Dr Alexander is always kind and concerned. Encouraged me to message her directly on portal! She is so prompt on responding back in a timely manner. Makes a patient feel more comfortable knowing their physician can be reached, and directly communicate to them, Dr Alexander is exactly what a physician should be. Kind, very knowledgeable,understanding , so easy to communicate my concerns to. I am a long time RN who managed an ED and Critical care unit. I have seen a lot in my day, good and bad. Believe me , Dr. Alexander is one of the good ones.
