Sandra Alexander, M.D.

“Doctor, Friend, Advocate”

Dr. Alexander is delighted to join Perlman Clinic after working for over 20 years as a general practitioner on the Gulf Coast. With a deep commitment to personable, complete care, Dr. Alexander focuses on patient wellness and prevention and works tirelessly to meet each individual’s demands and fully comprehend their needs. In her previous practice, she had over 6,000 patient charts and an uncanny ability to remember everyone’s name and story. She is interested in getting to know her patients as human beings as she works in partnership with them to care for their health.

Having trained in surgery both in Brazil and the United States before deciding to focus on Family Medicine, Dr. Alexander brings a uniquely well-rounded perspective to her medical practice. She has worked in large inner-city hospitals in Rio de Janeiro, she has trained with world-renowned plastic and hand surgeons, and she specialized in oncological microsurgery in the beginning of her career. All this experience helped her sharpen diagnostic skills that are crucial in Family Practice. Some of her proudest achievements have involved saving patients’ lives with accurate early diagnoses of life-threatening conditions.

Dr. Alexander loves swimming, kayaking, and hiking; she is thrilled to be living in the beautiful San Diego area where she can enjoy her favorite activities year-round alongside her two sons, her grandson, and her lovable rescue dog Delilah.
