    I love Dr. Orford.

    Awesome.

    Didn't feel fully listened to. Got test immediately, which was cool, but no time with provider after for questions etc. Basic voice mail w/results;cool. Then provider out of town, then delayed results on 2nd test (wherein I had to follow up twice) - results extremely basic w/o explanation.

    My care was very good by my provider.

    Dr. Orford explains things in detail, so any lay person can understand. He listens well and makes the patient feel OK. You do not feel like you are being rushed.

    The waiting time between the ECHO and seeing the doctor was too long. However at times this is understandable.

    Experienced on Mar 29, 2019

    Very positive - No issues.

    Excellent.

    I believe that Dr. Orford stays abreast of recent developments and research in the field of cardiology so I feel very comfortable with his diagnosis.

    The nurse who took me vitals was very good. I switched to a new prescription under Dr. Orford's advice. So far everything is good. Good visit overall.

    Dr. Orford was one of the best most thorough doctors I have seen. He was also very compassionate and showed empathy & was reassuring about my worries. He ordered an additional test and offered to get me in to a neurologist sooner than my appt. 4 months away. Really wonderful care. Thank you!

    The only problem I had here was when I called to see if I was suppose to stop taking blood thinners - my prescription was running out. It took one week to finally get my answer & it took me calling 3 times. Grrr! But the dr. was awesome!

    Having a heart event is very scary - but Dr. Orford & [...] helped me, listened to me, answered & explained it to me. I feel very good about my visit and my future - thank you!!!

    I would recommend Dr. Orford to anybody. He is an excellent doctor.

    Excellent care, knowledge, communication, and 'bed side' manner.

    Cardiac MRI nurse called MD office to make sure all was arranged for me - didn't pass it off or say it wasn't her area to make sure the MD office appt was all set up following my test.
