I was so sorry to hear of Dr. Alpers passing. My sympathies to Grethen, James, Jessica and all his family. I always had the utmost respect for Dr. Alper . He was always so kind and affable to all those he worked with and of course those he treated. It was easy to see he was genuine and incapable of putting on airs. I'll always remember him as the kindhearted doctor with the big smile wearing the suspenders! Rest in peace Doctor Alper...you've earned it! Great job!

Dear Gretchen and family,
I greatly appreciated all the work that Dr. Alper did to help set up the Correctional Health program at Anoka County. I could always count on him to conduct clinics in spite of some of the trials that he went through. He was a wonderful man and will be missed by many.

I had the privledge of working with Dr. Alper. He was an extrordinary man with piercing intellegence and wit, yet unassuming and respectful. He was a consummate professional who loved the practice of medicine and persevered during the most trying times with courage and dignity. I feel blessed to have had him as a friend.
