Darlene was very knowledgeable and helpful
Darlene Kalford is very knowledgeable. She explains everything thoroughly and answers all of your questions. I believe she is one of the most proactive providers that I have been treated by. I have recommended her to others.
All of those that attended to me were awesome. I'm grateful.
Ms. Kalford is an excellent clinician and very caring. I felt she really cared about my health!
I felt comfortable and informed during my visit. Darlene took a lot of time with me and answered all of my questions and concerns.
This was my first visit with Darlene and I was very impressed with her thoroughness. Although it had been a very hectic day at the clinic and her appointments were running behind schedule, I didn't feel rushed or pushed aside. For that I am thankful!
One thing that struck me raw: I came for a "long physical" appointment. So I had a few concerns to discuss during that time. Near the end, she mentioned how we covered way more than should have been discussed at a regular appointment but she was doing me a favor by addressing them all. It was never explained that I was only allowed to discuss certain things and she's certainly not doing me a favor. She's doing her job. While I appreciate her frankness, I'll likely return to seeing Dr Heffley once Dr Heffley is back to health and on a regular schedule. I saw Darlene simply because I didn't want to delay my appointment any longer.
Darlene is absolutely wonderful! Always a delight seeing her. And she gets to the bottom of my issues every time.
