    We’re working with Dr Alexandrou on my son’s severe reflux. And he’s always trying to understand what the child experiences getting into the account everything the parents say. We’re also happy with the specialists Dr Alexandrou recommends.

    I have visited Dr. Alexandrou a couple of times for my infant daughter and I plan Dr. Alexandrou to be my daughter's physician for the years to come. I appreciate that he has been very thorough and very careful with my daughter's rather uncommon condition. He is always very approachable, explains everything with plain language and helps you understand the situation. You will feel in really good hands with him.
