My experience in working with Dr. Alex has been more than outstanding. For the first time in a long time, I feel cared for as a patient. Dr. Alex genuinely cares about my health and well being. She takes time to dig deeper than the surface issues, even when they may not pertain to the original purpose of the appointment. I leave her office feeling like I have a true advocate and bright physician in my corner, rooting for me and my overall health. Dr. Alex will not only help you resolve your current needs but she will see to it that your future is a healthier one.” -Meredith T
I found Dr. Alex after having been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease of unknown origin, in which my symptoms included a low grade temperature, pain in my back, chest, hips and knees. I was unable to get in and out of a chair without severe pain. Walking was difficult and I found myself unable to work. I was put on a regime of steroids to begin with and later, stronger immune suppressing drugs, with serious side effects that left me feeling extremely tired and which did little to relieve my symptoms. Each time I tried to get off these drugs my symptoms returned. After seeing two general practitioners and four specialists (two rheumatologists, an orthopedic surgeon and a spine specialist) and having no accurate diagnosis and no diminishment of symptoms, I decided I had to take matters into my own hands. I began reading books on autoimmune diseases and alternative healthcare. Most of the information I gathered suggested a strict diet regime along with supplements. Also mentioned, in some of the books, was functional medicine. And that’s how I found Dr. Alex, my functional medical doctor. She literally saved my life. After just a few months under Dr. Alex’s care, my symptoms began to subside and I was able to return to a normal work routine and begin exercising again. Dr. Alex is thoughtful and treats each patient’s case with individuality. She is curious, smart and caring. I never feel rushed during appointments with her. I have my life back! I am working in my studio, riding bicycles, walking and am just generally comfortable in my daily life. All thanks to Dr. Alex’s medical care. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had not found her.” -Martha G
Dr. Alex has been a wonderful and supportive doctor. I work in medical sales and have been calling on doctors as part of my job for 20 years. I was surprised when I got diagnosed with an autoimmune condition as that does not run prevalently in my family and was not comfortable taking the immunosuppressive medications or with the explanation “that I would always have this and I could only treat the symptoms”. I knew there had to be a cause and the underlying problem was what I wanted to address, but none of the conventional doctors wanted to have these discussions (and I get it because unfortunately they don’t get paid to talk, only to prescribe toxic drugs and then manage these drugs side effects!). So I began reading about making changes to my diet and lifestyle and was searching for a holistic practitioner that could assist me in managing these changes. Thankfully I finally found Dr. Alex, who offers a very reasonable rate, while helping me address the underlying cause of my disease. She got me on the right track to reversing my autoimmune symptoms and getting me the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. It continues to be a journey, but I’ve never felt better in my life.” -Dawn L
I have referred friends to Dr. Alex. People working with Dr. Alex should know that they have a critical thinking problem solver who seeks and treats core underlying problems and does not just manage symptoms. After seeing traditional doctors for years, who were content with giving pills for symptoms, Dr. Alex took the time, a lot of time to gather all possible information, research, think through all the data to care for me. I got the impression she spent time caring for me, even when I wasn’t with her. I am healthier, and more whole that has affected so many areas of my life, thanks to her skills and compassion.” -Roxanne T
When you work with Dr Alex, you are working with a true advocate for your health. For me, the best thing about her is that she listens. She listens and responds with a scientific approach that is open minded enough to use a wide variety of techniques to help you, all of which are based on the best science available. If you are open minded, if you really want to take charge of your health, and if you’re not afraid to try something new, Dr Alex will help you navigate those waters to the healthy lifestyle you desire.” – Paul B.
