Doctor Alexander Magdi is the worse doctor I ever seen in my life I do not believe his 5 stars. After I paid a total of 12,000 for a surgery and a few other visit that he charge me to see him, I had to do the same surgery after 8 months because his work was not done right, and the other doctor that did the same surgery again had to fix what doctor Alexander done, please believe me you are better off going to a real doctor

I had a great experience with Dr.Alexander. Fearful of surgery for many years, he made me feel at ease and comfortable with my situation. Pre-op and surgery was a success. Didn't feel a thing before and after surgery. Dr. Alexander is the best.

I was in so much pain,wasnt able to work for a month.Doctors who kept treating my hemrroids only as an infection i was tired so i found Dr.A who specializes in hemrroids,i was happy to see him on my first visit he knew right away it was more than an infection. Finally,found a doctor who knew what had to be done next! Got outpatient surgery same week. No hassle!i am over joyed and right after surgery i felt so much better!no pressure on my stomach or pain on my bottom! Was able to sit w/o crying!
