Patient Comments (28)

Dr. Alpern used to be a good doctor but now has become very arrogant and delegates almost everything to his assistants. If he spends talking to you 2 minutes, you're lucky. His assistants lack training. I told her assistant that I saw blurry and she still gave me the same RX for my eyeglasses...more
