Patient Comments (3)
in Dover, DE |
Dr. Edward Alexander III, is by far the best doctor in his field in the Dover DE area. I have been to him about 5 times for different procedures. Hernia repair, gallbladder removal, colonoscopy, wart removal etc. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Biggest issue is getting into his office as everyone wants to see him. I have been seeing him for 15 years at least and will continue to see him as my needs warrant. He is by far my #1 doctor to go to first and foremost. Superb !!!

The best doctor around! Knows how to do procedures old school and new ways! Has the best bedside manner. Is so nice and gentle. Is not a pill pusher. Is courteous and listens to all of your concerns. Answers any and all questions to make you feel confident and comfortable. Has his patients best interest at heart at all times. Gives 100% every time you see him. Makes time for his patients. You never feel rushed when you ate talking to him. He makes you feel like you are his only priority.
