He examined me and then sent me for x-rays which showed him what was causing my problems. He showed me the x-rays and described the issues causing me pain. He gave me some helpful suggestions as to some things I could do to help lessen the symptoms and gave me some options to consider for my treatment.

“As always Dr. Alley is at his best. He is not only a tremendous surgeon but he is one of the funniest people I've ever met. My visit usually turns into 30 minutes of laughter and humor then discussions about what's going on with my numerous orthopedic issues which he has taken care of for multiple years. As a former law enforcement officer with the United States Marshall Service, injuries were not uncommon and a relationship was formed between myself and Dr. Alley. He is a tremendous surgeon and a great asset to the Bone and Joint Center.”

His bedside manner is second to none. He treats you as a person, better yet as a friend instead of just another patient. I can never repay the outstanding treatment and care he has given me. All I can do is say thank you.”
