Dr. Lankford is extremely gifted at what he does. He's not like most doctors who give up on you if something doesn't work out the first time. He is a very caring doctor and I would highly recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Langford has put injections in my back two times over a period of two years and he is very professional and all the staff at Texas Back Institute. I recommend Dr. Langford to anyone who has a need for his type of expertise.
