Dr. Alpert was tremendous in treating a torn lateral meniscus in my left knee. First, he helped me to understand the nature of my injury and my options for recovery. When we decided on surgery, Dr. Alpert communicated with me regularly regarding the procedure, and performed a flawless surgery. My knee had been in pain for a long time and has been pain free since I had the surgery done. From both a personal and professional perspective, I offer the strongest possible recommendation of Dr. Alpert.

Dr. Alpert was recommended by my general practione to care for my infected bursa. He had to open my knee to clear the infection. I am pleased with the way e and his staff took care of me.

I went to Dr. Alpert for extreme pain in my right knee. I don't believe he even looked closely at my xrays & I know he did not look at the medical chart I filled out. When the doctor came in the exam room he had a rep from ATI Physical Therapy with him. I didn't appreciate that. He said I have arthritis in my knee & I should have physical therapy & that he would prescribe some meds. When the doctor found out I have an HMO he rushed out of the exam room. He prescribed duplicate drugs, which are c

Dr. Alpert barely took the time to look at my sprained and quite painful ankle, and before I could ask him any questions he had already run out the door. He literally examined my ankle for under 30 seconds before giving me a diagnosis and leaving. I know that YOU don't care about my ankle, Dr. Alpert, but I do. And since I'm your customer that should matter to you.

I liked Dr Alpert from the first appointment. He is professional and caring with his patients. He did surgery on my shoulder and also fixed my torn miniscus in my knee. I feel great ! I would recommend him and the excellent staff !!
in Huntley, IL |
Dr. Alpert has helped me with left knee pain. He suggested the Orthovisc injections and they are working in my knee. It was a series of three injections. Dr. Alpert's office staff is friendly and helpful. They work hard to verify insurance and to accommodate my work schedule for appointments
Algonquin, IL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Alpert, he explains things to his patients so that they understand what the procedure entails, as well as your recovery time. He also is compassionate about the needs of his patients and takes the time to not only answer your questions, but ask you if you have any questions he can answer.
in Lake in the Hills, IL |
Had a shoulder injury from a severe fall and was unable to move left arm for weeks. When I finally saw Dr. Alpert, he didn't even want to do any imaging, just send me straight to PT. He then did an MRI and said I only needed PT. A year and a new Dr. later I am getting ready for more imaging and probably surgery that I should have had a year ago. Thanks for brushing me off. Really improved my life.
in Elgin, IL |
Dr. Alpert is very nice and professional. He gives several treatment options and I trusted his expertise. He really cares about helping his patients heal He is an excellent surgeon!
in Huntley, IL |
He did a great job in fixing my son's broken kneecap and an even better job in the follow ups to his recovery.
Awsome guy, fixed a 20 year old snowboarding injury! Now I feel great have way better mobility in my shoulder than ever before. Highly recommended!!!
in Elgin, IL |
This highly skilled surgeon has my vote for the go to guy if you face an orthipedic crises. My first encounter with him was for a severely fractured ankle which he rebuilt and I saw him today for a final appointment after he did extensive arthroscopic repair on my dominate arm shoulder. I do five miles a day and the ankle is fully functional and pain free. My frozen shoulder is now pain free and fully functional. I highly recommend Dr. Alpert, an outstanding gentleman and fabulous mechanic!
in South Elgin, IL |
I am in the operating room on a daily basis for work and have viewed many surgical procedures in the area performed by numerous surgeons. When it was time for me to get my own shoulder repaired, I went to Dr. Alpert. I was dealing with instability issues in my shoulder and it was progressively getting worse. Dr. Alpert was very understanding about my desire to get back to playing sports and lifting weights without pain. I'm very happy with the results from my surgical procedure.
Dr Alpert is a hands on surgeon who is accessible. He is very talented at what he does.
in Glenview, IL |
Dr. Alpert is amazing. His attention to detail and ability to walk you through the steps all the way through surgery are extremely professional. I felt better then ever after my surgery and recovery were complete. My surgery day experience was efficient and again handled in a very professional manner. I highly recommend Dr. Alpert. He is a true pro.
in Chicago, IL |
Great experience, Dr. Alpert reattached my bicep muscle and in just a few months I was able to get back to the gym. His office staff was very accommodating and there wasn't a lot of waiting around. It has been over a year since the surgery and there is absolutely no discomfort, arm feels as good as new.
