I am very sad... moving back to Ohio and leaving Dr. Lagferty and his nurse Jj !! 9 years ago we moved here and started coming to see Dr. Lafferty. He's the best and I'm afraid replacing him is going to be very difficult. Thank you for your care it was very much appreciated.

Dr Lafferty has been a wonderful doctor who has helped me to overcome the pains I was experiencing from RA. He is always attentive to my needs, and listens to my remarks. I would be happy to recommend him to friends and family. In addition to being a doctor, he is a gentle man who cares about his patients.
