Ratings for Dr. Jeffery T. Alford
I was coughing up blood, had significant pleuritic chest pain, had a seizure 2 weeks prior, minor inflammation in a leg vein 1 year prior, no fever and otherwise I did not feel bad. I explained these symptoms to Dr. Alford. He told me I had a virus, to come back if it didn't get better. Coughing up blood cleared up in a few days, the chest pain subsided ~10 days later. Three months later my leg hurt, swelled up and turned purple. Diagnosis was DVT, a severe blood clot in my leg and abdomen that had resulted in a pulmonary embolism, the seizure, the coughing up of blood and pleuritic chest pain. This was literally a text book case of DVT, a major leading cause of death in the US. Naively, I visited Alford with the swollen leg and he treated me as an outpatient. I should have been admitted to hospital urgent care immediately. He then prescribed improper medication dosage complicating my condition. Not enough room here to explain the rest. This guy is grossly incompetent.
Our whole family uses Dr. Alford and has for many years. He has given excellent referrals to specialists and surgeons when needed. His nurse, Jay, is THE BEST. We never wait very long and if something is wrong with one of us, she'll typically squeeze us in quickly.
