Dr Lankford made the right decision in telling me to wait on my slap foot condition. It got better and I did not need surgery.

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.
