The doctor is wonderful, very thorough and kind. The office emailed me a request to check in ahead of time and fill out the forms online. I spent 20 min at home filling them out electronically. When I arrived at the office the front desk said “oh that doesn’t work, you’ll have to fill them out again on paper.”

I was seen by two different students before seeing the doctor for a very short time. I was okay with the visit at the time mostly due to his good bedside manner, but realized later I should have tried to ask more questions and spent more time seen by the doctor. I was told to start physical therapy and if things didn't drastically improve in a month, I should get an MRI. I didn't even think to ask what the MRI would be for. Went through the physical therapy and my hip pain actually got worse by the end of the month so I stopped. I'm out lots of out of pocket money now and hesitating to see another specialist about this.

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!
