The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Alley.
“Dr. Alley's knowledge, sincere concern and general bedside manner was very reassuring and comforting. Thank you Doctor.”
– Thomas R.
“Dr Alley was informative and reassuring.”
– Jerry D.
“Both Dr. Alfred and Dr. Alley have provided fantastic professional treatment to deal with my problem knee. Proper diagnosis and candid discussions about prognosis were extremely helpful. Dr. Alfred recommended a new procedure to alleviate pain from bone adema. Dr. Alley had performed the procedure only a few times previously with mixed results. My surgery went without a hitch. I am now several months post op and the knee is feeling great. Fingers crossed the healing continues. Thank you!!!”
– Tim D.
“Dr. Alley is very straight forward, easy to talk with, and explains the problem and what to do to eliminate in a warm and professional manner. Always a pleasure to visit with Dr. Alley.”
– Mark F.
“My experience was very good. From his office to the opportune table all was good. Beyond good in fact, let me give you and idea of just how good i thought is was. I worked in a hospital for years in the OR. I did clean up. What i found in the past was that if a doctor was respected that respect was passed onto the patient. That being said, my pre op experience was very good. That made me feel very confortable and led me to the thinking that Dr. Alley must be a good doctor- after all i saw him all of 5 minutes in the office. He informed me that i needed to have my shoulder operated on and basically go make an appointment and see you there. Dr. Alley took the time pre-op to explain what was going to happen and what i could expect. It went as he said it would. He gave me directives, which i followed to the letter. My out come is as he said it would be at every milestone. I cannot see how anything could have made my experience any better unless you come up with a way for someone else to have the operation and i get the benefits. I do not think science is even working on that so, to get to the point here everything was good. The office visit, the pre-registration, pre-op, post -op, and follow up appointments with Dr. Alley all GOOD!”
– Jesse C.
“Seen Dr Alley for plantar fasciitis and for an elbow issue. He's the real deal. He wont give you false hope or give you a sales pitch. Your going to like Dr Alley for honesty and for his directness. I wouldn't hesitate to see him again for any orthopeadic issue.”
– Jeff W.
“He is always a good listener and is always thoughtful. Much appreciated! Gives good advice!”
– Susan S.
“Overall it was a very positive experience to have my knee surgery at the Bone & Joint Center. All of the staff (Dr. Alley, nurses, anesthesiologist) were very friendly and accommodating.”
– Kelly M.
“Dr. Alley was kind and understanding about the problem she was having and gave us recommendations for exercises and sports physical therapy.”
– Jamie C.
“Dr. Alley surgically repaired two rotator cuff tears over the past two years; one in each shoulder. I liked the fact that he spent time explaining each procedure. He didn't come across as being in a hurry. I highly recommend him to anyone.”
– Frank L
“Dr. Alley is a fantastic doctor. I trust him wholeheartedly to diagnose and treat any of the issues I have. I am so grateful to have been in his care today. Thank you, thank you.”
– Christine B.
“I felt I was finally in good hands. The doctor and team were very professional and courteous answering all my questions and addressing my concerns. I have confidence my back is on a path to be close to 100%. Thanks.”
– Ryan M.
“The whole staff and doctor were excellent.”
– Randy D.
– Janet F.
“My first experience there was pleasant; the staff was friendly; the doctor knew what was wrong with my knee and showed me a diagram of the underlining problem. Where an x-ray could not detect, but an MRI will be able to identify no instructions to take over the counter drugs to continue what I was doing and of course encourage weight loss which I am working on he’s charming.”
– Annette B.
“Dr. Alley is the bomb. Thanks as always doc.”
– Wendel B.
“Dr. Alley and his staff went above and beyond for me. I fell on the ice on Feb.12th and tore my quad tendon. In Jan I had a pacemaker placed to regulate my heart rate. Therefore, my knee surgery had to get done at Albany Med. Dr. Alley and his staff rearranged their schedules so he could complete my surgery at Albany Med on Feb 15th. The operation was a success, and my recovery is going well. I can't thank them enough. This is the third surgery I have had performed through The Bone & Joint Center. I can't say enough good things about the Doctors and staff at The Bone & Joint Center. I recommend them to everyone I know. Thanks to all at The Bone & Joint Center.”
– Gregory F.
“Dr. Alley reviewed the x-rays from the urgent care center, then examined my injury and explained his findings. Dr. Alley and the staff that I interacted with were pleasant. The office was busy, and the patients were acknowledged promptly.”
– Marilyn E.
“Dr. Alley "solved" a problem that had been plaguing me for years. I had been treating the wrong condition, and not getting better, shockingly. Now I know why. I went to see him for a different issue (water in the knee), and just happened to mention the other problem, which I thought was plantar fasciitis, but was Haglund’s Deformity (or "pump bump"). That was probably part of the reason I had water on the knee, too. Since I've been managing it differently, I've been issue-free. He also prescribed an NSAID ointment which has been extremely beneficial. Plus he's just fun. Max rocks.”
– Jeffrey W.
“Grateful for helping me with my pain relief and telling me what I may be dealing with in future, so I understand!”
– Tisa W.
“Dr. Alley made me feel at ease. Listened to me, answered my questions. I trust Dr. Alley and believe he will do his best to find the solution for the reason for my visit.”
– Stephanie L.
“Dr. Alley was very attentive, clear and direct in his evaluation and his description of my condition and options. I especially appreciated the prompt and clear attention as I was in pain and anxious to move toward a solution. Dr. Alley recognized this responded in a supportive and transparent manner.”
– William C.
“I had an appointment with Dr. Alley about a problem that I was having with my right knee. He listened to my concerns about my question, took some X-Rays and then offered some suggestions about what could be done to help eliminate the pain. For now, he had a staff member fit me with a brace which is helping to stabilize my knee and helping to eliminate some of the pain. He's a wonderful doctor and person. I would highly recommend Dr. Alley to family and friends. I want to mention that, I had an unfortunate accident at work and broke my tibia, fibula, and ankle, and my left leg was 180° from where it was supposed to be, my foot was facing backward! I was taken to Albany medical center, and fortunately for me, doctor Alley was working. He did a great job getting my leg turned in the right direction, and with his excellent surgical skills, some steel, and screws, after all these year's I'm still doing well. Thank you so much, Dr. Alley.”

Being new to the area I was apprehensive about seeing a different doctor than I’m used to, but Dr. Alley was top notch.”

“I met Dr. Alley 7 years ago. I was going to The Bone and Center for cortisone shots for pain in both shoulders. I then had fallen and needed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. Dr. Alley was recommended to me by 'many' people. What I liked about Dr. Alley was his professionalism and his sense of humor at a difficulty time. I have seen him over the past seven years for knee and back issues as well and most recently just had my left rotator cuff repaired. Both shoulders feel great and the scars ar barely noticeable. I am just as pleased with the outcome on my shoulder as I was the first time I met him seven years ago. I am more than happy to recommend Dr. Alley to other people, just as he was recommended to me seven years ago.”
