I was very optimistic to meet Dr. Lefor. I had hopes he would finally be able provide answers to an issue I have had for well over a decade now. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Dr. Lefors only interest was in labeling me, putting me in a box and shoving me out the door. It was apparent that he had not done his due diligence with looking at all my previous medical history; nor did he care to hear about it and seemed to have only glanced at my chart seconds before meeting with me. My appointment with Dr. Lefor left me discouraged and really upset. Providers should never assume or treat their patients the way he treated me. Thankfully, I was able to get in with another provider for a second opinion and turns out Dr. Lefor let his seemingly jaded and presumptuous demeanor outweigh his professionalism. I would not recommend this provider to anyone who is actually seeking help.
