TESTIMONIALS

WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT DR. STRATFORD


I felt Dr. Stratford and his staff were very friendly and helpful. They made me feel at ease and I felt they had my best interest in mind. I did not feel rushed in any way, but felt that they addressed my concerns and answered my questions. I would definitely recommend them to others who would need their services.


Sandra


I found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful. The office area is comfortable and well managed. Dr. Stratford was patient, helpful in understanding my concerns and willing to take all the time needed to explain alternative routes to take.


Rachel


After a year of alternative solutions, surgery seemed to be the answer. At eight weeks post-op, I can honestly say, it has made a huge difference. A heartfelt “thank you” goes to the entire staff for your TLC on the journey and especially to Dr. Stratford, who is an excellent surgeon.
