Megan Alexander

Dr. Megan Alexander is a specialist in primary care medicine (internal medicine).

Megan M. Alexander, MD
University Internal Medicine - Country Club
4614 Country Club Road
336-716-WAKE or 336-713-8200

Medical Degree: Emory University
Internship and Residency: Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center
Board Certification: American Board of Internal Medicine

Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?

Answer: I'm originally from Clemson, South Carolina. I came to Wake Forest Baptist in 1999 to do my residency in Internal Medicine and then stayed to be on the faculty for one year. I left for five years to work at the Veterans Administration but returned to the Medical Center last year. I missed working with the residents and medical students plus I wanted a more varied patient population than I had at the VA.

Q: What are your clinical specialties?

A: I specialize in the primary care of adults with an emphasis on preventing and treating chronic disease. My focus is care of the "whole patient" - I am trained to manage multiple chronic medical conditions and coordinate care of multiple subspecialists.

Q: What is your patient care philosophy?

A: I enjoy preventive care and focusing on a team-based approach with the patient to prevent problems and treat existing illness. I feel patients are responsible for much of their health and wellness, and I promote healthy lifestyle choices they can make. I try to be practical about costs as this is often important to many patients: I try to prescribe generic medications if these will work well for the patient and try to keep tests to a minimum.

Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?

A. I enjoy seeing how happy patients become when they realize that a lifestyle change has profoundly improved a medical condition. An example of this are diabetic patients who dramatically improve their glucose control by losing just five to ten pounds. These results make patients realize they have more control over their illness than they originally thought.

Q: What are fun facts we should know about you?

I'm married to Richard Alexander who builds custom homes and we have three children. We enjoy camping, biking and any outdoor activity.

I know Dr.Alexander is not accepting new patient, but if she was I would recommend her to all I know. She is easy to talk to and very passionate in how she cares for me. When I went on 5/11 she was waiting for me to come in to explain my MRI and made sure all my referrals were done. She was in network for me and now she is out of network for me and I refuse to change. She makes me feel like I'm part of her family.

Dr. Alexander is THE BEST & I am sooo glad to see she was one of WFBH top Physician's of 2015 because she truly deserves to be.

Excellent care from start to finish.


Dr. Alexander is a "star"


Dr. Alexander is the greatest physician ever!! She is not only the best doctor but treats you like a friend. I have never had a physician that was as caring and knowledgeable as Dr. Alexander.

Dr. Megan Alexander is terrific, caring, efficient, and wonderful. All the staff and reception are friendly and accommodating. I recommend her to everyone I know.


Wonderful experience.


Dr. Alexander was very thorough and caring.


I always get the feeling I have a time limit and if I ask too many questions I get cut off or told we can discuss next time ( which is usually about 3 months). I have a Masters degree but don't understand any medical issues and I like to be informed but don't feel like I always get cler answers.


Megan is awesome!!!


Dr. Alexander if fantastic! I would recommend her to anyone!


Best physician in Internal Medicine at WFBH, maybe the best doc I've ever seen. Maybe Dr Atala could look into cloning Dr Alexander?! Focused on me throughout the encounter. Amazing. When she stated "I am concerned about you" I knew it was an honest comment. Maybe I will be better with my own patients because I have seen Dr Alexander's commitment to caring.


Dr. Alexander shows a genuine interest in my health and wellness. She is caring, efficient, and smart. I value her as the leader of my health care team!


I have been a patient of Dr. Alexander's for many years, and she has continued to provide excellent care. I trust her judgment.


Dr. Megan Alexander always knows me and my health history when she walks in the door. She always takes time to make sure I understand what the problem before she leaves the room. I couldnt ask for a better doctor! I would and have recomended her to others. She is a very compassionate person that really cares for her patients.


Dr. Alexander is just the BEST!


Megan Alexander is excellent.


She is WONDERFUL...AWESOME...THE BEST...CARING...COMPASSIONATE. I am older than her and needed to speak with her about a very personal issue, she was great. I didn't feel embarrassed and she gave me some really good advice. I was dreading the conversation, and she made it easy. I wish everyone could be like her.


I am so glad to be a patient of Dr. Alexander's. I confide in her and appreciate her listening, doctoring skills, and advice.


As always, Dr Alexander provided care and communication about that care that I needed.
