I have visited with this doctor at least five times and had to wait one hour beyond my scheduled time and once two hours. On my January 17th, 2014 visit was to consent and confirm my surgery date for February 18th, 2014. After waiting 45 minutes beyond my 11:30 am appointment, I realized that I forgot my wallet and couldn't pay my $15.00 co-payment. I asked a staff person, which appeared to be her unprofessional mother, if I could call in my credit card number when I reach back home which is 45 minutes away or mail a check payment back, and she asked if I could go home, get my money and come back, which was a slap in the face. Furthermore, I was told that Dr. Alexander said she would not be able to see me due to me not having my co-payment. At this point, I couldn't believe that this doctor would jeopardize the potential of earning more money to performing my partial hysterectomy surgery next month. In my opinion, Dr. Alexander is money hungry, truly broke and is allowing her judgement to jeopardize her business. Dr. Alexander had me scheduled for two procedures that I did not agree to or authorized her to do which is very scary. The hospital surgical nurse called me to do my pre-op work and ask health related questions etc. and I declined. When a doctor potentially schedule a more invasive surgery and attempt to get an insurance approval is clearly insurance fraud. On January 17, 2014 while in her office, I asked Dr. Alexander prior to leaving her office, why did she schedule me improperly for those two procedures and she stated that she wanted to reserve me a surgery spot and the procedure could be modified. I have never had a doctor to inappropriately schedule a surgery without the correct procedure. I also expressed how I felt regarding how I was treated by her staff and that I was considering looking for another doctor and her response was if I wanted to find another doctor, then go ahead. At this point, I had decided that this doctor isn't as competent as her website and experience states or compassionate. Additionally, she did an in office uterus biopsy on a prior visit and neglected to give me the results. I had to call and leave message to please get back to me with my results. I truly regret ever allowing this doctor to evaluate my current condition. I do not recommend anybody to go to this doctor, especially cancer patients.

The service at Dr. Alexanders office is very warm and they take care of you. My opinion about Dr. Alexander she is the best, and she really cares about her patients, she do not mind answering your question, she is very patient, and kind. I always tell Dr. Alexander to take care of herself, because we all need her, like I said before she is the Best, once you go to her you will see.

I'm a bit upset with the service I received from this office. I'm new to the area and decided to see Dr. Alexander a few months ago based on her online reviews. After my exam, I was given an 800 number to call two weeks after my appointment to receive my results. When I called the number I was told that the results of my ultrasound had discovered follicular cysts on my ovaries. The problem with this is- I didn't get an ultrasound during my visit. Obviously, the results belonged to someone else. No problem! This type of mix-up could certainly take place. I called the office to see if I could find out my results and was told by someone in the office that they would have to speak with the doctor and call me back with my results. I never received that call. I then called back a few weeks later to be told the same thing. I need to check with the doctor and I will give you a call back with the results. After a few weeks and no phone call, I decided to call one more time. I was assured that I would receive a phone call with my results. Here I am, 48 hours later and I still have no results. I simply want the results that I paid for and I'll be a happy camper.
