My heroe , thank you Dr. Michael Alexander for Savingb my life, God bless you.
in Chatsworth, CA |
He saved my wife's life after she suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage in November of 2013. He calls my wife the miracle patient, but it takes someone who creates miracles in the first place to put a title on his patient. He is without question, an OUTSTANDING surgeon.
