What People Say About Dr. Mathew Alexander, MD

I cannot explain just how grateful I am to Dr. Alexander. I suffered for years with excruciating pain on my lower back down my right leg. I had not slept on my own bed in at least 2 years. I handed my life over to him and he has given it back to me 99% better than it was before. I had my surgery March of this year and I can honeslty say that I do not feel any of the pain I had before. He has given me my life back to enjoy with my family once again. I highly recommend him.

In 2010, my husband fell 12’ through a ceiling, landing on his head on a concrete floor. His neck was broken in 4 places, as well as other life-threatening injuries. Dr. Matthew Alexander performed life-saving neurosurgery, and after 59 days in 3 hospitals, he made a miraculous recovery. Five months later, Dr. Alexander removed a tumor at the junction of C1-C2, and 7 months after that, he removed another tumor from around his brain stem, in an extremely difficult place to operate. Nine months later, he required lower back surgery -- his 4th neurosurgery within 2 years, performed by Dr. Alexander. In 2016, I had a spinal cord injury, and Dr. Alexander successfully performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at C4-C7. Dr. Alexander is an experienced, super-dedicated neurosurgeon, and works late/long hours to accommodate EVERYONE! .We would NEVER consider going to anyone else. He saved our quality of life multiple times, and we will be forever grateful!

I am a 68 yr old female. Doctor Alexander has saved my life. I was in a wheelchair this time last year. He performed my surgery and cleaned out a deadly spinal infection, I was in absolute agony when he saved me. There are not enough words to express the kindness brains and talent this man has been Blessed with. There is no other Doctor better than him. I am walking, infection free, and just about pain free. The office and staff are wonderful and you can expect a wait. All good things are worth waiting for. God Bless this man.

Dr. Alexander has performed surgery for spinal compression fractures on my 92 year old sister. The fractures cause excruciating pain and Dr. Alexander has alleviated the pain. He is very caring and takes the time to show and explain the procedures that will be done. You might have to wait, but the wait is worth it if you will get relieve from pain.

Superior neurosurgeon. Had a great surgical experience and recovery was quick. This was the second surgery in my neck. The previous was in 1997 where three disks were removed. I was suffering from extreme headaches. Now I am free of the headaches caused from my neck.

I had lower back surgery with Dr Alexander in early 2018. He is a very good and thorough surgeon. Like he told me he can’t take all my pain away. He did alleviate the pain. He always does his best to tend to my back pain. I would recommend him to anyone that needs back surgery. N Bueno

After 4 hours I was 4th in line then the staff said it was best to call in at the time of your appointment, then they will call me back 30 minutes before the doctor can see me, they will call me back in Ingleside to come back and see Dr Alexander - I quickly saw one of his associates and when he showed me my x-ray I couldn't see the fracture - left and never went back to him Other patients said he sometimes orders pizza at 8pm for those still waiting
