Nice professional doctor but the wait time was excessive. Location of office does not provide adequate parking and with only 90 minute metered parking. Long wait time to see the doctor does not help with the stressed that the meter will run out and you'd get ticketed.

I saw Dr. Bedford after being involved in a car accident. He made me feel extremely comfortable and safe. You can tell that he's a good person with a kind heart just by a few minutes of interacting with him. Both he and the person shadowing him were awesome and helpful. I definitely recommend paying Dr. Bedford a visit if you are in need of an orthopedist!

Found Dr. Bedford on ZocDoc at 10pm the night before my appointment, in the midst of excruciating back pain, and so glad I did. I'd hardly turned in my paperwork when a technician came out to take x-rays. After that, I probably waited less than 3 minutes before a nurse practitioner came in to talk about my symptoms. She was kind and thorough and said the doctor would be in shortly to look things over and make sure he agreed with her assessment. After that, I thought he was only going to drop by for a second, but Dr. Bedford ended up spending about 10 minutes more going over my diagnosis and providing more information. In fact, seeing both the doctor and nurse practitioner was nice because I had an opportunity to think about further questions I had between the two. Administrative staff were efficient and answered all my questions. I like their web presence as well.

Friendly and efficient staff got me through everything quickly starting even before my appointment time. Dr. Bedford seemed thorough in looking at my knee and comparing it to my other knee to check for differences. The MRI is convenient and also in my network. He called me the same night to let me know the results of the MRI and was thorough in helping me understand what we had thought before, and what we found. Great experience altogether.

Dr Bedford and Meredith are so helpful! I have been seeing them over the last 6 months for my knee injury. They always spend plenty of time with me and answer every question I have. They always take the time to help me understand what it is going on and what is the best course of action. I feel like the really care about my well being and aren't trying to rush me into anything. I also love that the office has and on site x-ray and MRI so you never have to go too far if you need something.
