Excellent experience. I was very apprehensive about the procedure but was not in pain at all and was surprised at how comfortable I was kept throughout the surgical procedure!

He is an extremely knowledgeable doctor. The best in his field. He is to the point.

During my appointment, I felt as if I was Dr. Lunsford's only patient. He took the time to explain everything possible, anticipating my questions and needs and listening respectfully to my concerns. From the beginning of our visit, his warm handshake and the way he settled into his chair and made eye contact with me, I knew I was in good hands. He answered my questions in depth and on a level that validated my intelligence. Dr. Lunsford treated me with dignity, and I felt his compassion. There wasn't a second when I thought he wanted to rush me or move on to the next patient. I will sing his praises because he is so deserving.

Excellent service in MRI and office of Dr. Lunsford This survey is too long and you need a place for not applicable. I resent that your survey cannot be a shorter version.
