Dr. Alalni seem like a good doctor. I ended up going with a different orthopedic surgeon because of his office manager Janet. She was most unhelpful, unprofessional, and extremely confrontational asking me things such as "don't you go to the store" because I was inquiring for options not o have to go to the office only to make a payment and get unnecessary exposure to the coronavirus. She kept insisting and asked "aren't you a dentist?", and "you're going to get exposed to the virus when you come to the hospital for the surgery". Again, all very unprofessional on her part. Do not recommend this office.
