Great Doc

I have had both of my hips totally replaced by Dr. Alexander and both surgeries went off without a hitch. Dr. Alexander is very caring and very responsive to me. I told him if I ever need another replacement he was the man for the job.

former patient

Dr. Alexander seems to be more concerned with the statistics of how many patients he has performed surgery on successfully. When a difficult situation arises as a result of error on his part he seems reluctant to admit his mistakes and would rather pass the patient on to another doctor. In other words, he prefers the less complicated surgeries and he is reluctant to admit errors on his part.

Great Physician

Recently had knee replaced and am extremely happy with results. Questions prior to surgery all answered -wonderful care at Crestwood - Dr. Alexander checked on me twice while in Hosp. and on post op visit - staff responsive following surgery. The only surprise has been low level of pain and speed of recovery. Great physician!
