Philosophy Of Care

I chose to practice in OB/GYN because I care deeply about women and the health issues they experience at each stage of their lives. My goal is to provide the evidence-based standard of care, delivered with compassion, to earn each patient’s trust, and to form deep patient relationships through my care and our shared decision making. Any given day I see women from their teen years, to expectant mothers through grandmothers in the 80s. One of my greatest joys is in relationships lasting through multiple generations of a family, a mom referring her daughter, and then her grand-daughter. I work to earn this trusted confidence every day, whether I’m delivering a new family member, performing surgery, providing preventive care, or advocating for their well-being.

The doctors exam was quick and painless and she spent time explaining my test results and next steps. She was very kind and upbeat and informative.

Dr. Alexander listened to my concerns about my health, offered suggestions and solutions and wants the best care for me.

Provider told me to get bloodwork without 1)confirming I was fasting (I was not) or 2)Even asking if I had been fasting. This is not standard of care. Breast exam seemed distracted and a bit sub-par in comparison to other physicians who seek to exam deeper into breast tissue. As a first time visitor, provider did not seek to establish any report - definitely a "going through the motions" which is disappointing anytime going to a doctor that deals with such intimate/vulnerable healthcare.
