Dr Ledford is heaven sent! He genuinely cares for his patients, listens to their concerns, and answers questions in detail. He went to him with questions, confusion, and scared of the diagnosis we were given of Wegener’s. However, he listended to our concerns, answered all our questions, and gave us hope. We have been with Dr Ledford for over a year now and he is consistent with his care. The staff is also great.

The office staff is great and very understanding. Unfortunately, we have many Doctors that we have to see due to major health issues and Dr. Ledford is one of the best. He is very detailed and explains exactly what he is prescribing and why. A real blessing to our family and would highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Ledford truly cares, he listens, he informs the primary care physician, he takes excellent notes to stay abreast of your care, he goes to bat for his patients by helping get them the tests needed and educates them on things they may not have a full understanding of, so they feel comfortable. Dr. Ledford is extremely knowledgeable about far more than his respective field and goes above and beyond to help, he gets to the bottom of things to heal not just mask symptoms with a pill. Impressive!

Went to Dr Ledford to provide a systematic approach to my newly developed seasonal allergies. Had an initial consultation & allergy test where I only reacted to the control. All he did was prescribe some expensive eye drops & tell me to come back in 3 months. When my symptoms worsened, I brought forward my appointment to see if something more could be done. However, after a 45 minute wait past my appt time, I was told there were still 2 people in front of me. So I canceled my appt & left.

When I moved here 3 months ago I knew the first Doctor I had to get established with was an allergist so I would have no break in my every other week scheduled injections. The timing, I felt was critical for me. These injections are the only thing that controls my asthma. I was able to get an appointment the first week I was here. I was elated. The staff was was very pleasant and caring. Dr. Ledford was extremely thorough and didn't miss a thing even though I'm a little interesting. Thanks

I’ve been a patient of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates of Tampa Bay for over seven years, have seen Dr. Ledford several times and you could not ask for a more knowledgeable physician when it comes to Asthma or Allergies. I highly recommend him as well as the other doctors at Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates of Tampa Bay.

I've had Dr. Ledford as a doctor since 1999. Professional thorough empathetic concerned are just a few of the words used to describe him. He's concerned about the patient's well-being beyond his professional capabilities. His atentativeness to other health concerns that weren't related to his specialty saved my life. He is gone the extra mile, he is the extra mile, he is what every new physician should desire to be. There are few like him. On top of all that he Is one of the best.

When I came to Florida 6 years ago, we called Dr. Ledford's office and explained the seriousness of my medical situation to his staff. Although I was not a patient, they arranged for me to see Dr. Ledford very quickly. I was amazed at how knowledgeable he was about my rare disease and its treatment. He is a consummate professional and I feel lucky to be under his care. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Dr. Ledford to anyone who needs expert allergy/immunological care.

I saw Dr. Ledford after developing a cough that wouldn't go away. It got to the point were I was barely finishing sentences. Dr. Ledford got me in right away and ran some tests and got me diagnosed and treated. He is attentive, empathetic, and the visit is about you not his ego, unlike some doctors. Great doctor and experience.
