“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!!!”

“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!”

“My visit was very comfortable and professional from beginning to end. I was brought into the exam room at the exact time of my appointment and saw the doc shortly after that. I was then taken into the X-ray and brought back to see the doctor. I found everyone I came in contact with to be charming and professional. From beginning to end, I was there a total of 40 minutes. Being new to the area I was apprehensive about seeing a different doctor than I’m used to, but Dr. Alley was top notch.”

“Dr. Alley and his staff are the most helpful and friendly people I have ever seen. They care about the patients. After he thoroughly explained the cause and treatment, I felt much better. Being needle phobic for my whole life, I worried about the shot although it was not painful at all. Dr. Alley and his staff waited until my husband came to give me the shot. I appreciate how much they care about the patients. Thank you, Dr. Alley and the excellent staff.”

“I went in for knee pain. I brought x-rays of my knees in with me. He looked at them, checked my knees, and then moved my knees around to check my range of motion in my hips. He immediately did x-rays of my bones, and within 10 minutes he was showing me the x-rays and explaining what was going on and why. He was so concise and thorough. I was in and out in half an hour, with a diagnosis and a plan. Dr. Alley is great!”

“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.”
