My experience with Dr Alberta was outstanding. He has impeccable credentials but in addition, has a wonderful bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. He was confident in evaluating my frozen shoulder and putting a plan in place. He was patience in answering all of my questions. Both skilled and caring, a rare find. Highly recommend.

After 2 prior, unsuccessful rotator cuff repairs of my shoulder, I was sent to Dr.Alberta. The only option left, for me, was to have a reverse total shoulder replacement. Dr.Alberta performed the procedure with no complications. The office is always friendly and helpful. Dr.Alberta and his staff are patient, knowledgeable, and always answered my questions and concerns.

I was referred to Dr.Alberta by a friend who had a total shoulder replacement. I couldn't be happier, as I also needed a total shoulder replacement, Looked like it was going to be a reverse but after opening up Dr. Alberta went with the regular replacement, I was pain free and off meds in 2 days, Back to work in 4 days, and feel great 4 weeks out. I highly recommend Dr. Alberta. His office staff is also great.

Dr. Frank Alberta is great! He is so knowledgable. After gathering information through talking & test results, he provides the best solution with expert skill. I trust him completely, and have recommended him to an athlete friend who liked and trusted him too. You will be pleased.

After receiving a referral to Dr. Alberta, I had an appointment at referring doctors office where he rents space. After waiting for 50 minutes in an empty waiting room, he nor his staff approached me about the delay. They simply said he was in. I left and sent him a bill for my wasted time.

Doctor is well versed and experience in his field. Hardly got a chance to ever have a conversation longer than 3-4 minutes however.

Dr. Alberta did not see my child before and after surgery in the hospital. The discharge instruction said he would be calling that night and never did. All questions after surgery had to be answered by his nurse practitioner. All follow up visits after surgery were performed by nurse practitioner ONLY. Doctor only saw my child for the visit where he recommended surgery. I had high expectations prior to surgery, however was very disappointed with Dr. Alberta's patient contact and follow up.
