What People Say About Dr. Thomas Alost Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Alost is very patient and compassionate with me. He does not walk in the examine room and run out, he waits until he has answered all my concerns. My injury is a work related injury and I've always appreciated his accuracy with my paperwork that goes to OWCP/DOL. His staff is very professional, friendly and accommodating. That is due to the doctor's expectation. Thank you for being so caring and patient with me over the years.

As far as this doctor's surgical and treatment skills are concerned I'd give 10 stars if this allowed it. HIS BUSINESS OFFICE on the other hand leaves A LOT to be desired. They over-collected my surgical co-pay by over $500 (which OF COURSE had to be paid up front) and are now telling me that by the time I see my refund it may be more than 30 days since I brought the discrepancy to their attention. THIS IS DEPLORABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL. They demand $ upfront and reimburse when they feel like it

Dr Alost replaced both of my knees due to arthritis 3-months ago. It wasn't easy at first, but I am glad I had them done together. Dr Alost is advanced with his surgery and was very open in telling me what I would need to do before the surgery and why as well as what to expect after the surgery. I've been very happy with my results and with Dr Alost. He was recommended to me by my PCP, who was happy with the results of her shoulder surgery by Dr Alost and 2 others. I would recommend him to all.
