About Me

As a family physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in ambulatory care and have a particular interest in health promotion and preventive medicine.

I am proud to be a family physician. I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my patients and strive to provide personalized health care.

I received my undergraduate and medical education here at The Ohio State University and appreciate the opportunity to teach the next generation of physicians who are attending The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two sons.

My care provider is the best! I was my grateful that when he suggested that we would work together to lower my A1C and not to beat myself up over what's happened.

he had excellent bedside manner

Reviewed on Nov 26, 2017

I went to see him because I had a little bump on my tongue that appeared a few days before. He told me I had to see a specialist because he could not identify what it was. The day after, I spit out the little bump: it was the shell of a popcorn. He failed to identify the problem and I almost had to receive extra care for nothing.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/26/2018, Dr. Alexander has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
