in Miami, FL |
It is my pleasure, as many other people have previously done, to very highly commend Dr. Alex as well as his P.A. Debbie, and the entire great office staff for the excellent quality of care that they all provide to their patients. Dr. Alex is an incredibly trustworthy and reliable professional who obviously really loves his career and demonstrates his vast extensive expertise at all times. He recently performed wrist surgery on me and I am practically able to use my hand as well as before. J.SJ.
