About Me

Care Philosophy

I enjoy getting to know each patient as a special individual. I want to hear their story. The word, "cancer" can be frightening. But the pathway of care does not have to be. And God willing, this path will lead to cure. A key part of my approach is p...

I just finished up eight weeks of radiation treatment for a second bout of prostate cancer, I am so thankful that I chose to go to Dr. Aldens office for treatment. Dr. Alden takes the time to go over every detail of your treatment schedule and was not in any hurry to move you out of his office. He is a very caring Doctor that really gets to know his patients. I cannot say enough about Dr. Alden or his staff, they are all top notch. Anyone that has to go through this I would suggest no one other.

Dr. Alden is never in a rush. He gives you as much time that you may need to have all you questions answered. Dr. Alden, give you the impression that he really cares, probably because he probably does. Very knowledgeable, and willing to share it all with you. I was very pleased with Dr. Alden and especially the staff.

Dr. Alden and his staff are top notch! They exuded a patient centered approach from start to finish, which is something not always seen today. Personally, I have not previously met a doctor such as Dr. Alden, who exhibited a genuine and kind nature. You do not feel like just a patient when talking with him who has this extraordinary entity (i.e., cancer) within you; rather I felt able to openly discuss my emotions, concerns, and humanness. 2 powerful words: Thank you! -MP
