Dr. Alexander performed a successful Microdiscectomy on my L5-S1 approximately 6 weeks ago. I suffered from Sciatica on my R-Side for about 6 months and was bedridden towards the end. I knew I needed surgery. I had consults with 2 other surgeons before I met with Dr. Alexander. Three of our friends have had the same surgery with Dr. Alexander, and all of their surgeries were successful. I am 6 wks out and feel like I have my life back. Many thanks to Dr. A's Staff & Helge! :)

The office staff is amazing and friendly. But I waited a long time & watched others with appointments after mine be seen and leave prior to the Dr seeing me. I was in excruciating pain, but he was numb to this. He was cocky and bragged he was the only doctor who will give me the correct evaluation. Although he had recommendations, a day later I have too many questions and I am still waiting to hear from the office regarding my physical therapy and pain management. I believe he doesn't care.

Dr. Alexander is the only surgeon that I would allow to touch my spine. He has successfully performed 2 surgeries for me over the last 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. He explains the procedures thoroughly and makes sure you know exactly what will happen. Excellent surgeon!

Dr. Alexander always took his time with me and explained everything he was going to do, during and after the surgery. And he's always so nice. I recently had neck surgery and am feeling great. And had back surgery about 6 years ago as well. Helge is great too. He is always so helpful and understanding. Even if you've asked the same question more than a couple times. I would totally recommend Dr. Alexander and his staff. They're all great. Thanks!!
