“He was friendly and to the point. Very efficient yet thorough. Oh yeah, he fixed my problem, too.”

Patient rating: 5 stars
“Excellent experience. Dr. Alfred was able to diagnose my problem before the MRI results were available. His bedside manner is a pleasure; He truly seems to enjoy working with patients. Dr. Alfred was also willing to fight with insurance company (the preauthorization for surgery was denied) to ensure that I received the necessary care. My experience was truly exceptional.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Alfred's for well over a decade. He has treated me for a variety of joint-related injuries over the years, including arthroscopic surgeries on both knees and both shoulders. My experiences as his patient have been, without exception, exemplary. I have trusted him with my orthopedic health since my first appointment, and will continue to do so (alas, should the need arise!).”

“I am in the Venus Trial Meniscus Study and have been so pleased with Dr. Alfred's skills as a surgeon. He takes his time to explain and answer questions that I have had. For 12 years I have had problems with my knee and was in constant pain. After working with Dr. Alfred I was able to climb two high peaks without the pain. As a teacher I give him an A+ with a gold star!”

“I went to The Bone & Joint Center for a second opinion. I was sent for an additional test to further evaluate my knee. I was so happy that Dr. Alfred looked into my concerns. I wasn’t dismissed and told it was something else. Granted I have work to do on my end, but he found that cause of my injury. Thank you for checking things out. Surgery in two weeks will update the review at a later time.”

“Very pleasant, made me feel comfortable, very down to earth. I was actually there with a friend, for her appt. And ended up liking him so much, asked if I could make an appt for my tennis elbow. He said he would be happy to see me. So I went to make my appt and instead they said I could see him right then, 10 minutes and I was seeing him. It’s was a quick informative appt. I was in and out in less than 20 mins. Very very friendly staff!”

“Dr. Alfred was fantastic. Very matter-of-fact. I liked his approach and directness. I appreciated his candor and felt very comfortable putting my knee in his hands. I am very satisfied so far and will recommend him to anyone who asks. He and his team were very professional with a touch of humor, which I greatly appreciated, and they helped me when I had an insurance issue with no hesitation. Everyone from when I walked in to the people in the operating room were top notch, and I am very fortunate.”

“Promptly seen and my discomfort immediately addressed. Although looking forward to, and hoping for an optimistic outcome from the treatment provided, have already been scheduled for a follow-up appointment to be seen by a physician who specializes in the area that continues to cause me discomfort rather than overlooking it. Thank you to Dr. Alfred for being sensitive to how I was feeling and understanding the pain and discomfort I am experiencing.”

“I'm a contractor that repairs and remodels homes. The pains and range of motion in my shoulders have been preventing me from doing certain jobs where I have to work over head. On January 23, 2017 Dr. Alfred repaired my right shoulder. (4) weeks later I already have far more range of motion without the pain. Everyone I've dealt with from Dr. Alfred, his staff, the nurses that took care of me before and after surgery, and the receptionist made this process a pleasant as it could possibly be. This is the 3rd time Dr. Alfred has operated (2 left knee, 1-right shoulder) on me. The time he takes with each patient explaining what the problems are, how they can be corrected and the quality of service from the first visit to last follow after surgery has in my case always been a top shelf. It's for these reasons I will be following up later this year to have my left shoulder repaired by Dr. Alfred and his great staff. To Dr. Alfred and the staff at the Bone & Joint Ctr, thank you very much for all you've done.”

“Over the past decade or so, I have been under Dr. Alfred's expert care for a variety of joint-related issues, including injuries to both knees and both shoulders. Most recently, he successfully treated me for pain in my left shoulder. As always, Dr. Alfred provided me with exemplary care, with which I was completely satisfied. I trust his treatment and his guidance implicitly. I cannot recommend him highly enough as a medical professional.”
