    I had acute appendicitis last week. Dr. Alexander was my surgeon. He did a great job on me. My recovery was very satisfactory. He is also a very pleasant, patient and considerate surgeon.
    in Los Angeles, CA |
    Dr Alexander was my surgeon for a perforated bowel - a life threatening condition. I was on my feet four hours after surgery and home the day after that. Amazing. Dr Alexander has been great. He explains things in a clear common sense manner and has made this scary situation much easier on me and my family. My condition requires a second surgery and there is no one else I will let cut on me. Thank you Dr Alexander for saving my life - literally.
    in La Puente, CA |
    Amazing surgeon and staff!! I had small intestine ressection and was in and out of the hospital in no time! I cant thank Dr. Alexander enough for the amazing job he did for me. I have had this kind of surgery before and this surgery had less pain and faster recovery time. Thank you so much Dr. Alexander

    I needed to have my gallbladder removed. I had put it off for years and delt with the painful episodes my large gallstones caused. I was nervous about the procedure because I am obese and a friend had just gone through a nightmare with her gallbladder surgery. Dr. Alexander spent time with me discussing the procedure in detail. He made me aware of any complications that might arise due to my weight. The surgery went great, I went home the same day. I never needed pain meds. I did well.

    Kayla got me right in and Dr Alexander saw me right away when others offered appointments weeks down the road. He made the diagnosis right away then gave me three options for treatment. I chose the least invasive procedure offered, which was a quick in and out minor operation. As promised recovery was within 72 hours. This doctor is easy going, funny, and no nonsense. He uses a lot of analogies to make you understand your current problem and what he proposes to do about it. Thank you Dr A.

    Lisa M. I cannot thank Dr. Alexander and his staff enough. After two weeks of pain and visits to urgent care, my primary physician, and an ER, I brought my test results to Dr. Alexander. He made time for an emergency visit, and let me know the reason for my severe pain was a faulty gallbladder. He had an excellent bedside manner and took the time to answer every question I had. I work full time and am pursuing my PhD, and was in such pain I could not work. Dr. Alexander (and the fabulous nurse,

    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

    in Carson, Ca. |
    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.
    in Rosemead, Ca |
