I was referred to Dr. Alexander after suffering from lower back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome for many years. Dr. Alexander and his staff worked with me to treat both conditions without surgery and also referred me to physical therapy. I am feeling so much better and would highly recommend his medical practice.

Dr. Alexander helped my back tremendously! The staff was very friendly and made me feel at home. I was so happy I didn't have to go to a hospital for any procedures! I had a great experience at the Non-Surgical Spine Center and I would definitely recommend it to my family and friends!

It was wonderful to find a doctor willing to listen and take my concerns seriously. The staff and Dr. Alexander have been amazing to work with. They were not only able to alleviate the spine pain I was having but also refer me to other doctors to help with symptoms unrelated to the spine. I would highly recommend the Non-Surgical Spine Center. My only regret is not finding them sooner!

The Doctor and staff are always pleasant and caring. I've received huge benefit in coming here to treat my back pain. When I first came to the office I could not stand, sit, or sleep comfortably because of my back pain. Now that the pain is so significantly reduced, nothing is holding me back from living my life.

Dr. Alexander and staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable during my visits. Very knowledgeable! Came in with severe sciatica pain from a herniated disc. Dr. Alexander and staff were able to calm the pain and resolve my issue. Highly recommended!!! Very appreciative for all that they did!
