    How was your appointment with Dr. Lyford?

    Apr 18, 2024
    Dr. Lyford is excellent. Top of his field. He is personable and professional. He’s done several colonoscopies on me and he is wholeheartedly one to be trusted. His training is exceptional as is his knowledge and ability/experience. I’ve recommended 3 people to him and they agree. If you have to get the procedure, then get it done by a professional that is very nice. Too often I see specialist that make me think I’m talking to a piece of cardboard. Dr. Lyford actually cares about his patients.
