Patient Comments (6)
in Ashland City, TN |
Dr. Lanford is an excellent neurosurgeon and his team exhibits the same excellence in both the care provided as well as scheduling and administrative functions. He has worked with me through three different issues with my cervical spine and I never once felt nervous about Dr. Landord's abilities as a neurosurgeon or like just another faceless patient. I would definitely refer anyone in need of neurosurgical care to Dr. Lanford.

I have definitely been recommending people to my dr. He is an amazing dr and is very caring. He makes sure that he does the right operation and not anything unnecessary. When I went to have my surgery, I could not have asked for any better people. They were all so amazingly sweet and even if they were not my nurse, they would still get me what I needed, whether it was a drink or something else. If I ever have to have any other operations, it will be with him.

Dr. Lanford was very courteous, attentive and thorough.
in Greenwood, WI |
He operated on my spine to create stability and room for the nerves but he made less room for the nerves than before the surgery with severe nerve damage to my foot. The MRI and EMG testing proves it and he still denies it! Stay away!

Dr. Lanford did my surgery in 2008. He was very to the point about what my issue was and what needed to be done. I completely trust what he says and recommends. His interest is making his patients better. I've seen him recently for a different issue, and once again, he was very direct on what the problem was and the course of treatment I needed.
in Manchester, TN |
Dr. Lanford has been someone I have counted on for many years. He's done 3 surgerys on me and he's an excellent surgeon. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is very forthcoming about your health. I wouldn't go to anyone else and I just recommended him to my Mom.
