Mr Alexander was extremely professional in the initial consultation, the actual operation and the follow-up. I would have no hesitation in going back to Mr Alexander or Spire if necessary -particularly as the op was a great success. If I were a teacher it would be 10/10!

My day surgery for my eye op was very good. I was looked after by everyone. My surgeon, Mr Alexander, ensured I knew what was going to happen and looked after me extremely well. Thank you!

I have been more than delighted with the expert care I have received under Mr Alexander. It can be quite unsettling to realise that you need eye surgery of any kind. Mr Aelxander exhibited a very high degree of patient care. He was kind, gentle, honest, caring and always had time for questions. I felt totally safe in his care and he helped me to have confidence in my ability to cope with the procedures. I give him 100% for warm professional care and surgical skill. I would return to him, wherever possible, should I need future eye surgery.

I am pleased with the care that I received at the Spire Cambridge under Mr Alexander. Mr Alexander explained fully what would happen and allowed me to ask lots of questions that were answered. The follow-up care was also to a high standard. Thank you. I would highly recommend Mr Alexander.

For the first time in 73 years I found it necessary to privately engage the surgical skills of Mr Alexander to close Macular Hole in my right eye. This was achieved five weeks after surgery. During my treatment from the initial consultation through to to discharge the service provided by Mr Alexander and his staff and the services provided by Cambridge Lea Hospital have been exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Alexander and his team.

I was delighted with the results of my cataract surgery and impressed with the level of care I received from everyone involved in the process. That includes my surgeon, Mr Alexander, the nursing staff, receptionists and the lady who brought me a sandwich. All my (frequent!) questions were answered and the operations themselves carried out impeccably as were the follow-ups. As an overall score for the experience, I'd give it my new visual acuity score: 6/5

Prior to surgery, my vision was in a sorry state. Now it is vastly improved and I only need reading glasses. The attention and follow up that I received from Mr Alexander and his team was excellent and I would recommend them to anyone and would use their expertise if needed in the future.
