in Acworth, GA |
Dr. Mefferd and his staff have provided exceptionally genuine and loving care and concern. He has treated, prescribed, and referred appropriate actions to reduce my war and auto accident-related pain. I'm pleased to highly recommend him.
I visited Dr. Mefferd upon request of my insurance's lawyer since they requested that I have a second opinion in regards to a recommended surgery and a back pain stimulator. When I visited him at his office for this second opinion, Dr. Mefferd only asked me a few questions and neglected to review my MRI's even after I asked if he would like to review them. This visit only lasted five minutes and it was very obvious that he was working with the insurance to delay treatment. Be Careful!

Paul Medford has one of the worse cases of "The God complex". Every appointment I would dread weeks in advance because I knew I would be crying and begging for help. Sneers and condensation. This man Enjoyed watching me beg and cry for pain relief.At the begining of each appointment I asked, is there a new procedure, surgery, injection, something anything that would help me? No. Fact- there are. Nerve root injections. I caught him in other glaring obvious lies. Do not trust your care to this ma

excellent Dr thanks

Not sure what his office receptionists are doing, but when you make an appointment and they cancel it the day beforehand without cause or explanation over email, it reflects very poorly on the doctor.

I came to him almost four years ago in horrible pain. My back, hips and neck. He was so very kind from the very start. He listens to you as you sit and talk to him about your pain and when you have finished he will work with you to help you find relief! I have only been to one other doctor, that comes close to his compassion. If you are sincere with him, he's the same with you. I will have to say-I love and trust him

He is kind and professional. I have recommended friends that truly are in pain and they agree. He is a wonderful Dr.
