Was horrified by this man’s behavior. My daughter went for terrible hip pain and he said he could not do anything for her and he acted happy about it. He had all types of things listed on his website that he could do for hips problems and wasn’t willing to try an one of them. His jovial attitude while my daughter’s face was contorted in pain was the most horrible part of it. Would not take my dog to him.

I took my daughter, 16, to see Dr.Alexander for hip pain. He and his staff were punctual, pleasant and professional. He took the time to explain her issues, answered questions and advised physical therapy for her. Would highly recommend him!

Dr. Alexander is great. I had a tkr on my left knee in March, 2018. He was thorough, compassionate, knowledgeable, and addressed my concerns on blood clot possibility. Having my right knee replaced in Nov/Dec. Of this year. You couldn't be in better hands. I had a lot of questions and he was never too busy to answer.

This Doctor has been a blessing to me, my husband is so happy with the results. I can finally walk after not being able to walk in years, This Doctor is so easy to talk to, It's like a friend in your front room. He explains everything, follows up on everything, his assistant Janelle answers every question you forget to ask, The desk personnel are always very friendly and are willing to help. Hopefully I won't need him again, but if I ever have a joint problem, I will be calling Doctor Alexander

My mom had a knee replacement and Dr. Alexander did a great job! He knows what he's doing and she can run again! Her X-rays and visits with all doctors a year later show how perfectly it was done and fits. He's an easy doctor to talk/relate to. He doesn't rush you. Thank you!! Highly recommend Dr Alexander!!

He was rude to me when he found out I am disabled and treated me like a burden on society. Didn't explain my injury or the plan of care. Poor bedside manner.
