Dr. Lunsford provides excellence in all aspects of care. He sets a high standard for any physician's practice in the city.

November 02, 2015

Very impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and kindness received from everyone who saw us; the doctor, the receptionist, the RN, the PA. These people make you feel confident that everything will be done with no mistakes or errors. They went above and beyond in the areas they were responsible for from the first phone call from the receptionist to the escort back to the car after the procedure and everything in between. Now this is how a world class health care facility is supposed to operate!

Dr. Lundsford and the entire staff are very professional. Given the time they have to make appointments for tests and office visits, I'm always amazed at how well coordinated everything is. And he and his staff are genuinely concerned about how you are doing. I would highly recommend them to anyone who had a similar problem.
