7/26/2016

After surgery, Dr. Langfitt and two other doctor's came to visit. While talking about how I was progressing, I mentioned that my heel was hurting. My family was very impressed with the immediate reaction of all three doctors who quickly moved to check my foot and immediately provided me with the care I needed to relieve my discomfort. Although I appreciate the care, the doctors quick reaction put my family at ease and quickly cultivated a higher level of trust and a lower level of anxiety for my family. I appreciate that Dr. Langfitt and staff took the time to caringly react to my concern. Their quick, caring reaction positively impacted four individuals - I am thankful.

4/30/2016

We are at the age of (60's) being surprised by the Drs and nurses are our children's ages. They are full of new and better ideas and we are noticing that they aren't in a rush and understand our need to understand our medical problems and how to deal with them. At first I was apprehensive but I now trust and rely on our new doctors professional advice. We are fortunate to have both Dr. Langfitt and Dr. Clark to help Lane.And we like the idea of this 'fellowship' program as we get more opinions and more then 1 opinion. Thank you.

4/22/2016

Dr. Langfitt is an awesome physician and surgeon.

4/13/2016

Dr. Langfitt was nice to me and my son. He went over the need for my surgery and what it would entail. Everything was described in a way that was clear to understand. This meeting helped to ease not only my mind but that of my son as well. He also let me know if I thought of anything else or had anymore questions I could call back and he or his assistant would get back to me. This I did appreciate too.
