Patient Comments (6)
in Richmond, VA |
Very competent surgeon. Dr. Alexander gave me life back. I was pain free within 48 hours of surgery. Two months later, I am 100% healthy.
It is a shame that a doctor's reputation can be put in jeopardy by the inept members of his staff, but that is most certainly the case here. Dr. Alexander couldn't be better but all members of his office and nursing staff are rude, lazy, and overall burdens to his practice. I requested medical records a month in advance for an appointment and they couldn't manage to get them to the office in time and suggested my only alternative was driving to Georgia to pick them up from a 3rd party provider.

Dr. Alexander has the best bed side manners with his patient and their family. He cares about his patient and explains everything from beginning to end. I would recommend him to anyone. His knowledge of how to make you better comes from really caring about you and the love of his profession. Thank you Dr. Alexander,

He is amazing and has great bedside manner. He listens well. He made sure I understood what was going on. He showed that he cared and that I understood my options, as well as how my decision would effect me and my life.

After a year of various workups to determine my calf and hamstring pain etiology, Dr Alexander saw something that other specialists missed on my various MRIs, Xrays & CT scans. So glad I trusted Healthgrades to find the right Neurologist!

I would definitely recommend Doctor Peter Alexander to anyone needing neurosurgey. He has previously operated on me twice - once of my neck with Doctor Van, and once on my lower back. I recently had a MRI and Dr. Alexander stated that I did not need surgery, so I have been getting shots in my lower back, and are definitely helping. Dr. Stephen Long gives me the shots in my back. He is a true professional and respect him to the highest. Ronald Germaine
