The appointment was at 10. We were in the examine room from 10:20 - 11:40 before anyone came in to talk to us or examine her. However, the fellow and the doctor spent an adequate amount of time explaining the condition and responding to questions.

Dr. Lanford is our sons doctor. She is a wonderful person and always there when we need any information or help with our son. She's a great cardiologist!

We love Dr. Lanford and the tech (Amanda) that did his echo, was patient and kind! We had a wonderful experience with a two year old. (that alone should speak volumes!)
