OU Physicians Patient Feb 3, 2016

Dr. Algan and her assistant doctor(i cannot remember her name offhand) were very helpful in explaining the type of knee injury that my daughter had experienced. They also detailed how the next few appointments would go in order to decide if surgery will be necessary. They offered two recommendations for treatment as of right now, along with estimated time frames for wearing the knee brace. I feel very confident that Dr. Algan will treat my daughter's injury with precision and careful judgment in order to giver her the best possible outcome for recovery. Both doctors were very professional and friendly, and I do believe that Dr. Algan has a vast amount of knowledge and experience in her field that makes me feel comfortable in having her treat my child.

Dr. Algan has been amazing. I would recommend her to anyone. If ortho services are needed again, I will be requesting her services.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 21, 2015

After Dr. Algan was allowed to treat my granddaughter every answer would be excellent but the first doctor every answer would be not so good

OU Physicians Patient Jun 23, 2015

We were released as ______ no longer needs specialized care and is to continue with outside physical therapy per Dr. Algan's orders. However if she has any flare-ups, Dr. Algan said to call and she'd get us in immediately. This is very reassuring.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 7, 2015

Dr. Algan is an excellent physician. She was very helpful and courteous. I have taken my children to see her for various issues, as well as recommended her to many of my daughter's teammates when they have needed care. She was very helpful and encouraging for my own health issues. Thank you for making this a good experience.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2015

Love Dr. Algon. She is always friendly yet concerned and I admire her for being straight forward. I like that if she feels an injury is needing more diagnostic than she can provide, she is willing to refer my child to another Dr. that is more specialized in that area.
