To the Alpert Family. Dr. Alpert and your family are in my prayers. I cannot thank him enough for his dedication to new faculty and staff at Boston Medical Center. He impacted so many lives in the medical field and was so passionate about the life of the underserved populations. Thank you for caring! Carine

Joel was first a teacher and professional guide, who subsequently became a close friend, always concerned about Israel and our personal welfare. Sadly we did not connect over the last few years, except by mail updates.
He was a special person, a human dynamo, and a special friend.
Will be sorely missed by us

I am so sad to hear Dr. Alpert passed away. He was my Dr. as a child thru my youth. He came to our home on house calls whenever we were sick. When I had a child. I located DR. Alpert and asked for his help when my son was sick. He took time out of his very busy schedule an made time to see us at his office. I was 30 years old at the time and it was wonderful to see him after so many years. He hadn't changed at all. I trusted him as a child and as an adult. He will be truly missed. I don't know if we will ever see a Dr. practice like he did. God bless his family. He will be truly missed.

We were so sorry to read that Joel had died. We always admired him as a doctor, father, husband, friend, and as a real mensch. It was a privilege to work with him on Springboard. It is too bad we all lost touch these past few years, but our thoughts are with you at this time. Love to all in the family.

I started my nursing career at the then Boston City Hospital and was amazed at the dedication of the entire pediatric department and came to soon realize that it was becasuse of Dr Alpert and his committment to the children of Boston. His career was remarkable and he left his mark on pediatrics . My condolences to the family

Dear Barbara and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Joel's death. He was one hell of a guy, in so many ways. One of my favorite Joel stories is from the year I was chief resident and we were hosting the medical students who were interviewing for our residency program in Pediatrics at Boston City Hospital ("the real St. Elsewhere"). Joel introduced himself, saying "My name is Dr. Joel Alpert." I teased him, saying, Joel, your NAME is not Doctor! Your mom did not call you doctor in the delivery room! His response, without missing a beat, was "you didn't know my mother." Joel's legacy is felt in every neighborhood health center in Boston, where so many of us practice the kind of medicine Joel professed. He lives on in the city of Boston, for sure. You have my most profound sympathy.

To the Alpert Family
My heart goes out to you in this time of sadness. Dr. Alpert was an amazing man- an outstanding physician, a mentor to hundereds in the field and a wise and honest beacon to all. This morning I must miss his service as I am in clinic but every heart I listen to, every liver edge I look for, I will know that Dr. Alpert's imparted knowledge is working through my, and the hands of all the clinicians he impacted. Peace to all of you!
