What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Alper, MD

Dr Alper is a competent and caring doctor that takes very good care of my cronic rheumatoid arthritis. I have been going to rheumatologists in the Naples area for over 15 years and Dr. Albert is the best that I have found. His staff is courteous and competent and seeing Dr Alper is usually the high point of that day.

When I started seeing Dr. Alper, I felt that he was engaged in my care, and definitely appreciated all the time and energy he spent in my treatment. However, after a few visits, I was passed off to one of his PA's who really didn't seem to care, and in fact made several statements that frustrated me enough to cause me to leave the practice.

Loved Dr. Alper as a physician and feel that he went into great detail and was so helpful to me with my RA and another issue in my legs I was having. No other physician found this specific problem but he did. I am however, looking for a new RA physician. His office staff is the worse I have EVER had to deal with. They NEVER answer the phone, they NEVER return the calls that I left for them stating that I need to see Dr. Alper to get my RX re-filled. This is just unacceptable!

I have been seeing Dr. Alper for about 4 years for Sjogrens Syngdrome. I have been on Plaquenil. There is no scientific evidence that the medicine does anything, but I understand this is the medicine of "Choice". I now have developed osteoarthritis and rheumatoid artheritis. So far no success for pain. The reason for this review is this, they never answer the telephone. This past week 11/14 - 11/18 I have called 4 times and left messages to make a payment and that I am in extreme pain.
