Both Dr. Ford and the Resident (I'm sorry I didn't catch his name) we're extremely attentive and listened, then thoughtfully offered possible care plans.

She was really good to me. She made you seem at easy about everything including my surgery. My follow up was great and she told me if I ever needed her just to call.
