I have been a patient of Dr. Alfred for over 8 years He is easy to understand and talk with. He gives me all the time we need and I never feel rushed. I have total trust in him. His office staff have always been kind and caring. I was kept waiting at one appointment as he was still at the hospital with a critical patient. Otherwise he is always on time. Pam, his nurse, is very competent and pleasant to work with.

I have been Dr. Alfred's patient since 2007. He is very helpful with any questions I have and shows me the xrays that I get periodically so I know what he is explaining to me. His manner is caring and informative and I wish he could be my Doctor for other health problems. Would recommend him t anyone.

Long unessecary waits. Rude staff. Office girl scolded and got accusing when she called to switch my appointment from Pam (nurse practitioner) to Alfred. When I hesitated and mentioned the long waits to see Alfred for routine appointments, she became offensive in tone and manner. She encouraged me to get a different doctor. I liked Pam, she was prompt and very smart. They later sent a letter releasing me as a patient. I do not recommend this clinic. They will waste your time.

Dr. Alfred cared for my wife in 2010 when she had a collapsed lung, and her cancer returned after 27 years to force the collapse. He treated her again in November and December 2015. Although I lost her January 1, 2016, I was very pleased with the examination and treatment that Dr. Alfred and the rest5 of her team provided. He is a good doctor, has excellent patient relationships, and I would recommend him in a heart beat!
