Dr. Mark E Alexander has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Waited 2 1/2 hrs to see Dr. Alexander. He spent considerable time checking our son more thoroughly than most doctors and also really talked one on one with our son for a lengthy time and discussed really heartfelt issues concerning his medical situation and his life in general. We were all amazed at his ability to get to the heart of matters and really connect with our son on many issues. It was a lot of information to take in, but an amazing appointment. Dr. Alexander is unique and refreshing in his approach. We really appreciated that he is knowledgeable across other medical specialties to help put pieces together with complicated medical situations and not tunnel visioned in his own medical field. He is specific as to his medical opinions and objectives, and has a healthy holistic mindset as well. My son really liked him and respected him. The staff were wonderful, friendly, and helpful in treatment from the first call to set the appointment, so we could manage care until we could get in to see the Dr. We left with some specific treatments, but we are just beginning testing, so we will see how it goes in treating the major medical problems presented.
