I had done allot of research on the procedure and doctors that performed the surgery. I chose Alexander eye clinic even though I would have a 90 minute drive each way to the appointments. I am VERY happy I made the choice I did. The staff is extremely friendly and so is Dr Alexander. Everyone took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered and I felt comfortable.

I had LASIK surgery with Dr Alexander, and I'm so happy I did! I had other consults and felt comfortable within his expert hands. He is a very compassionate doctor, and his staff is knowledgeable and caring. If you're looking for the right place to have eye surgery, the Alexander Eye Institute is the place to go!
Neenah, WI |
Cancelled my surgery because he didn't like the questions I was asking him. Arrogant and belittling. I was NOT reimbursed for the prescriptions they had me fill and vitamins I bought from them for my surgery that THEY cancelled.
