I have been a patient of Dr Orfords for about 10 years, since he was in WY. He eventually recomded me to the transplant team at Utah Heart Clinic. He was a great go between in the meantime. He was awesome at squeezing me in for in between routine check ups and doing what ever he could for me. I see him now on occasion when he does my Right Heart Caths. He even saw and treated my 90 year old grandmother in law just becuase I called him and he relaized how far away she was from any sepcialsts.
