This was the longest I had wait before being called in. It's usually half the time.

I usually wait hours between the time I register to the time I leave at other doctor's offices. I'm usually done within an hour here. This office is extremely efficient.

Very good. Staff was very courteous

The young lady at the front desk did not have a pleasant demeanor. Despite only having a couple of patients in the waiting area. She didn't even make eye contact with me. I felt as if she was bothered by my presence. The young lade that escorted me to the room also displayed in appropriate eye contact. She did not look at me at all! Fortunately, the extremely pleasant interaction with Dr. Alost and the young lady that accompanied him during the exam, compensated for the unpleasant interactions with the other two staff.

I truly appreciate the short time it took to be seen and receive treatment. My appointment was scheduled at noon, and I was out the door at 1:00 pm! I had actually planned to take the afternoon off after my appointment. Instead, I went back to the office.
Aug 1, 2019
Every single staff member was so extremely professional and kind

I have been to two other ortho surgeons who just blew me off so I was nervous to see Dr. Alost. Not only did he take the time to explain everything in detail, but he actually listened and made me feel like I was a part of my care. I recommended him to my mom, even, I was so impressed

I'm very great full for Dr. Alost fitting me in his schedule! I'm Dr. Ledfords patient but she was on vacation and I desperately needed a steroid shot in my knee! Dr. Alost really did help me out!

Dr. Alosts' nurse apologized for the long wait. she was very nice! His assistant was also very helpful, she gave me a few pointers on how to take care of any swelling that should occur.
