The best surgeon in Okeechobee and surrounding counties! He is very personable and will drop what he is doing to come to your rescue! The best bed side manners I have ever seen in a physician! I highly recommend him to anyone young or old!

Dr. Alejo and his staff went above and beyond! I have nothing but great things to say about them and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a general surgery consult. The only complaint was wait time in his office but after speaking with him we realized he had emergency cases to take...more
