What People Say About Dr. Gregory Lyford, MD

While this site and the Ferrell-Duncan site say he is accepting new patients, he is not. I received a specific referral and called to schedule with Dr. Lyford. They scheduled me with Dr. Ng without telling me and I almost got a post-procedure surprise about who my doctor was. They appeared to be dishonest about the referral, saying the referral was "first available" while the primary care nurse read the specifics of the wording. Integrity is important in a care provider and staff.

Dr Lyford is a wonderful doctor. He answers all questions and never makes me feel undeserving of an answer to my questions. He is professional and extremely courteous. I feel safe in his care, and would recommend him to anyone. I feel fortunate to be his patient. His staff is equally courteous and pleasant.
