The doctor was fine, but don't bother trying to set up an appointment with ZocDoc. All they do is cancel on you.

Went to the Auburndale office which is on the second floor of a strip mall. Not too large but fully equipped to handle ENT appointments. The whole staff was quick and friendly. Very good experience.

The first appointment I had was very rushed. The Dr was racing through the office trying to leave. I was sent for further tests and when I called to speak with the Dr regarding the results I was told the Dris just too busy to return any calls. I then made a follow up appointment which was a waste of time. Nothing was done. It could have been handled over the phone. I assume they just wanted to collect an additional copay and bill my insurance. The office staff are not professional at all. They are busy talking about other patients.

The office didn't have my referral and made me call my primary doctor which delayed things quite a bit. The doctor did not have good bedside manner at all, he was nice but didn't actually explain anything he was doing. Heimmediately started sticking things in my ear and up my nose without telling me what was happening, which was a bit unnerving.

I had impacted ear wax and he was fast and really nice. They did a hearing test and everything was fine. The people who work in this office are really nice. The only thing I would recommend having a turn offyour cell phone sign in the waiting room. Two people had rather loud cell phones that kept ringing. Otherwise this is a great office and I'm definitely going back.

Very good visit. He took care of the problem. However he wasn't very gentle when it came to removing wax build up. He did cause me some pain. He is very pleasant but very fast and does not give you time to ask questions if need be.

Dr. Alexander personally is a good doctor. I do wish he would rush a little bit less in visitations. He's always seeming to be on the run. What made my experience a terrible one, are the receptionist. They have canceled myappointments COUNTLESS times, made mistakes on my appt times. I was on my way to my appt THREE times and they canceled on me. They even lied and told me that my mother told them I wasn't going to make it. When I have a recording that says otherwise. The last offense that did it for me is when I was scheduled to see a Voice therapist, they made a mistake with my appointment and now i'm on a waiting list. (They also made a mistake and scheduled me for a hearing test!! I was there for vocal nodes. After telling them various times they finally admitted that they made ANOTHER mistake.) This was the last straw, this office needs to do better. I've given them so many chances and have been burned each time. I'm seeing another doctor.

I went into the office for two problems. One that i was concerned about turned out not to be a big deal and one that i wasn't concerned about turned into additional testing which I'm glad he discovered. The office calledto confirm my appointment an hour before the appointment, which i thought was odd. They also requested my Insurance ID # on that call. I didn't have any problems with insurance once i got to the office.

Was disappointed that after months of suffering, my visit only lasted 3 minutes at best. A CT scan was ordered and office staff called to tell me it was normal. No further recommendations, no plan for me. Just continue dealing with my pain, I guess.

I got to the office a few minutes before my scheduled appointment. The office administration wasn't too friendly. Not really mean, but not extremely welcoming either. As I was filling out my paper work, Dr. Alexander came out to ask oneof the staff something. I guess she did not understand what he was saying, and he took a sarcastic tone and was kind of abrasive toward her. I kind of took that as a red flag, but finished filling out my paper work and was eventually called in to see the Dr. He introduced himself to me, and asked me why I was visiting. Half way through my response, he shouted out to one of the staff to come in the room, cutting me off and seemingly uninterested with my response. I guess there was supposed to be an instrument in the room that wasn't there, so he asked her in a very condescending manner to make sure that this instrument was in the room the next time. At this point, I thought it was very unprofessional the way he was speaking to his staff and it made me feel uneasy. He looked up my nose and cleaned out my ears, but did not inform my what he was doing while he was doing it. Kind of like just shoving instruments in my ear and nose. I am already used to doing this with all of my allergy problems, but for someone who is new this can be a bit off putting. After he was done, he told me that I needed sinus surgery. He didn't really seem concerned with any of the medicine I was taking, didn't offer me any new medication in the mean time, and didn't seem interested in renewing any of my current allergy and asthma medication either. Overall, the visit felt rushed and I had to stop him from leaving the room for being done with a couple of follow up questions I had; he seemed uninterested with answering my questions and gave me brief, quick, generic responses. The doctor he recommended I see for the surgery was out of my network, so that wasn't any help either. Maybe he was just having a bad day or behind on schedule, but I left this visit uncomfortable and unsatisfied and would not recommend this doctor to anyone that asked. Hopefully, reviews like this will clue him in to improving his bedside manner and taking more time to see what could be done for his patients.

Doctor Alexander and his staff were awesome problem solvers!! Friendly and empathetic people who found a solution to our serious problem!...ELEVATOR OUT OF ORDER!! Pistilli management (owners? and building managers?) however were totallyunaware of who makes use of the offices in their building. The elevator was out of order!! Sign on elevator door said elevator would be out of order until 12am ?? AM?? should maybe have been PM?? Anyway, at 1245PM it was still not working and as we left at 130 it was STILL out of order.. Doctor Alexander has an office on the third floor and my mother who was the patient is confined to a wheelchair. I had called prior to appointment to make sure the office was wheelchair accessible. UNACCEPTABLE from management when their tenants are doctors who have sick patients who cannot walk up the stairs. SHAME ON YOU PISTILLI AND THANKS SO MUCH TO DR ALEXANDER AND HIS STAFF WHO SAVED THE DAY.
