What People Say About Dr. David Alderman, MD
Reply
Dr Alderman took exceptional care of me, before dialysis, during dialysis and after transplant. He does talk fast, but I never felt like he didn't listen to me. He, for certain, went the extra mile to help me. Very smart guy. A great advocate for his patients.
