st louis, mo |
Dr. Hurford took time to ask all about my problem and told me options and the plus’s and minuses of each course of action. I really felt in control of my care.
Dr. Hurford is very compassionate and took that extra step to assure I was comfortable and educated with my diagnosis and treatment plan. Her honesty was greatly appreciated and I’m looking forward to living a healthier lifestyle with less pain.
St. Louis MO |
The attention that Dr. Hurford gave to me in addressing my concerns and direction towards me returning to my normal active life, is greatly appreciated. I feel as though she is genuinely concerned and that her heart is truly into taking care of me.
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.
