This was the best experience I have had going to a new Dr. The staff was very polite and made me feel comfortable.

Luckily a spot on my back that my wife Chrissie was worried about (and I could not see) turned out to be harmless, but Dr. Alexander found and froze a spot on my cheek that I was concerned about (it never really healed). Don Gardner

Saw Dr. Alexander for a lesion that appeared on my hand seemingly out of nowhere. He prescribed a specific lotion, and 2 weeks later, it is hardly noticeable. I can't ask for much better results than that. Staff is friendly and professional. Will definitely be going back for future derm appointments.

Dr. Alexander is a straight to the point, no nonsense doctor. I like that. He doesn't chit chat but goes into detail when he is discussing what he sees and find and if you need to worry about it or not. I would highly recommend him.

Milwaukee, WI |
I am a new patient and my experience was a good one from start to finish. I was welcomed at the front door that was nice! These days that can be a challenge. A friendly welcoming greeting in a new situation is always nice. I waited about ten minutes and was taken to a room and a tech came in to get my pertinent information she was polite and made me feel comfortable. After that was finished the dr came in was very friendly and addressed my needs. He was friendly professional and a pleasure.

in Menomonee Falls, WI |
Top notch doctor and staff from the moment we walked in the door. Dr. Alexander made us feel comfortable and explained our options thoroughly so we could make an informed decision about treatment. All staff we encountered were welcoming, friendly, actually smile (rare to find these days) and seemed to enjoy their jobs and taking care of patients. Wonderful experience! So glad we decided to change doctors. Definitely worth the farther drive!

I have been going to Dr. Alexander since he started his practice. He was outstanding the first time I saw him, and remains the best skin doc I have ever seen. I have been getting an annual exam for over 30 years, and he is easily the best I've seen. He is funny, personable and genuinely interested in my health! I recommend him to all of my family and friends. (And the wait time is always under 10 minutes!)
in Milwaukee, WI |
He's honest, friendly & down to earth.
in Milwaukee, WI |
I've been seeing Dr. Alexander for over a year now. He stands out from other physicians because of his natural talent for making patients feel at ease and understood. He has always listened closely to my concerns, explained thoroughly what I should expect from treatment, and took time to answer any questions. Most of all, he appreciated that even largely cosmetic skin issues can cause a lot of anxiety for patients.
Milwaukee, WI |
Dr. Alexander has a great "bedside" manner, which I think is very important trait for a dermatologist. He was able to provide me with the treatment I requested, while also getting to know me as a new patient and providing some education regarding melanoma risk/skin checks.
in Elm Grove, WI |
Very competent, helpful, and likable.
in Wauwatosa, WI |
Exceeded my expectations and was extremely thorough. He took notice of what others overlooked and genuinely heard my concerns about my progress at this stage of my condition.

Dr. Alexander has been treating my daughter for severe exema and he is great with her, he directs questions to her and she feels wonderful being able to explain for herself to Dr. Alexander how she is feeling .
Chicago, IL |
I recommend Dr. Alexander due to the fact he has been the only person to help my five year old son. When my son was 3 started getting a wart on the top of his left wrist. I've tried everything over the counter (dry ice) to home remedies (duck tape), etc. I got to the point where I wanted him to get seen. So far since summer break started I was able to have him be seen on a consistent basis biweekly. I've seen great results, with possible two more treatments. My son is very happy??
Milwaukee, WI |
Dr. Alexander is very thorough in my annual skin check-ups, and answers all my questions. I had a large cyst on my back removed and he did a wonderful job with very little evidence later of scarring. I feel confident in his care and would recommend him without hesitation. Staff is excellent too.
in Milwaukee, WI |
I have seen Dr. Alexander twice. The first time was for a pimple that appeared near my lip area. It wasn't going away and I thought I should have it checked out. Dr. Alexander examined the area and gave me a prescription for a medication to apply to the area. Within 2-3 applications, it cleared up and has not returned. The second visit was for a full body skin exam. I felt Dr. Alexander's exam was thorough and efficient.
in Milwaukee, WI |
They explained everything well and we're understanding. I would definitely recommend them. Jennifer
in Milwaukee, WI |
Very personable!
in Milwaukee, WI |
Dr Alexander - from the very beginning of my association with him - has always been very personable and professional with me as a person, as well having a fine conversational attitude. I needed to see a Dermatologist because I was having an allergic reaction to some ink in one of my tattoos. I was not happy with the thought of surgery to remove that portion of the tattoo (which Dr Alexander agreed was an extreme measure), we agreed on steroid shots and a cream to ease the itching. Very happy.
