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.

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!
