Even though there was what seemed to be a million people there, I got checked in quickly and by the time I finished my paperwork I was called for X-rays. As soon as I was done with those I saw bothDr Bedford’s PA and Dr Bedford himself who both examined me and my X-rays. Dr. Bedford thoroughly explained my issues more than I was expecting and made sure I understood how to treat and what I could expect. Would definitely recommend and I will be going back when needed!

Dr. Bedford and his MA are amazing! After two months of seeing multiple doctors, I finally feel like I found a doctor that is focused on figuring out my the cause of my symptoms. The communication was clear and detailed aroundwhat could be the problems in my neck and shoulder, which are causing numbness (which has been a scary experience). Highly recommend!

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 askmore 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.

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 theoffice the front desk said “oh that doesn’t work, you’ll have to fill them out again on paper.”
