    She was sure to get the answer to my question for me, and very courteous.

    We had a very positive experience on January 23, 2020 with Dr. Michael Anstead, the nurses, and the medical student (Mr. Grigsby). Mr. Grigsby came in first. He did a really good job asking questions; he made sure he understood what we were communicating, and communicated this information to Dr. Anstead. When Dr. Anstead came to the room he took his time with us. He asked more questions, he took the time needed to review the medical file/options to pursue, and was thoughtful of our concerns. At the end of appointment Dr. Anstead went over all the different possibilities that could cause her symptoms and the tests he wanted to run. A plan was made to explore three different possible causes of her symptoms, and contingent plans were made depending on what was learned from these. Dr. Anstead was very nice and through with the care he gave her. He explained to us that he has never had a case like hers and that it presented a challenge to him. We were very thankful for the way this appointment went. We are grateful for the attention to detail that Dr. Anstead is taking to help her get better.

    Dr Anstead and his staff have been awesome with my daughter! I always feel comfortable discussing any issues or concerns and trust exactly what they tell me. I would high recommend this clinic.

    I've only been with the UK-CF Clinic for a short period of time, but I don't plan on leaving - They are amazing!
