I caution anyone who may go to Dr. Hurford. She should not be allowed to prescribe prescription medication when she is unaware of the law changes involved with the opioids. Her office is so confused as to what insurance they accept. I would pay attention to any bills they may send you. Dr. Hurford is very rude. During our conversation I dont believe she heard a word I said. i would not recommend her to my worst enemy.

I was a patient of Dr. Hurford's from 1996 through 2004, and I would still be a patient had my insurance not changed! She is AMAZING! I have never felt uninformed or ignored, and she spends a great deal of time explaining, in detail, everything and anything which isn't clear! Her care is thoughtful, well considered, and never pre-emptive: she makes sure you are on board with whatever she proposes, and if she and you have different opinions, she will make sure that your wishes are honored whenever possible. I've seen a LOT of Doctors in my lifetime, and I have a pretty good sense of who's good, who's bad, and who's great - Dr. Hurford is one of those very rare physicians whose medical skills are outshone only by her seemingly endless well of compassion. I literally LOVE Dr. Hurford!

I have a lot of faith in Dr. Hurford and truly appreciate all that she has done in aiding and educating me in getting me back to some normalcy. Overall, I feel so much better and in control of my pain. I’m learning to deal with what I can and enjoy the days when I am able to more. Thanks Dr. Hurford!

This office is terriable and the dr is so rushed and behind you are never sure that she knows which patient you are. Plan to wait awhile as the office is poorly run. I've heard most pain doctors are like this so maybe I expected to much. I was referred to this dr post surgery but will not see her again. Her PA was awesome the one visit I saw him and he sent me to an amazing spine PT.

I like Dr. Hurford, but, the wait times are ridiculous. The first time I was there it I waited over an hour to be taken into the office and then waited an additional 45 minutes to see the doctor. It's difficult to get return phone calls to set appointments. They are super slow at calling in prescriptions - takes five or six days to get a refill.

Office staff is rude. They do not answer the phone and do not return calls to plan appointments. After leaving a message and not getting a return phone call for 2 weeks, I called back first thing in the morning and still got voicemail and left a message and still no return, so I pushed zero thinking the system was broken and was greeted by a rude administrator who suggested going back to the same cue. Terrible patient care - go with a different doc this one doesn't want to see patients.
