Everyone is always so nice and helpful when we come to children's hospital.

Dr. Lanford is always so wonderful! She always makes sure my son is doing well and discusses any concerns or issues in full detail. She makes sure that by the end of the visit, we are on the same page with his treatment and are aware of what is coming at the next appointment. She also makes sure we know that if we have any concerns before our next appointment to contact her. She is very good with my son.

Dr Lanford is terrific. I've seen her for 15 years with my son and I love her.

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!)

The doctor was excellent and we are so happy to have taken our daughter to children's. She educated us on the condition and it was a very knowledgeable visit.
