    in Chelmsford, MA |
    Dr. Alexander for sure is professionally competent, also very welcoming, and excellent at explaining the diagnosis and what decisions the patient needs to make. He doesn't push patients to make decisions that involve surgery. He explains, then patiently waits until the patient is ready to make a comfortable decision. He has been our family ophthalmologist for my wife, daughters, and myself for more than 22 years. I value his sense of humor that makes office visits something to look forward to.
