What People Say About Dr. Alan Bier, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Bier cared for a loved one for many years. My family member never really needed anything besides medication management and to monitor her heart status. After many years, my loved one had more serious issues and sought care from Dr. Bier. He did not explain anything, he did not care and his plan of care would have been lethal. We have, since, sought care elsewhere and we are so thankful. He did not display any knowledge and gave no options. Thank goodness, we got a second opinion.

Skilled physician with a bad bedside manner and no listening skills. He acts as if he is on an elevated level and patients and family are at a lower level. He states: I don’t have time for you, he actually said that! No doctor should ever say that. 0 stars for a caring or compassion.
