After hearing my final diagnosis "you have cancer", I went numb. My worst fears confirmed after burying my father 4 months earlier. I could not believe my ears. While I was sitting there trying to digest my reality, Dr. Alexander was explaining the next steps slowly, thoroughly, and carefully. Her explanations were not clinical, condescending or detached. Dr. Alexander spoke to me as if i were a personal friend and broke down very complex terms and procedures to a level i was completely able to digest. Although, while i watched and listened, feeling detached the whole time. I realized Dr. Alexander had already meticulously planned out every calculating step towards getting me cancer free. I had to deal with pulling myself together to tell everyone i know, she had already scheduled and planned the operation and preparing me for the next procedure. She told me this we were going to get through; my life was not going to end over this diagnosis. Before i even left the room it dawned on me that whatever she told me. I believe her 100% because she had been through this numerous times. Because of her responses and numerous pre-procedural steps and tests to confirm her diagnosis, i knew she was armed with every last ounce of detail to preform a successful operation. Even during the operation she took numerous biopsies of lymph nodes and other areas i cannot specifically recall so she could decide our next plan of strategic action against my cancer. So when people asked me if i wanted a second opinion about my diagnosis because they knew a great doctor, I confidently within the next breath said, " No thank you." because i believed in my own great doctor. Everyday i was in the hospital i was visited early by Dr. Alexander. Even on the weekend! She not only checked my chart to make sure everything was okay but she would also shoot the breeze with me. The other nurses and nurses' attendants spoke very highly of how well Dr. Alexander treats her patients. "she is very meticulous about the care she gives each and every patient. I am extremely blessed to have Dr. Alexander as my specialist. I never doubted that i was getting the top of the line care due to her experience with my health issue, but i also received a rare gift, a doctor who also has the talent to really connect with her patients and treat them with such humanity. I hope you will allow this gifted person to touch your lives as well. by the way..... I am CANCER FREE!!!!

I was referred to Dr. Alexander by my niece. The day of my appointment I was impressed by the office. Its atmosphere put me at ease immediately. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Alexander was extremely polite and soft spoken. She herself performed my routine exam in addition to sending me in for a series of tests. She is very thorough in her examinations, collecting a complete family history in addition to past medical history. Dr. Alexander was patient as she thoroughly answered all questions I might have as she sat me down to discuss my test results and possible medical options that would be best for me. Dr. Alexander looks at all possible angles of every problem you might have. In the end surgery was what I needed. In addition to prepping me for my surgery she took into account my weight issues, sending me to a cardiologist to make sure my heart could withstand surgery. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Alexander was a calming presence; holding my hand in the operation room telling me everything was to be okay. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a thorough, polite, and hands on gynecologist. Dr. Alexander is a true "professional" with a sweet demeanor and the best doctor I have had. There are not enough stars to rate Dr. Alexander who is a gifted and wonderful doctor and a phenomenal woman.
Everything you want in a doctor is exactly what Dr. Alexander is. She is very knowledgeable, very confident in what she practices, very personable, friendly, kindhearted , she puts her patients first, and best of all she is professional. What more do you need in doctor she is the whole package plus the customer service is great. I felt very comfortable coming to the office. I have to say the Dr. Alexander is my favorite doctor of all time and is by far the best around. She is very thorough with her exams and that's why it takes a long time to get in, but I rather wait a little longer and get a full exam then a doctor just going through the motions and not take their time. Dr. Alexander is also very knowledgeable and she answers every question to the best of her knowledge and if she can't answer it right that second she comes back to it later and gives you an answer. That's also why I go to her because she takes the time to get to know you and the customer service is very good. She is the best doctor that I have ever gone to. I really like this doctor and yes she is professional and can dress! But mostly the idea of going to a doctor like Dr. Alexander who is one of kind and an extraordinary one too . The office is a beautiful Victorian mansion well furnished.
