    Dr. Alexander will be my permanent doctor for any future hand & elbow issues. Couldn't of asked for a better physician as a whole.
    in Marietta, GA |
    Very positive. Concerned about my problem and clear as to the course of action he recommended we follow to address it.
    in Atlanta GA |
    Friendly and thorough
    in Marietta, GA |
    He has performed Dupuytren's Contracture surgery twice - once on each hand and involving both the palm and multiple fingers. His surgical skill is excellent and there have been no re-occurrences or complications. And the physical therapy staff is excellent in returning the hand to normal function.
    in Acworth, GA |
    Dr. Alexander took great care of me and resolved my wrist issue after 2 other doctors couldn't. Thank you Dr. Alexander!
    in Dallas, GA |
    Dr. Alexander was very thorough and made certain I understood everything regarding my procedure. His facility and staff are all top notch. If you need hand, arm, shoulder treatment, they are great folks!
    in Rome, GA |
    Outstanding surgeon!!! Dr. Alexander has treated two of my family members. Both sustained significant injuries to their hands. My son-in-law lost 4 fingers in an accident. Dr. Alexander was able to reattach all of them. My son-in-law has full use of that hand today. Our story is nothing short of a miracle. We are so thankful for Dr. Alexander and Dr. Seiler!!
    in Atlanta, GA |
    Dr. Alexander is EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!
    in Villa Rica, GA |
    Dr. Alexander was recommended to me by the therapy department at Piedmont Hospital. He operated on me in September, 2015 to repair a torn bicep muscle and rotator cuff. The procedure went smoothly and now in mid-February, 2016 I have been released from further physical rehab therapy after five months of satisfactory and even enjoyable twice-a-week visits to the Accel Physical Therapy center in the Mirror Lake shopping center, Villa Rica, Georgia as fully recovered.
    in Jasper, GA |
    Unlike most busy doctors, Dr Alexander was extremely caring and attentive to any issues I had after surgery. I am very pleased with the outcome of surgery for complete rotator cuff and bicep tears. The group also has their own PT department which is nice because all they work on is arms. I would not go anywhere else having been treated by this most excellent doctor !!!
    Marietta, GA |
    I began seeing Dr Alexander for a rotator cuff injury, after my previous doctor stopped taking my insurance just as surgery was being scheduled. Dr Alexander picked up the case, and quickly and efficiently took care of the shoulder. He is pleasant, clear, and down to earth. The only improvement that I could suggest, would be physical or virtual anatomy models to explain the problem and what was done during surgery.
