We Have The Best Patients!
“This was the first time I had to undergo surgery. Dr. Alexander was great, told me what to expect, put me at ease and answered all of my questions. The surgical experience itself was excellent, and from start to finish it only took 2 hours. His care and concern for his patients is evident. Overall, a great experience.”
