in Tampa, FL |
Waited 1.5 hrs past my appointment time. I told them that I was not having symptoms at the present time and that maybe I should reschedule another time when symptoms were present. They staff assured me that it didn't matter. After waiting for 1.5 hrs the doctor cam in and within 3 minutes told me " I can't do anything if there are no symptoms present." They took my $60 copay and all I got was 1.5 hrs of my time wasted.

Excellent doctor & surgeon!!

Dr Alexander takes time with his patients & exercises concern with problem conditions. He did arthroscopic surgery on my right knee. He did a good job explaining the procedure. The surgery went very smoothly and recovery was fast. I had my lefty need done previously by another doctor, & this recovery was much smoother. I will be having a second surgery with Dr. Alexander arthroscopically on my right hip next month. He did very thorough in explaining my injury, the procedure & recovery.

I had my right knee replaced in November 2013. In less than 2 years my right hip went bad-I am unsure of why, however the excruciating pain I had from the knee surgery is making me find a different surgeon for my hip. Nice Doctor in general but I don't want to be an "ongoing" patient-I want the all of the issues done the first time.

I left a review without saying what Dr. Alexander repaired. My left shoulder had ongoing pain for a while before my wife finally talked me into getting it checked out. Dr. Alexander repaired several torn muscles and did some other cleaning. As I stated in my previous survey Dr. Alexander and his staff are the best and I recommend him highly.

I had a full hip replacement two years ago by Dr. Alexander. I have had no problems and was very satisfied with him and his staff. The rehabilitation facility there is also excellent. I would highly recommend this MD.

DR.Alexander is the best he takes great care of his patients and his patients come first.I meet doctor Alexander 7years ago when my p/c doctor sent me to see him about problems I was having with my wrist he looked over my MRI and took more tests and determined I needed surgery I had the surgery and I have yet to have anymore problems.And I have since had 2 more surgeries by other doctor's in his office and have had know problems and my recovery time was short.Also his staff is great.

He was direct and answered all my questions. He gave an adequate explanation of my condition and gave me his honest opinion and explained why he made that recommendation.
in Largo, FL |
I had two surgeries by a Doctor that waited too long to retire. Needless to say, there were problems. I have Factor 2 which makes any surgery tricky and also Osteoarthritis. With all that, Doctor Alexander took me on as a patient. 7 months ago he fixed the shoulder and recently my knee. I realize, I'll never be able to go jogging but .... I didn't jog before my surgery. He's a great Doctor and he puts up with my jokes. He'll probably get Carpal Tunnel by the time he's done with me.

I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander. He is caring and patient. He takes time to answer questions. His office staff is wonderful. The physical therapy department does a great job. I had great results from my surgery.

Dr. Alexander saw my mom after she broke her leg while hiking in Ga. He explained the surgery he would perform to both of us. After the surgery he called her at home to check up on her. She then started physical therapy with the knowledgeable PT staff. She slowly got stronger and started to walk better and finally returned to work. He discussed the option of having some of the hardware removed to alleviate pain. It was removed and her remaining pain went away. A great healthcare experience.
in Treasure Island, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr Alexander for the past 5 years. I have been extremely satisfied with my care. With MRI and physical therapy onsite, this is a truly great facility. I have never waited long for an appointment and best of all they are kept promptly. What really makes any medical practice is the staff. Each and every member of Dr Alexander?s staff is exceptional. From the front desk, to x-ray, to physical therapy, they all excel at their positions. He has gathered, what I believe to be

I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander to everyone. He is very patient during visits and very informative. I had a right hip replacement and it went better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Alexander and his staff were exceptional in their bedside manner and the care they gave. Dr. Alexander and his staff are highly skilled and just simply wonderful.
