In my opinion, this physician is among the worst practitioners in the profession. He completely botched both my knees by recommending and performing partial knee replacements. First, I would be remiss to not mention his enthusiasm when recommending the partial "solution". I have since had one revision entailing a full replacement whereby my new physician detailed both the misalignment and deterioration of the implant which was less than four years old.

Not good. They made me wait an hour when I had an appointment. I've never had that happen for a followup anywhere else. They didn't tell me he was running an hour behind until I explained I needed to get back to work, and was running out of time. Front desk looked overwhelmed and confused. When I went in the back, nobody was there, so I was confused as to why they were so behind. I had to walk out to get back to work. Never met the doctor. Whoever runs the business side is terrible.

I had severe back and leg pain caused by a ruptured disc in L5. Dr Albright was very thorough and performed outpatient procedure to eliminate my issue and pain.

I found Dr. Albright extremely rude and arrogant as mentioned in some of the previous comments. He had diagnosed me with a respiratory issue which he never even examined me for since he is an orthopedic Dr. not a Pulmonary Dr. I knew the minute I left I was never returning. When I got my records I was furious that it stated I had a respiratory disease. I have found a great doctor and I am not through pursing this issue. He wrote an apology letter which was just as cold not surprising!

Dr is fine, Raleigh Ortho in my opinion is a very poory managed practice. What good is it to have good Drs if you can't see them due to incompetent scheduling/appointment/phone process? Going elsewhere.

After suffering with pain for years and seeing a Chiropractor, PT and taking pills, I requested and MRI. Dr. Albright identified my herniated disc between C5-C6 and was able to focus in on my continuous arm weakness, pain in my hand/wrist and shoulder. An artificial disc replacement was recommended and I went for it! This was the best decision ever. I NEVER choose a provider by personality, but rather by the reputation they have for clinical expertise. I made the right choice! Thank you!
