It was the worst experience of my life. The receptionist scheduled my appointment at 9:00 am. I wasn't seen until 10:00. The doctor came in looked at my lumps. TOLD ME STAGE ONE CANCER IS 1'm or less STAGE TWO CANCER IS 1'm to 3mm. STAGE 3 is 3'mm or more .STAGE 4 cancer is the same but in different locations. He told me I needed to go and have surgery ASAP. I went to a vascular surgeon thank god..I'm fine.. I was going out of my mind for weeks..WORST EXPERIENCE

Sketchy Doctor and shady practice. Doesn't explain anything and just wants to charge you RIDICULOUS amounts of money. Do not trust any of them... RUN before they do irreversible damage AND rob you!

Dr. Alexander is very old school because he spends time with you and doesn't have a computer in front of him. He helped me connect with a specialist that was perfect for me and also called the MD and expedited my appointment thank you Dr. Alexander
