I had a bulging disc in my lower back. Instead of just removing the bulging part he removed the whole disc. I had horrible pain for over a year because of his incompetence. I ended up with a wonderful Dr., who did disc replacement surgery, but because of the year I went without a disc in my back I ended up with permanent nerve damage. At 45 years old I have to wear Depends because I have no nerve sensation to my bladder. I had to quit work and go on disability. I should have sued him. Bad Doc!!!

Dr Alford has Rodney his PA see you first & obtain a detailed medical history. Dr Alford spent time listening & reviewing past records & wasted no time in getting additional test to determine what the current situation is. He explained things in simple terms. He has come highly recommended from several of my other medical providers & was highly respected by them for his skills. His office staff failed to set up the referring facility test & pain management Dr without several follow up calls.

Dr. Alford was professional and courteous. I have some complicated spine issues of unknown origin, and am facing another procedure in a different state...however my experience with Dr. Alford and the clinic has me trying to plan on having the procedure done by him in Fort Worth. When you are facing invasive spinal procedures you want to know the doctor has excellent knowledge of the procedures and risks, and Alford was great.

I had developed disabling pain in my left leg in an L4 distribution. Had L4-5 discectomy 30 years ago for acute disc rupture. Following a traumatic injury (complete avulsion of left hamstring muscles), orthopedic care and PT didn't resolve the pain issue. Referred to Dr. Alford who expanded the W/U and diagnosed a synovial cyst where my previous surgery had occurred. Recommended conservative therapy with epidural injections. The injection completely resolved the symptoms.
