Real Patients, Real Stories

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Alden and his staff! From my first initial visit I felt very comfortable and confident that I would be receiving excellent care. Dr. Alden has a very calming sense about him and offers the time to thoroughly address any questions or concerns. He performed a hip replacement for me in which the surgery and recuperation were flawless. I have seen many orthopedic surgeons prior, and he is by far the best of the best! I highly recommend him!
