Ratings for Dr. S Stafford
I had such high hopes for Dr. Stafford! Her wait list is so long that I was thinking she must be an amazing doctor! I have been disappointed though. She is a very busy lady and I think sometimes forgets that patients have questions and can't just be rushed. I didn't feel like she listened to me.
Waited 5 months for my appointment after waiting over 25 years for medical knowledge to recognize the connection between head injuries and hormone deficiencies. Dr. Stafford assured me my T4 was my problem, seen it some large number of times before. My thyroids not involved but what's one more test? My T4 tested normal. Dr. Stafford called me at home and explained it would be too much paperwork and that would take away from her other (real) patients. She still produced a report, as an expert, that disregards the evidence. Thankfully they're teaching new medical students what Dr. Stafford doesn't have time for. Most of my appointment was with a student who decided I was fine. The staff had a laugh telling me the doctor won't see you, this isn't a pain clinic. My blood work and a letter from my doctor had been shredded. Just another day in the life of a patient with an unrecognized ailment. Treat everyone to the best of your ability and be humble enough to learn something new. If Dr. Stafford isn't ashamed of her actions then something is very wrong with our medical system.
When I saw Dr. Stafford I was on a long journey to be diagnosed with a rare chronic illness. I came across many rude, disrespectful and dismissive doctors who misdiagnosed me. Dr. Stafford was the opposite of all of them. Dr. Stafford was kind, professional, empathetic and extremely helpful. Dr. Stafford talked to me like a friend, like I was her equal and wasn't egocentric like the majority of the 20+ doctors I saw. She arranged an extremely rare test for me and was helpful every step along the way.
I have been a patient for 3 years and have had nothing but great experiences. I've always felt very well taken care of. My opinion and feelings have always been listened to. The staff have been very polite and understanding. This office is always accommodating and courteous. I'm so thankful to have this team behind me during my medical journey!
Dr. Stafford has been taking care of my mother for the past year and has been wonderful. My mother always enjoys seeing her and I join her for appointments and always get thoughtful answers to my questions and support. Dr. Stafford always balances quality of life with medical problems, and sometimes gets in touch in between visits to check on blood tests. My mom always looks forward to her visits!
Dr. Stafford is very punctual and very pleasant and indeed, if she was half as willing to listen to your concerns and fears and try and find a favorable solution to address your need, rather than the textbook theory or the pharmaceutical salesmens' latest "push", she would rate much higher on my list.
