What People Say About Dr. Vladimir Alexander, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

It takes time with any Dr. to feel comfortable, but Dr Alexander was wonderful. He explained my injury, what would need to be done. He follows up, his staff is amazing. Unhappy people write bad reviews. This Doctor and his staff should be perfect tens. Did my meniscus and was right on the money about how long the knee would last. Therapy right there, all in one makes life easier. Only Doctor I trust. Honestly.

Very rude. Went there for bursitis of knee. Treated me with disrespect. Told me in the short time I was there I had ‘mashed’ on me knee and I was causing the bursitis from that. I had touched the kneecap with my hand! I am in medical field and would never be so rude to a patient. No confidence in this md

This Dr. found the problem and repaired my shoulder when 3-4 others had no clue as to what could be wrong. He didn't hesitate to do an exploratory surgery and what he found was hair raising. The damage had gone on for so long, as other Drs kept telling me they didn't see a problem, that even he was stunned to see the extreme conditions that he alone even bothered to look for.

My experience while at Alexander Orthopedic Associates overall was an pleasant experience. The ladies at the front desk greeted all patients at check in and the back office staff were efficient with bringing me back to exam room and getting xrays completed. Dr. Alexander was able to answer all my questions pertaining to my knee pain and gave me hope that he could make it better and more manageable to live with.

Dr. Alexander is an awesome physician. He is kind, caring and compassionate. His surgical skills are impeccable. I would know, since I have had several surgeries performed through out the years. His office staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Alexander and his practice to everyone.

Got a call 30 minutes before hubby's app't. saying they had not received the referral and had to cancel. I explained he was already on the way, please give me a chance to call the PCP and have it resent. They turned him away as soon as he arrived without even bothering to make a call or check a fax which is just not respectful of his time. After confirming with the PCP the referral had been refaxed 3 times, I called again to confirm receipt and the staffer was rude and dismissive . . .

It's been 1 1/2 years since my last of 2 operations on the same hip. it is my understanding that the first hip replacement was replaced because of the wrong size hip prosthetic was used. After much pain over 3 months, a revised hip replacement was done. I am still not pain free...Dr. Alexander dismissed me after 5 months, even tho I complained of pain. So I would never be pro HR. My experience with Dr. Alexander was not a good experience.He was nice & courteous until he wasn't.

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.

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.

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.

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.
