About Us

Proven Health Care For Southeastern Illinois Patients

Alexander Family Practice was established in 2003 when James O. Alexander, MD, obtained the practice from a retiring Dr. Schaede. Dr. Alexander had returned to Harrisburg to practice in 1991 and went on his own in 1997. Applying his years of independent and associated practice experience, and adding a physician’s assistant, Dr. Alexander opened Alexander Family Practice to new patients. Loni Banks, nurse practitioner, joined the team in 2010.

Harrisburg Medical Center acquired the practice in 2012. Today, Alexander Family Practice has two locations – in Marion, Illinois and Harrisburg, Illinois. Our lab is CLIA and COLA certified and we perform in-house testing that includes CBC, hemoglobin, A1C, mono, strep and pregnancy. X-rays at both locations are black-lung certified.
