    I’m so thankful I was referred to Accelerated Recovery Specialist! I have received excellent service from the minute I made my appointment. Each staff member I met showed concern, empathy, and kindness! It is easy to see they truly care … More about their patients and want to help them. I met with Dr. Ford, and immediately felt like I was going to receive excellent care. Dr. Ford listened, understood, and sincerely cared about my back issues. I have just begun treatment with him, but I am confident that I will continue to be well cared for. I highly recommend Dr. Ford and his staff!
