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!
