Dr. Alexander On has superior training and experience. He's smart. He's personable. He's a good communicator. I don't think you could find a better surgeon in this distinct specialty field. In my opinion, he is one of the best in the United States. Wonderful to have him on the Virginia Mason team.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
The doctor threw me a curve ball just before the Kenalog injection procedure by telling me for the first time that a possible risk of the procedure was blindness in the involved eye. I thought it was a very poor time to give me that information and I had to ask a lot of questions to determine that the risk was so low it was like saying any time you have any medical procedure something can go wrong. But it unnerved me and I was disappointed that Dr. On would be so matter of fact about something so serious. This information could have been given to me well in advance of my procedure so that I would have time to research it and think about it.
