Dr L Dade Lundsford was extremely professional & considerate to our needs. He explained in depth my husband's health situation. He saw us in consultation in 2 days for which we are extremely thankful. We also thank Dr Joe Maroon for referring us to Dr. Lundsford. His concern for my husband's needs was outstanding.

I am unclear about the more specific results of my MRI tests. How much has the tumor grown? There seemed to be different information from the doctor --as compared to the Physician Assistant. I would like to see the radiologists' reports on this recent test -- and the one that I had had one on June 30, 2017.
