Accepting new patients

Dr. Stafford graduated from Tufts University Medical School in Boston where he was awarded the Martin J. Loeb Memorial Prize in Medicine for "academic achievement and evidence of basic human qualities." Originally from Southern California, he moved back to go to the University of Southern California for residency, where he was honored by the USC medical students with the "Excellence in Teaching" award. Dr. Stafford's passion for medicine started at a very young age as his father was also a physician. He has worked at kid's camps, mentored students as well as volunteered over seas. Dr. Stafford understands that every person has their own set of unique circumstances and health challenges and therefore believes that the best physician-patient relationships are when the patient is motivated and proactive in their own healthcare. That is why he likes to have a clear and simple goal in the best interest of the patient.

Learn about Dr. Stafford

Care Philosophy

Dr. Stafford is passionate about helping people, yet understanding that emotional and mental well being are just as important as the physical well being. Therefore, he practices with the philosophy of "whole person" care. His approach to medicine is more proactive rather than reactive to signs and symptoms of disease. He likes to teach patients a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise and believes this philosophy is best facilitated through a "team work" approach. His goal is to teach every patient how to have and live a happier and healthier life!

I have been at the practice for years and have seen Dr. Stafford a few times now. I think he's great. He is very thorough and understanding. I have always found the staff to be helpful and timely. Last year I got really sick with some kind of cold and my asthma was the worst it's ever been. I went in to see him and I didn't leave for an hour and a half...after my exam, the staff gave me a breathing treatment and he re-checked me before I left to make sure I was breathing better.

I usually come to my appointments with an index card of questions, issues or concerns. Dr. Stafford listens carefully and with patience. We prioritize and I get answers. His demeanor is calm and caring and when appropriate, I receive follow-up calls to labs and results immediately. He's the real deal, a doctor with a genuine desire to assist others in feeling their best!!

I currently have a condition that needs to be monitored via CT every few months. not once have I heard from the dr on my results its always been a rude nurse that calls me back after I have left several message to find out my results and says yeah sorry we just don't know if it's cancer or not keep going doing the CT and we'll see what happens. My husband also goes here and had a procedure done last Sept. no follow up from Dr office, lack of concern for our time when they misscheduled twice.

Dr. Stafford cares more about money than patient needs. He does not return emergency messages until the end of the day then tells his patient to take Tylenol. His office staff is extremely rude and hangs up on patients. Every time I needed anything he insisted that I need to go to urgent care so he could charge more for the after hours visit at 2 p.m. In the afternoon. He does not understand how to be compassionate and acts like his patient's pain is trivial. Refill requests take a week.
