Dr Alkire is amazing. After months of not working and seeing dr after dr with no results. Dr Alkire was able to ease some of my dizziness issues. He also referred me to a neurologist who only sees dizzy patients after i had been to one that said this would be my new normal. Although I still have a ways to go I am definitely headed in the right direction. Forever grateful.

Fabulous medical professional with high standards, but also a ground-level approach and demeanor. GI/ENT issues can be tough to navigate across the many specialties and Dr. Alkire is a consummate professional and kind soul. So glad that my strange path through this murkiness has come into contact with him.

This is an upbeat, kind, excellent doctor. He is relaxed and makes you feel comfortable. He clearly recommends options, but he is respectful of patient’s choice. I know I’m in the care of a great doctor! I am so grateful to have found Dr. Alkire. Oh, and by the way, he cured my awful nasal discomfort.

Dr. Alkire is awesome! He is incredibly knowledgeable, listens to his patients questions and concerns, and never makes his appointments feel rushed. I suddenly lost my hearing a few months ago and Dr. Alkire was there every step of the way putting all of my anxieties at ease. I will gladly refer all of my family and friends to him!

Dr Alkire listened to me, which was no easy feat because I had laryngitis. He quickly diagnosed the problem, explained the treatment, and talked about flow-up to ensure that the treatment was successful. He’s a kind and decent person and I wholeheartedly recommend him.
