Patient Stories

Dr. Alexander has a great bedside manner. When you come in for your initial consultation, he’s engaged, very thoughtful; he makes you feel like you are the most important person at that time, you don’t get that with most doctors. Post-op he’s at your bedside right away and lets you know what happened. He’s very upbeat, very positive. Having the office, the surgery center and the rehab under one roof streamlines the process completely. As a result, my recovery went extremely well and I recovered more quickly than I otherwise would have. The team at Alexander Ortho is the best!

Dr. Odmark is amazing! I completely tore/ruptured my Achilles tendon in October 2019. Today is March 13 2020. I have not had any setbacks and my recovery is slightly ahead of expectations. I cannot thank Dr. Odmark enough for the comfort and professionalism provided during this very trying time for me. He was great about laying everything out in a way anyone could understand. It took me about 30 seconds to realize I had made the right choice, which alleviated all nervousness on the day of surgery. You can tell he genuinely cares about helping people. He was honest with the recovery timeline and always took the extra time to answer all of my questions. I did my Physical Therapy at the St. Pete location. Matt and Trish are exceptional! Everything you do has a purpose and they make sure you do everything right to assure a proper recovery. I always felt like my recovery was in the best hands possible. The front desk team in this office is filled with superstars. I look forward to seeing them every week. The entire staff at Alexander Orthopaedic is wonderful. The administrative staff makes you feel very welcomed. Every nurse I had interactions with was absolutely terrific. I would 100% would recommend Dr. Odmark and Alexander Orthopaedic.

After searching for a good hand surgeon, we were referred to Alexander Orthopedic Associates, Dr. Penello in St. Petersburg. Our first appointment was very pleasant, on time, and everybody was very professional. Dr. Penello is a very knowledgeable and gentle surgeon. The surgery itself was without a doubt the best experience ever. No "open hand" surgery but the endoscopic surgery, minimal invasive procedure. After discharge, I had no pain at all. A small incision in the wrist was all it took. Now, not even 2 weeks later, I have just a tiny scar left that will disappear. I was back to work the next day. All in all an awesome experience and I highly recommend this office and Dr. Penello.

On Nov. 13, 2017 and again on Feb. 14, 2018 I had hip replacement surgeries in St. Petersburg, Fl. with Dr Vladimir Alexander of Alexander Orthopaedics Associates. I specifically chose Dr Alexander from his being praised by pleased return patients and my own impression of his demeanor and what I saw as a sincere interest in wanting to help you, if you were willing to do your 50% of a " joint effort." I am now 8 weeks post op on second hip replacement and I am quite pleased with progress with both hips. This is an ongoing project, not always easy or comfortable but with an excellent skilled Surgeon, a personal commitment to work hard and return to my 45 year career as a Fitness Professional Trainer and Instructor, and the help of great PT's, who understand setting and achieving personal goals I will succeed. Thank you Dr Alexander for giving me my life back!

I recently had an MRI on my left shoulder at Dr.Alexander's Largo office and I cannot tell you how incredibly professional both Sheila and Lisa are and how comfortable they made me feel. I have claustrophobia and because of them I was able to get through it with no problems. Very impressive! And not to mention how Lisa bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule! I would to recommend Alexander Orthopedics to anyone in need of care, they are the best!

I had a full knee replacement with fantastic results! I did follow both pre and post op directives, as prescribed, so there were no "surprises". Post-op physical therapy is absolutely necessary to achieve optimal recovery, and it does require commitment. I am male, 69 years old, 3 months post op as I write this. Much thanks to Dr. Alexander and his Associates! I can climb stairs again.

I really do not enjoy going to the doctors office. That said, Lindsay Duquette, PA., Doctor Daniel Penello and Kathleen at the front desk were all excellent! Professional knowledge, bedside manner, treatment options all exceeded my expectations. I will be availing myself of their services in the future but with much less trepidation. Thank you all.

The best thing I have ever done, I would recommend Doctor Alexander without reservations he was wonderful and so is his staff. He made my hip surgery easy, as I had put it off for a long time, if I had known before how wonderful and talented he was I never would have waited so long.

I want to thank Dr. Alexander and his staff for performing two separate operations on me. I am mid 50's and in 2014 had a total shoulder replacement. The pain is gone and I have 90% range of motion back. In early 2015 I had a Knee revision which includes taking a failing knee implant out and replacing with a new total knee. I have had great success with the new knee and credit it to the system they have in place at the beautiful new state of the art facility on 9th street in St.Pete.The system works from scheduling with the friendly staff to figuring out insurance issues.

A huge part of the system is the wonderful rehabilitation that is on site and they make sure you have all your appointments set and you are constantly being monitored on your improvements. The Physician assistants that worked with me are top notch and a credit to the program's success. Highly recommend this group of professionals.
