Yes, Dr Alexander was the first doctor that I saw sanitize his stethoscope. This little measure indicates that he cares about his patients . The staff and patients can also be protected by the office installing Ultra Violet lights in the air handling systems. This would sanitize the air for everyone in the building.

Only giving a 4 because it's the only time we have seen him. However, the staff, nurses and Dr were all very polite, professional and attentive. The wait to be seen was not long at all. I'm sure after another visit I'll be comfortable to give a 5

I have been a patient of Dr Alexander for over 5 yrs. He is always professional and takes the time to explain the findings in each test he runs. If he feels that you need a second opinion he does not hesitate to refer you to another doctor. Dr Thomas Alexander is Tops in my book.

My third visit in the last 6 months. My personal opinion of Dr. Alexander and his (Bedside Manner) was so so at best. This visit has changed my mine he was extremely pleasant and cordial. Yes I would recommend his practice moving forward.

Going to a cardiologist for the first time can be concerning and scary. Dr. Alexander and his staff could not have been better; they were quick to get the exam started and they were excellent at explaining what was occurring.
