To make a long story short. I had a birth defect called a a Pancreatic Divisium. I was admitted to hospitals 8 or 10 times a year. After the Modified Puestow Procedure hospital admissions were about 3 to 4 times.Dr Stafford, Bukari and Gene Preston P.A. with their compassion caring and pain control which gave me quality of life. They literally saved my life. I live in South Bend now but will always have these Doctors as my Physicians and friends.

Was seeing Dr Stafford for a year and went in once every three months for check up and prescription reliefs and over the course of that same year I just started to feel sicker. I was exhausted all the time with nausea, stomach aches and my sleep was a wreck. He never once tried to treat or figure out what may be causing it turns out I had Kidney Cancer, anemia and none functioning gallbladder. My surgeon told me had I waited 1 more month he couldn't guarantee he would have caught it in time.

He either does not keep or does not refer to a list of his patients current medical conditions. He doesn't treat any but the most mundane medical concerns. All others he sends to the hospital where the hospitalists try to treat a condition with little medical history on the patient. I would not recommend anyone go to Dr Stafford.
Was a patient for 6 years: office is very unorganized- I received wrong fasting instructions for procedures at least twice. It is almost impossible to get an appointment within a week, and they have, hands-down, the WORST receptionists.
