I was new to the area. Dr Alexander was recommended to me. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Dr Alexander was very personable and we were in sync regarding my treatment. Wait time wasn’t any longer than other doctors that I use. She spent all the time that I needed to review my symptoms and illness. She wasn’t rushed, I appreciated that.

Extremely rude to patients by being consistently EXTREMELY late - over an hour - when she is clearly in the office but taking her own sweet time.

Waited in room for 90 minutes before Dr. Alexander walked in. Good personality but poor choice of treatments for my symptoms.

1st visit she was pleasant & seemed helpful; but had to wait 4 hours. As I saw her frequently for a health condition...it became worse! She was rude when I asked questions; she put me on a bunch of meds that were counter productive; and I was hospitalized in which she insulted my mother & myself. The longest wait was 6 hours; mind you I always had an appointment. I was experiencing severe medical issues & when I expressed concern about my health or asked questions; she belittled me. Horrible!
