Everyone that helped with my care were Awesome !!!

January 11, 2016

Dr. Lunsford and his office are by far the best. I visited several other neurosurgeons concerning radiotherapy prior to visiting Dr. Lunsford's office. He and his team are phenomenal. They are timely, friendly, and beyond knowledgeable. I drive 4 hours just to be seen by his office as I truly trust them more than anyone else I have seen.

January 11, 2016

Dr. Lunsford is a very good and professional physician and he is still able to joke around with me and has good bedside manor. That is very important to me!

Dr. Lunsford and his staff are always respectful and obviously desire to have an impact on my problem. I am lucky that such treatment, Gamma Knife, is available in Pittsburgh.
