Dr. Alford has always been very professional, caring, and courteous. You can't ask for much more in a doctor. I appreciate that Dr. Alford is very well educated which makes me trust his opinions and judgement. He solidifies his expertise by showing me how and why he was diagnosing me with the issue I was having by the symptoms I was exhibiting. I can take comfort in knowing his experience and education will leave me with the best care possible.
