When asked for her favorite patient story, Dr. Ledford relates:
“My favorite patient story was that of a little boy who came in for his first exam simply because his mom wanted him to have a check up done. He was a bright and healthy child with no complaints. Throughout his exam numerous little data points did not add up. The more I investigated and examined him the more certain I became that there was something very serious going on. After a quick referral for further testing the child was diagnosed with a tumor and quickly started on treatment. I still have the distinct pleasure of seeing this patient, who is now an adult, and he always brings a smile to my face.”
