Tuscaloosa, AL |
Been a patient for over 10 years. A year or 2 ago there was a problem with phones. Other than that never a problem. Very thorough and knowledgeable. Caring staff.
Slidell, LA |
Dr. Albright was very friendly and professional. His personality made me feel comfortable. He was very informative and personally contacted me after my colonoscopy, to give me the results. I consider his personal contact very personable and caring. The doctors, I've had in my lifetime, have had a staff person to call me, unless there was a problem. In my opinion, he is what all doctors should be, sincere, professional, caring, and informative.

I have been seeing Dr. Albright for at least 15 years. He always listens to my symptoms and talks me through what he wants to do to solve the problem. I have never had a bad experience in his office. I would recommend him to everyone.

I had 2 procedures in recent years by Dr. Albright: a colonoscopy and an EGD. He's personable & his staff is friendly. BUT follow-up by this office in providing lab results is HORRIBLE. I've had to be very persistent and call frequently to get procedure results.. After last year's EGD, I called several times for results, then finally contacted the lab myself and my primary care Dr. who prescribed meds. Dr. Albright called 2-3 weeks after the procedure with results and plan of care.
2 mos wait for appt. Asked to see a partner, appt in 1 week. Got to office, told I could only see Dr. A as I was estab. patient. an appt w/ Dr A was available later that day!?!. Can't reach office ..due to phone problems. Several msgs left by phone and thru portal which is a joke..Dr has to release results first which he takes his time doing. Picked up my own CT and U/S results which were abnormal-no call back from him for 11 days!! Switching Drs!...too busy to treat sick person. Horrible!!!
Had a problem getting through to his office..said they would call back, never did..tried twice. Ended up at ER!! Then couldn't get a appointment for 1 month!!! Utterly ridiculous! I have been with him for years!! Switching doctors!!!
