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.

The provider was present and attentive. I appreciated that he sat face to face with me rather than hovering over a computer while we talked. Simply being in a doctor's office can induce even a little bit of stress which makes listening and retaining information difficult. By speaking slowly and deliberately, he allowed me time to digest what he was saying. I've never had a provider take such time and care to explain medication, policies, etc. to me. The provider was quick to respond to test results and to my messages in MyChart.

In over 55 years, I have never met another doctor with such compassion, care, concern, and kindness. Cannot stop telling people how truly wonderful he is. He came into the room having read my chart, fully aware of some recent test results (mammogram biopsy) and test results not yet received (pap smear). He listens, doesn't rush the conversation, and is compassionate beyond belief.

Dr. Alexander is the best! He is so caring and willing to listen to my health concerns never dismissing the numerous examples that I give him. He kindly offers options for my health issues inviting me into the decision making process. Last, I appreciated his sincerity in complimenting me on meeting a health goal. With a genuine interest to know, he asked me how I lowered my A1C from a 7.9 to a 7.0. His care and concern is a significant motivation for me. Also, I never feel like his is rushed or needs/wants to be some where else.
