Dr. Alexander is very concerned about my health problem. My condition is complicated and he continues to seek ways to try to eliminate the chronic fungal infection in my nose as well as my atypical migraine headaches. I am so glad that I found this practice and Dr. Alexander! After learning more about me and my unusual medical conditions, he insisted on treating me personally, and not his PA's. I appreciate this greatly!

Not what I expected in a professional doctor's office. After 2 visits and a CAT scan on sinuses as well as 2 prescriptions still no relief. Doctor is no longer seeing ANY patients..he's only doing surgery and leaving the rest up to his staff of young nurses to diagnose and treat patients.

Had two appointments set in a full month. The front office and the surgical office have no idea who's doing what. They blamed my insurance, my doctor's office and the imaging center when the blame was theirs. I would not recommend spending any time with this doctor. The PA was very nice and helpful.

I think it is appalling that next to No doctors accept Medicaid in Taos. He is one of many. Most people i know go out of town for everything,including seeing NON greedy Physicians who are not tied into the pharmaceutical matrix.

I was grossly overbilled for a simple sinus w/balloon dilation. This procedure did not even work. I was in excruciating pain when I left the office and which continued for at least a week. I WOULD NOT recommend Dr. Ian Alexander or anyone on his staff to perform this procedure without getting the full cost estimate given to you. I was told a verbal amount and was billed ten times that amount.

I wanted to say thank you for taking care of my daughter. She has had breathing issues, ear infections all during high school as she was on the swim team. She was nervous, ears were throbbing, with breathing at night, after exercise more difficult, making her feel terrible. You were kind & patient with her taking time to listen to her. When you did the surgery it went so smoothly your entire office took care of her. I am so grateful as she feels "great" again. I would recommend you always.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. They seem to run an outfit that wants to get as much as they can from insurance companies. They set up appoiments that is supposed to be for one thing and than the Dr. decides to give it another month. I have been going to this doctor since he open his Rio Rancho office back in 2010 and I will never come back after my last experience two weeks ago. Also his billing department is terriable. This is one doctor to stay away from.

Dr. Alexander was great with my young son. He had a issue with his throat and it was super swollen and sore. Dr. Alexander put my worry to ease as he took care of my son, he talked to him and helped him feel more calm, while he did the in office procedure. I'll be coming back to him for every Ear and Nose and throat issue my family has.

Such an incredible physician with a wonderful grasp of patient issues. He is a fabulous person and is so caring. He called me back repeatedly to make sure I was ok after my procedure. He is thorough, friendly, and so happy. He makes the entire family smile any time we go in. One of the best doctors I have ever known.
