Initially, I was hesitate as meeting a new doctor. Dr. Alexander made me cdsfeel extremely comfortable on my first visit. Not knowing what to expect I was pleased with the first visit. Last but not least, I have endured relief from the surgery and having a full recovery. If you are looking for a doctor who is passionate , considerate, and honest this is the doctor for you.
