I had a great experience with Dr. Alexander. Fearful of surgery for many years, he made me feel at ease and comfortable with my situation. Pre-op and surgery was a success. Didn’t feel a thing before and after surgery. Dr. Alexander is the best.

My experience with Dr. Alexander from beginning to end was fantastic. He was caring, thoughtful, truthful, and you just felt at ease with him. He never seemed rush and would answer all my questions. I am so grateful to him and how he has changed my life.
