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.
