Dr. Knepper has always taken great care with me. He is now navigating me through lung cancer. I always value his opinions.

Review for Dr. Knepper

It has been a pleasure working with Dr Alexander and his team. I came in with a great deal of pain and left with none. Dr Alexander and team answered all my questions and were very helpful. Call him now if you have back pain.

Review for Dr. Alexander Jr

I was so impressed with Dr Firilas I wish now that he did my original surgery as I know it would have gone well. At least he can correct the mistake right in the office and I will be going back to have him do so.
