If you are judged by those around you, this Doctor gets the lowest grades! Dr. Ledford prescribed therapy for a 93 yr old patient, but staff could not get the proper signatures, etc despite repeated calls from the physical therapy center. I called to cancel a rescheduled appointment for today...more

Dr. Ledford is highly professional and has excellent bedside manners. She operated on my wrist three years ago and it has healed beautifully although I have a plate, BUT I can play the piano again!
