What can I say that can really describe the care I received under doctor alden. For background i am an MENS1 patient and when i went to see him for pancreatic surgery, both other parts of my syndrome were acting up. On top of the gastronoma that was plaguing me. Dr alden took me in as a patient and didn’t stop pushing for treatment for me. I was brought up at tumor boards for Lenox hill and he brought all needed doctors on board for my case and to see me. It was something I never had before, someone pushing to make sure every part of me was fixed. The pancreatic surgery I received was very non invasive due to his technique and skill. If in the future I need another surgery (I had two tumors) theres no other person I am going to see but dr alden. This man is a hero to me as I’ve suffered for a long time with no relief until i met him.
