“I met Dr. Alfred through a mutual friend in the past. A few weeks back, I twisted my knee which resulted in discomfort and swelling. I contacted The Bone & Joint Center requesting an appointment with Dr. Alfred and the office was kind enough to fit me into his schedule on May 31, 2016. Dr. Alfred diagnosed the problem and provided the appropriate treatment which has solved the issue. Great to have skilled physicians available to us in the Albany area. The experience could not have been better.”

“While training for a half-marathon, I started to experience knee pains. I was referred to Dr. Shatynski for a consult. He was friendly, professional, and thorough. His diagnosis and recommendations were instrumental in recovering from an IT band injury that was a result of over-training. He provided me with advice and a plan to heal and prevent the injury from reoccurring. I was very pleased with him and would not hesitate to refer or return to him for treatment in the future.”

“I came to Dr. Fuchs with bone-on-bone arthritis in both knees, and weighing 400 pounds, I could barely walk and move. He motivated me to first, lose over 100 pounds through diet and exercise, then gave me two new knees and my life back! I can't say enough good about Dr. Fuchs and everyone else on the staff. It is coming up on one year since I had bilateral TKR and I once again am able to enjoy life and do the things that I want to do. I have continued my diet and exercise and have now lost a total of 147 pounds! None of this would have happened had I not met Dr. Fuchs, I owe him getting my life back!”
– Gary L.
“Just had pain problem in my right foot that Dr. DiPreta did surgery on 2 years ago. After a careful exam, he pinpointed the problem, but had xrays done just to make sure nothing was broken. He had a foot brace put on, and I am now going to PT for 6 weeks, as it is posterior tibular tendonitis. I think he's pretty top notch!”
– Debra A.
“Fantastic doctor. Great bedside manner.”
– Kelly F.

“I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Alfred. He has done surgery on my right shoulder and both knees and I had a great result with each. With my recent visit, it was done in a very timely fashion. He explained everything and the options. I have, on numerous occasions, referred people to Dr. Alfred dealing with my clients who get injured at work.”
– Robert K.
“In early May, I fell and felt pain in my left leg. I requested an appointment with Dr. Richard Alfred, who saw me the same afternoon. He reviewed my xrays and quickly diagnosed a non-displaced fracture in my left fibula. He recommended that I carry on with my normal activities. Dr. Alfred indicated that the pain would dissipate in approximately six weeks and that I could take over the counter pain relievers such as Advil or Aleve. He checked in with me over the subsequent weeks and his estimate of my recovery was spot on. I did not miss a day of work, nor teaching, and in the time frame Dr. Alfred had indicated, my leg was, indeed, back to normal.”
– Gerald S.
“Dr. Mulligan is very competent, friendly, and caring, but no-nonsense. I am very confident in his abilities and happy with his work.”
– Peter F.
“I actually enjoy going in to see Dr. Schneider!! He has a quirky sense of humor that I get and it makes the appointment enjoyable! He also is very matter-of-fact and doesn't sugar coat things - which is great in my opinion!”
