Saw Dr. Bardfield on Friday after successfully requesting to get in a week earlier than my original appointment. He was very attentive and took my pain/busy work schedule seriously. Was able to get in for an MRI the same day, have the results read, and receive a phone call from Bardfield with the results all in the same day. He scheduled a procedure for Monday. Amazing! I am sure it's not always able to work out that way, but he was very attentive and helpful! Seems to genuinely enjoy his work.

I have 2 workers comp injuries 2013 and 2015. Dr. Bardfield has made a hugh inpact on my medical care. I went to him on a second opinion and I am glad I did. He is very caring, kind helpful and if he is not able to help me he does refer me another one of his physicians in this practice. His care has made me better and able to function in my daily living role.
