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
