Dr. Lunsford takes time with me and explains all results from testing. His staff is very professional and friendly. Dana and Lana have been very attentive to my calls and questions, of which there have been many. I couldn't have asked for a better team than those at Dr. Lunsford's office.

dr Lunsford is excellent at what he does! I will miss him because of the whole highmark/upmc debacle. I have a very rare disease and I am nervous about going to someone else because of the insurance issue.
