Dr. Alani himself is a good Dr., however his Office Staff is horrible. This review is based solely on his staff. His staff seem to think their Dr's although they don't hold a (Dr.) degree. I've never dealt with a group that interjects in patients business as if they were the Dr. himself. I hope that someone (office manager),would interject asap and correct this abuse of authority before it causes severe trouble!

John R. – Feb 14, 2021
Dr. Alani was the only orthopedist that didn't have over a month long waitlist, but turns out it's because he doesn't spend longer than 10 minutes per visit. Dr. Alani is eager to schedule elective surgeries (performing up to 10 from 7AM-12PM in a single day). Dr. Alani does not listen to the concerns of his patients and does not even check his charts before/during appointments. I had 3 procedures scheduled successively with Dr. Alani- during the last, a cortisone shot, Dr. Alani asked me in the pre-op room where he should put the shot (as if I should know better than him, when he was the one who recommended the shot and I am not a doctor). Dr. Alani checked my progress on shoulder surgery 2 months down the road by asking me to raise my arm, which I was able to do in the appointment I had 2 weeks after the surgery. That was the extent of the check in. All in all I think he's greedy and money hungry with no dedication to the healing profession. Also the appointment staff is incompetent.

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.
