Patient Comments (7)
Chattanooga, TN |
I liked Dr. Ledford at our first appointment, and even more as we worked out my heart issues, as I needed vascular surgery & there was a question about my heart's faction number. He followed up at the hospital after and ordered a pint of blood to help my recovery. He's interested in the type patient one is, and is a great listener.

Dr. Ledford showed sincere interest in me as a patient and as a person. He listened to my issues and took time to explain my condition. He was recommended to me by two friends who see him and they've had great experiences with him also.
Lawrenceville, GA |
Staff is very rude and acts like patient questions bother them. Dr was very upset and rude because he had to return a call. Left me in tears.

in Chattanooga, TN |
Although I have been Dr. Ledford's patient for several years, my two recent experiences with him were unsatisfactory. I went in for my annual checkup, eager to talk with him, since I have had a few issues lately and had been denied the chance to speak with him a few weeks ago. Dr Ledford was in the office but turned me over to a nurse practitioner with whom I was uncomfortable because of his condescending attitude. I experienced a lack of compassion and professionalism, felt disrespected.
