I will like to thank this doctor for cancelling a cataract surgery a few days before the surgery. Because of her incompetence and dishonesty in claiming that her office no longer accepts my insurance. Surgery was done by NY Eye and Ear by REAL professionals. She did have the decency to explain or call and let me know why she cancelled my surgery. My last visit to her I waited close to two hours and almost passed out because I am a diabetic. Both doctor and her staff needs to be retrained.

Highly Recommend ! From the time I first arrived, I felt so relaxed and welcomed, a real caring environment, always willing to be available. The staff is so friendly, very refreshing. They should teach other Dr. offices how to treat clients/customers. I came late the last patient for the day and the Dr and staff was willing to see me.

Dr. Caroline Alexander makes me feel comfortable, she is very caring and thorough. My cataract operation at the hands of Dr's Alexander and Morcos was the most interesting experience; I felt no pain, they communicated with me during the operation and I felt relaxed and fulfilled afterwards. I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander's caring and efficient practice to anyone in need of eye care.

Dr Caroline Alexander is an excellent and kind physician who not only correctly diagnosed my rare cataract condition but aurhixally and precisely corrected my significantly impaired vision. My cataracts and astigmatism in both eyes were simultaneously removed and corrected leaving me with a clarity of sight I had only hoped for. I now only require glasses for reading! Dr. Alexander is a very patient Dr who genuinely cares for her patients .

Dr. Alexander is a sweetheart ! She takes her time with each patient and explains everything clearly, she really cares. My sister recommended me to see her and now that I have met her, I'm going to bring the whole family.

I was able to walk in and the Dr was able to see me that day!

I had the worst experience with Dr. Caroline Alexander. I am going to file an official complaint. She has the worst attitude and has misbehaved with me and verbally abused me. She has no sense of time and often shows up late to her office. My last visit, I had to walk out because she refused to stop gossiping with her assistant while making me wait over 30 minutes. She did not treat me with respect and was screaming at me because I said if she can see me since I had work obligation.
