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.

    really takes his time with the patients, he's always on time and somehow spends so much quality time with patients. he repeats and summarizes what was gone over during that appointment. I've worked with a lot of doctors and their is no comparison. he goes above and beyond. I would recommend him to every person I know.

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 11/01/2020, Dr. Alexander has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
