I was afraid for my first visit based on all the negative reviews I had read. After actually meeting with Dr. Alperin more than once now I can't understand how anyone would have something negative to say! She was wonderful, extremely nice, smart, and explained my diagnose so well. She even hopped right up on the exam table with me to help me feel more comfortable while she examined me. Overall it was a wonderful experience!

My daughter was diagnosed when she was 18 months and is now five. Dr Alperin has been wonderful both with my daughter and us. She has been very responsive and attentive and has always listened to our concerns and questions. We never feel rushed! My daughter absolutely loves her. We would highly reccomend her for your child. The staff in every office we have seen her in has also been wonderful!!!!

Has very abrupt manner bordering on rude BUT she is very knowledgable and I'm very grateful for the excellent medical care she's given my teen with chronic pain.
in Palatine, IL |
Just as rude, condescending, and abrupt as other parents have reported. No wonder it was so easy to get in to see her. I did give her one star for not ordering a bunch of unnecessary tests after the exam. I almost laughed aloud in her office when she mentioned to call after a week of consistent knee swelling because she's so hard to get into. Number one....we would never go back to her even if our son did have more episodes. #2, there's a reason we got an appointment so quickly, she's no good.

Very condescending know it all. Doesn't listen to parents.
