Great doctor. Very thorough and listens to what you say.
HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR EVER! HE IS VERY SMART AND SPENDS ALOT OF TIME WITH ME!! HE IS VERY KIND AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ALL OF MY FRIEND AND FAMILY!! THE WAIT TIME FOR HIM WAS NOT THAT LONG CONSIDERING THAT HE IS PACKED WITH PATIENTS!! HE IS MY FAVORITE DOCTOR AND I PLAN ON HAVING HIM AS MY PRIMARY DOCTOR FOR AS LONG AS HE WORKS!!!!
I had been to 2 prior doctors about my thyroid cancer diagnosis. Both were smart, but really left me with many unanswered questions. I was recommended to see Dr. Alexander. The apt was difficult to get on short notice, as he is in very high demand. However, he was most gracious, sat down with a smile, and worked to help me more than any other prior doctor. He clearly is a leader in the field, and his ability to really connect and care for his patients in unparalleled. Super doctor!
