I had surgery with Dr. Alexander. I loved how my vision turned out and the care I received so much my father had surgery with him shortly after my surgery. I've recommended him to all of my friends as well. If you want your surgery done right and want the best care, go to Dr. Alexander and his wonderful staff.

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.

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.
