My 2 yr old son, was born with a multicystic dysplastic kidney, which left him with only one functioning kidney. This "bad" kidney started causing pain making him very uncomfortable. We went and saw Dr Alexander and he was AMAZING! Ended up doing surgery and removing his kidney a few days later. He was able to explain and answer EVERY one of my questions before and after the surgery. I thank god my son was in good hands. Very happy with this dr and his staff. This is def your go-to dr!

One of a kind physician with impeccable surgical skills and uncanny bedside manner . Systematic , cares enough to explain every step of the process , yet makes quick decisions when necessary . We were lucky that he was on call when we were at Valley ER . He practically saved my daughter ‘s life .

Dr Alexander is not only an intelligent & more than competent surgeon, he is a wonderful, compassionate & caring physician. He has superior skills in working with children of all ages. He treated my 16 year old daughter with respect & spoke directly to her & us as human beings. We were worried until we got to know his staff both pre & post surgery & I have never met such a group of professional, competent nurses & staff. Thanks to everyone for making a crazy, scary situation go well. The Looby’s

14 years ago on March 19th God put the most wonderful Doctor in the operating room with my daughter Dr Frederick Alexander. When we first met Dr Alexander he came into the room and introduced his selfish to my daughter and asking her questions. That impressed me the most and let me know I could trust my daughter's life in his hands. My daughter had a Fibro nodular Hyperplasia tumor Dr Alexander removed this tumor. I don't know where my daughter would be if it wasn't for Dr Frederick Alexander.

Dr Alexander did surgery on my daughter to correct a midgut volvulus that was the result of intestinal malrotation. He was an amazingly skilled surgeon and also a very kind person. He was great with my young daughter, who was usually scared of Drs, and her surgery went even better than we thought it would. He also thoroughly explained everything to me on several occasions which was very much appreciated as I had never heard of her condition before!

Dr. Alexander performed emergency surgery on my 9 year old Daughter. She needed her appendix removed. Dr. Alexander was referred to us as the best surgeon to serve our area. I can tell you that he did not disappoint. I high recommend him for all your surgical needs. He calmed two worried parents down and assured us that everything would be okay. We were met at HUMC by his resident Doctor and he had excellent mannerism. This is just a reflection of what is expected by Dr. Alexander. A+++

My 3 yo son had a thyroglossal cyst. Fortunately when we were sent to the hospital Dr. Frederick Alexander was there. He was kind and reassuring before the surgery and made my husband my son & I feel comfortable having the surgery done. He did a wonderful job my son barely has a scar. Come to find out He is not in network for our insurance and his office worked things out with my insurance company so that we did not owe them a lot of money. I couldn't be happier with our experience.
