Portland Area Pediatrician Hugh E. Alexander, M.D.

Graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch in 1988. He completed his pediatric residency training at the Children’s Hospital of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Alexander is board certified in Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and shares his practice with Dr. Susanne Purnell, M.D. Their styles and approaches seem very compatible (many patients and parents are happy to “see either doctor”) and at the same time the two doctors complement each other (an adolescent may prefer to see one or the other about a particular concern). He takes advantage of Dr Purnell’s knowledge frequently—the two of them bounce ideas off each other when a condition is puzzling or unclear.

When he is not at the office, he enjoys being outdoors, preferably practicing his ukulele, and having fun with his family (he has three kids).
