Dr. Alport is a terrific doctor. She really takes the time to listen and takes extra measure to ensure that the patient feels heard and cared for. She addressed my health concerns and any and all necessary tests. She even took the initiative to up with me the following week to see how I was feeling. Highly recommend.

I don’t know who’s giving her 5 stars because she is the worst! On the initial visit I had to wait 2 hours to be seen and the staff didn’t know why she wasn’t there until they decided to page her. Then when she comes in she asks you questions without letting you andwer them properly. She prescribes a ton of test for me to do including an MRI with contrast. The doctor was to submit paperwork as to why and all she wrote was dizziness and the insurance approval was denied. See someone else!!!

I met Dr. Alport after having my first grand mal seizure. She didn't jump to conclusions or rush to put me on medication. She did a battery of tests and then put me on meds. She thoroughly explained everything to me. We've had a trial and error period. She is very easy to talk to and is an excellent listener. When I had another seizure she came in to see me. I am happy that our paths have crossed.

From the moment that Dr. Alport walked into the room, I felt known. Although this was my first meeting with her, I felt like she has known me for a long time. She was very nice and caring. I was very impressed with her speech . She was extremely articulate and well-versed. I appreciated how professional she was and how helpful she was with my diagnosis. I really enjoyed my visit and am so thankful that I met with her today.

I was first admitted to NYM hospital Sep 2015 w/ sinus thrombosis where I first met Dr. Alport. What I love most about Dr.A is that she didn't take my diagnosis at face value. She ran the necessary tests to rule out MS, and ultimately found I did have MS. She explained the medications and referred me to shared solutions which is a very compassionate company. I really thank Dr. A for going the extra mile to find out what was really going on and making me feel comfortable w/ the next steps!

My insurance company wouldn’t cover my previous neurologist, therefore I asked who I could use and they sent me to see Dr. Alport. I had previously been diagnosed with Parkinson’s because I was experiencing tremors in my hands. However, when I met with Dr. Alport, she told me that I did not have Parkinson’s, rather it was essential tremors. I think she is wonderful, great, and kind doctor and I feel at home here. Overall, I am a very lucky lady. Thank you!
