initial visit with new Dr....went very well
Dr. Alpers was on time, seemed to be warm, friendly and took the time to ask some initial questions to learn a bit more about me as a new patient.

All in all the video visit was fine, but I would have preferred to meet in person the first time and had a follow up via Video vs. the Video visit first followed by an in person visit. All good.

As always Caren and Dr. Alper do an amazing job!
The purpose of my visit was to address the new pain I was experiencing in my lower back, and and Dr. Alper ordered an MRI for that. I told Dr. Alper about the prescription printout I had received with Etodolac outlining the extreme dangers of taking this medication long-term, especially for elderly people, of which I am one. (Dr. Alper has prescribed Etodolac to relieve my severe pain from osteoarthritis.) I told him I wanted to talk with him about this. He told me we would get to that later in the visit. He did not address this concern later. He may have forgotten, and I did not mention it again. Dr. Alper did spend time talking with me about the issue of anorexia that his nurse, Karen, had noted in the medical workup. He was concerned to know if my psychiatrist was aware of this problem and helping me with it.
