Dr. Alexander's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Alexander "I am a board-certified family physician who has extensive experience in dealing with all stages of life from newborns to geriatrics. My special interests include adolescent medicine and women's health. I believe that good health begins with a healthy lifestyle so I will encourage a healthy diet, regular exercise, and positive lifestyle changes. In this rapidly changing health care environment, as a primary care provider, I would like to assist patients in taking an active role in managing their health and well-being. I believe regardless of how you believe healthcare should be paid for and delivered, in order to contain health care costs and fix health care disparities, we need to practice evidence based medicine. I will never prescribe a medication or order a test unless I think it is necessary and beneficial. "

Dr. Alexander Says:

It is an unfortunate situation that patients are allowed to say whatever they want about me in a public forum but I am limited by privacy laws from defending myself.   It is also unethical and of questionable legality for me to solicit positive reviews. I treat patients with kindness and respect and expect them to do the same for me and my staff.
