Carpel Tunnel surgery itself...good far as I can tell. But... Terrible, terrible Dr at explaining or helping me understand Anything. His staff wasn't much better, then acted impatient if I asked questions. Dr wrote 3 different dates on my FMLA, STD and return to work papers. I felt like I was constantly confused and jumping through hoops for the whole 4 weeks. At appt when stitches came out, 1.5 weeks, he said go back to work. I said what about physical therapy? He told me that people that want physical therapy just don't want to go back to work. I was stunned! How incredibly insulting! I said I wanted to make sure my hand healed the best it could. He looked at me like he thought I was disgusting and he was exasperated. Silence. Then, with emphasis, he asked if I WANTed physical therapy and I said yes I do. He was very demeaning but I got my physical therapy. When I get my other hand done I will not go to him. I won't recommend him. As a person - he's lousy.

Dr Langford has been helping me with severe arthritis of the hands and wrists. I have been suffering severe pain in my hands while working out. Dr Langford has made it possible for me to continue my workouts with minimal pain. The steroid shots have been extremely precise targeting just the joints that are inflamed. The shots last about 4 months and make my quality of life much better.

Excellent doctor for surgery. I have had four such successful surgeries on my hands and wrists. Carpal tunnel on both hands and both wrists for De Quervain's tenosynovitis release. Always impressed with his bedside manner and his efforts in always pronouncing my last name correctly. It is unusual and not easy to learn. To me this is and indication of his level of care, he puts forth that extra effort, when not all doctors are so interested. I would highly recommended him for this type of care.

Dr. Langford performed carpal and cubital tunnel release on right and left side. Very pleased with the results. Explained the procedures and what to expect during recovery. Took time to answer my questions.

I have been treated by Dr. Langford several times, including surgery on an elbow smashed into gravel. I was referred to him by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in feet, and is not in his practice group. I would not see any other surgeon for an arm or hand problem. I found him to be capable and caring.

Was obstinate and totally disinterested. Referred by St Lukes East Emergency to Rockhill to order further scans, better than X-Ray, to pinpoint cause of level 10 pain in right arm. Dr Langford sent me home after doing absolutely nothing, saying I should just come back in a week .. not interested in diagnosing, not interested in further scans, not interested in level 10 pain in right arm. Said "Let's pretend it is broken .. keep it in sling .. come back in week" .. no cast, did nothing.

Dr. Langford did three surgeries in two weeks on my hands. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a hand specialist. He was incredibly knowledgeable while being personable and putting me at ease every step of the way. Dr. Langford and his staff are amazing and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome to my surgeries.
