Mark Alexander, MD, CAQ

Primary Care Sports Medicine Physician


As a former athlete, I try to put myself in the position of the patient. I understand what it means to be held out of the sports they love and try to do everything to get them back as soon as possible. In addition, I have three kids of my own and I understand what parents are going through when their kids are injured. I try to let them know what I would do if it were my own child.
