Dr. Lunsford and his staff are exceptionally professional while also being warm and concerned. I rate them some of the best medical staff I have ever needed.

I live out of state but had such good results from a former procedure that I was determined to return to UPMC for a repeat procedure. Dr. Lunsford not only performed the Gamma Knife procedure on me again, he also found another problem that I did not know about and took care of it. I am most grateful for both procedures.
