If you need a knee replacement...RUN to another doctor. Long waits for office visits. Talks a smooth game. My new knee is has started to hurt after a year. Worst thing I've ever done.

Dr. Albright performed Knee replacement surgery on both my wife and I. Both surgeries went as planned and we both are doing all we would like to do physically with no pain or restrictions. This is a very busy practice, which is good, so you may experience some scheduling and appointment delays, but at the end of the day the outcome is great.

Okay. I am back. Another visit last week to get information about MRI. I had to wait from 3/9 (when I had it) until 3/21 for appt. I thought things must not be that bad if I could wait (according to them) that long. I had injured knee 1/31 and continued to be in pain. Well... I have a fractured knee and torn medial meniscus. Guess what? There's nothing that can be done. Really?? I was told to make an appt for 5 wks but that I probably won't need to come back. My knee is killing me still. DONE!

I do not understand the bad reviews people have left for Dr. Albright. He is a very good doctor and surgeon. My mom had both her hip replacements done by him and the outcome both times were very remarkable. I could not imagine a better orthopedic doctor. I was with her every appointment and he has very good personality and is very intelligent, I was very pleased with him and his office staff. The wait time is reasonable. Obviously some people just like to complain,. Thanks for all you have done

Rude, arrogant and sloppy in his review of my symptoms. He was so dismissive of my pain and concerns, that there is no way he could diagnose a sprained thumb, much less a serious spinal issue. If you want good care, find another doctor.

If your a workers comp claim your pretty much screwed if you see Albright, sold out to insurance company years ago. Doesn't care how he affects your quality of life, doesn't care what emotional duress he causes. It amazes me that such a reputable business would employ such a hack. No one is concerned about the vast differences in the way he treats WC patients and private patients.

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!
