06/07/14 5 5 5 5 Mary Beth is someone who is genuinely looking out for the interests of her patients -- both in terms of health as well as financially. Unfortunately, I cannot say that for all of the physicians I have interacted with in the past. She was also very happy to explain her thought process and how a recommended prescription works to be completely transparent with me -- which I found very helpful and I can say has motivated me to take my medication as prescribed. Highly recommend.

12/09/11 5 5 5 5 I'v seen doctor alder in person only twice, but recently found myself in need of advice while travelling on a sensitive topic. I sent her an unreasonably long email with several questions, and was more than pleased to receive a detailed and incredibly helpful response in less than 24 hours. In a time where it is such a challenge to gain attention from a doctor when paying, I was extremely grateful for her willingness to go above and beyond what could reasonably be expected when responding to my email. Thanks Mary beth.

18/05/11 5 5 5 5 I think Dr. Adler really saved me. I was depressed, still am, but thought I could handle it. When I came to her she knew exactly where I was coming from and prescribed a medication. I'm anti meds but she made me feel comfortable about it.

23/12/10 4 5 5 5 I love Dr. Alder. She is very helpful and knowledgable, and gives you all the information you want about your exam (sometimes I feel like other doctors 'dumb it down' in order to get me out of there sooner). She also responds to email, which is great for getting test results and/or follow-up questions. I would recommend her without reservation!

22/07/10 5 5 5 5 Mary Beth is the most knowledgeable, compassionate nurse practioner. We have been seeing Mary Beth for 16 years and she has taken very good care of us, not only for HIV but for many other health problems. She always knows exactly what is wrong. She gives you her time and never rushes you. I would recommend her for both adults and children. Since my daughter has been seeing her since she was 4 years of age.  Respond

26/02/08 5 5 5 5 Excellent! Dr. Alder (Ph.D in HIV Studies) is actually a nurse practitioner, but has a better understanding of HIV than any of the other doctors in her practice.
