      I can't say enough about Dr. Alessi. Wish I had found him 3 years ago. He is a fantastic surgeon, a caring individual, and a great person. He took the time to explain exactly what was wrong with me, answer all my questions, and to make sure I was comfortable with what he was going to do to fix my problem. After surgery, either he or a member of his staff checked on my almost daily for a week to make sure I was doing good and didn't have any questions. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

      I literally can not say enough good things about Dr. Alessi on so many levels. First and foremost he is an AMAZING surgeon and was able to repair my husband aneurysm on his aorta. What we appreciate most, is his kind bedside manor, his ability to communicate so we both understood everything and most importantly....his dedication to his patients. I've never seen another doctor who truly cares like Dr. Alessi. The world needs more doctors like him.
