Dr.Alford spent a lot of time with my son. She really took the whole person into consideration and went out of her way to find the right solution for my son and his situation. We were both extremely happy regarding the recommendation and outcome after our initial visit.

Wonderful doctor! She is great with understanding kids and teens, I recommend Dr Allison Alford to anyone!
She was eager to get to the bottom of the cause for my headaches. After seeing numerous neurologists that had no treatment, dr Alford came up with numerous options to pursue as possible treatments. She is willing to work with patients and will listen to their concerns within the treatment plan. I highly recommend.
