Dr. Albright is a bright person seems to care about his patients. I would recommend the following improvements: 1 Become a better listener. Ask "what is your chief complaint" at every visit. 2 Order labs before the visit, not after 3 Pair up with a dietitian and personal trainer for an "integrative" suite of service. Many chronic disease sufferers need a whole body approach. Telling a patient to "improve their diet" and "get some exercise" doesn't go far enough. 4 Train the front desk to smile!

I have seen Dr. Albright and his NP for almost a year. I find him to be very thorough.He orders just what labs need to be done and nothing extra. I have been very pleased that he does his own thyroid ultrasounds and biopsies as it is more convenient to see him directly rather than go to a radiology facility. He gets back to me on my lab results and questions using his patient portal and I always have my results by the next day after they are drawn. He is caring, good teacher.

After having been to this practice for over a year, I am no longer returning. I continue to be treated like someone who just got diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. My thyroid is rarely examined and clearly this doctor cannot monitor my thyroid. I have never had such drastic labs up/down in over 25 years of having adult onset type 2 diabetes and hypothyroidism. He treats patients with more meds, doesn't accept alternate more natural solutions that I proved worked. Always in a hurry, staff too!

My father has not seen Dr. Albright, so this review is not against him. This is regarding his schedulers. I have left 3 messages to schedule an appointment for my father who is post transplant. I have not received a call back. If you are not taking new patients, a courtesy call would be nice. I will find another Endocrinologist that would like to see my father. If Dr. Albright does not know that his schedulers do not call people back, then now you do.

Save your $$$ After my insurance paid $1600.00, my portion was $800.00 For what? I went to Dr. Albright to get a 2nd opinion on a small nodule on my thyroid. He saw me briefly, attempted to take a biopsy. He was unsuccessful and asked me to return a month later, so he could try again. After the bill came, I have repeatedly called and contacted the office to discuss the bill for the 2nd visit, which was his fault. After months, the horrible office staff is still ignoring me.

I had various questions and concerns when I came to my first appointment with Dr. Albright. He took the time to address my situation, and was very thorough. He made me feel at ease, took me seriously, and followed up appropriately. He has excellent social skills and is comforting. I highly recommend Dr. Albright.
If you prefer to blindly follow a doctor's orders, never question or inquire about your treatment plan or voice an opinion on the decisions being made and don't mind your legitimate concerns being dismissed, this is the place (and the Doctor) for you. If, on the other hand, you are actively involved in your treatment plan, are reasonably educated as to the medical issues you are facing and feel that the doctor/patient relationship should be a partnership, not a dictatorship, go elsewhere.

Being a type 1 diabetic he was really bad on treatments, his staff was worse. Most of the time it would take over 2 weeks to have them call in a prescription for insulin, this was a constant battle to get insulin from him and his office, at times I would be with out insulin for weeks and my sugars would run up to 600+ each day. To get a new insulin pump it would take almost a act of God. My insulin pump was 18 months out of warranty before I could get a new one, no choice but to get a minimed

Dr. Albright is one of the best Docs for whom I've had the pleasure to be a patient. Besides being close in age, he is funny, sociable, kind, understanding, and a damn good doctor to boot. I look forward to my visits with him as we usually laugh throughout the appointment, and he always gives me much needed reassurance and positivity about my ailment. Dr. Albright is a fantastic Doctor with a lovely demeanor and I would not only recommend him, I would insist seeing him to friends and family!

I was his first Thyroid cancer patient at UAB in Birmingham, AL in 2001 ... it was a tougher cancer that first thought so it took a few years .. he was totally awesome with me! And I am still here! I really wish I lived closer to Denver .. as they have found an nodule in my thyroid bed and they are checking it out next week .. I would love to speak with him again :D
