him were great.
We waited for well over an hour to be taken back to a room and then proceeded to wait another 15+ minutes in the room. All of the nursing staff that we talked to were very kind and compassionate and being the 2nd time we have met Dr. Alper he was very kind and attentive to my daughter.
First time seeing this provider, very nice, professional and courteous. I was very happy with the outcome of this visit
Appointment was at 915. I arrived around 910. not too long in the waiting room, but the doctor finally came into the exam room at 1022 and left at 1023. that's ridiculous.
Dr. Alper has taken wonderful care of my children and their ear, nose, and throat issues over the last 7 years. we love Dr. Alper. He's truly the best.
Our daughter loves Dr.Alper
It's always a good, fast, easy visit with Dr. Alper. He is always kind, honest, and able to answer any questions or concerns we have. My son gets very nervous going to doctor's offices, and Dr. Alper does what he can to help him stay at ease- talks to him, makes jokes, has a good attitude. The clinical staff that supports him are very friendly, helpful, wonderful people. Mary, the RN, sat with me and explained everything we would need to know following a tonsil and adenoid removal and answered all questions I had and was able to put my mind at ease to prepare for the removal. I can't imagine my son being in better hands.
The doctor didn't address her hearing loss or ways to improve it.
We wait so long to see this particular doctor and he spends less than 5 minutes with us. If I can transfer her care to someone local I will do that. I drive an hour for these appointments, usually have to take off work, she missies school, all for nothing. Very disappointing as I think he's an excellent surgeon. He makes me feel stupid when I ask questions, so I just ask her pediatrician. She currently sees only 1 other specialist at Children's and when he retires we will be done going there.
very good experience.. love dr.alpret
Had a great experience with the care provider
we absolutely love Doctor, and are so greatful for his dedication to repairing my child's ear and hearing!
excessive wait time. Appt scheduled fot 11am. not taken into a room until 11:30. Seen PA at 12:05pm. Dr. Alper at 12:30.
Treatment was so/so, the doctor was very knowledgeable, but distracted by phone calls and seemed to be rushing through my appointment.
great attention to the kiddos! not a long wait.
Everyone was very helpful very nice.and everything moved along smoothly.
