Horrible Patient Treatment

From the moment I arrived, the office staff was dismissive and rude. They claimed they didn't receive my referral, insinuated I was lying...until of course they found it. Mind you that through all of this I was in severe pain and I even offered to pay cash. This was just the first encounter - and things did not improve from there. I went back and read more reviews, where it seems Dr. Alex and his office actually have several complaints regarding patient treatment. My advice, choose a different doctor.

A DOCTOR YOU CAN TRUST

I can't say enough about this wonderful doctor and his super nice staff. These people exemplify what a good medical office should be like. Dr. Alex is everything that you look for in a great, caring doctor. I sure wish there were more doctors in the south Florida area like him.
