Dr. Alford is one of the best doctors I have been to. He's very down to earth, very caring and takes the time to explain things in depth if you have questions. And overall he's just a really nice guy. I have been going to him for a long time and wouldn't change unless for some reason I absolutely had to. His assistant Vanessa is the greatest too!
