“My husband and I want to thank you for seeing our daughter on Thursday, March 24, 2016.  You were very patient, very attentive, and actively engaged in the discussion, diagnosis, and treatment of our daughter’s headaches/migraines.  We have been dealing with these issues for several years now, and think we have landed — finally– at the right physician’s office.” Rebecca L Richmond, VA


“Watching your child suffer from headaches every day for five years, after seeing the pediatrician, cardiologist, endocrinologist, neurologist, etc. and receiving no clear diagnosis or answers, is heart wrenching.  During our first appointment with Dr. Alford, she came in, briefly introduced herself, and asked our daughter (age 15 at the time) to describe her life.  After the first few minutes Dr. Alford looks at my husband and me and says, “I know exactly what’s wrong with her, but keep talking so I don’t miss anything.” Tears fill my eyes as I write this and my heart fills with the same emotions it did that day – relief, joy, anticipation, etc.  We finally had someone who would listen to our concerns and give a correct diagnosis, chronic migraines.  We haven’t looked back since.  Dr. Alford and her sweet nurse, Denise, have become our friends on this journey of regaining control our daughter’s health.” The Price Family
