Patient Comments (6)
Pompano Beach, FL |
I waited 3 hours to be seen for a first appointment and sat for 5 minutes with the doctor to be told that I would get better eventually. I was told absolutely nothing constructive and left with more back pain then I went in with because of having to stand and sit on the ground outside his office because there was no space in the waiting room. He may be a good surgeon but his first impression was horrendous.

Have had cervical and lumbar surgery by Dr Alexander. I was beyond skeptical but he assured me all would be fine. Alas it was incredible my back is like new after one month and my neck is getting there it's only been a week and a half.
