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.

Dr. Alexander is fantastic. She maintains your personal dignity, is clear, concise and caring. She truly listens and hears which is evident in feedback given.

One of the Best Physicians at WFBH. Needs to be cloned.

12/28/2015

Dr. Alexander is the best. She does all the doctorly things just right and I always leave with a sense of optimism about the problem that brought me in.

12/26/2015

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. She takes time with her patients, uses personal examples as applicable, works with you on plan of care & timely follow up. I would recommend to anyone, however, she does not have availability on her schedule to accept new patients!!

12/15/2015

12/1/2015

Dr. Alexander was very thorough and caring.

11/18/2015

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.

11/14/2015

Megan is awesome!!!

11/12/2015

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.

11/12/2015

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 have been seeing Dr. Alexander for almost 8 years now, and it has been a pleasure having such a caring doctor that is always showing concern about any health concerns I may have. I never have had to wait to get an appointment, and I usually don't have much of a wait time from the time of arrival to the time I see her.

Have learned that "MyWakeHealth" is not the best method of reaching & getting response from provider - she recommended I call for best response/fastest. Ask for appointment.

I've been with Dr. Alexander since moving to Winston-Salem 5 years ago. She is fantastic. She takes time with me; I never feel like she's rushing me so she can get on to something else.

Her explanation of anemia and blood work around that topic is phenomenal. Her banking analogy should be shared with others. Additionally, she helped me to understand a the results of a carotid test I had. She listened to my concerns even when I went on way too long about hair loss. She is very patient and makes me feel like I am her only concern when I'm in with her. She should be cloned

She is an excellent physician and a fantastic person to be on my team!

2/24/2015

I use the message system more often than the phone to contact the office for questions or needs. This "my wake health" system works well. The couple of times I phoned that went well also.
