Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

One of the best Physicians in Kerrville! Our relationship started slow, but that was my fault, not Dr.Alders. His predecessor, who became ill, was the physician I initially chose to be my PCP. He was brilliant! I did not handle the change of physicians as a professional should, and it reflected in the way I treated Dr. Alder. That was my mistake, and I regret it, and I told Dr. Alder so. He deserved better! He turned out to be a Godsend for this patient and Kerrville.  He went above and beyond to help me, and although we did not always see eye to eye, he always told it like it was, and he was usually right. Thank you, Sir, for being so compassionate to this older patient. Rob PS: His nurse Martha is a natural-born nurse and nurturer. She was born to help others, and it shows.

Has been my entire families Doc for the past year. I am a Permanently Disabled Vet with a host of serious medical conditions. He manages to hit every item each time he sees me. My wife and older kids trust him greatly. You will know for sure after seeing him that he holds no punches, is extremely honest, and incredibly knowledgable. With that, he is not afraid to tell you he will have to look that one up. We are blessed to have found Dr Alder, and will follow him to his next office
