SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. Walford did not find the food allergies that we suspected, so she offered an alternative explanation for my symptoms, which is proving very effective in dealing with symptoms I've had all my adult life. She's wonderful!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Walford found I have an immune deficiency, and probably have had it my whole life. I am so grateful for her tenacity in finding this and helping me get all the treatment I need to address this health problem. It's such a relief to finally know why I get sick all the time. I love her kind, empathetic approach, and know she's very smart. I'm so grateful she found this problem I have. Her nurse, Annie and the rest of the staff I interact with at this clinic are so kind, helpful and personable.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

My first visit w/ Dr Walford--Dr Cummings on vacation. Dr W agreed to see me on very short notice (on her lunch break, I think) b/c of my complaints/symptoms. I VERY much appreciated that level of concern and accommodation.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Walford is an excellent physician by all measurements.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

A good doctor and a kind person as well. Best doctor EVER!

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Of all the physicians I've seen as part of Stanford Hospitals and Clinics, Dr. Hannah Walford should be used as the example for everyone else. She actually seems to care and offers good advice. Every other Dr I've visited at Stanford has either been completely nonchalant about my problems, or answers every question with a question (me: Should I take medication X? dr: I don't know, do you want to take medication X?) She's been very helpful and is the main reason I still drive down to Palo Alto for my appointments instead of getting new, local doctors.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Dr. did a great job.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Outstanding doctor. Caring, professional and knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

DR Wolford took her time to answer all my questions and I would not hesitate to refer her to my friends and family.

Dr. Walford was exceptional! She was kind, helpful, listened, and really helped look into my allergies. I was very impressed! Thank you!

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Walford is terrific! Took extra time with us to answer our questions - She obviously knows her practice area very well.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Walford was extremely helpful in diagnosing my problem and tellling me how to manage it. She was also personable and efficient. I enjoyed meeting her and went away reassured that the problem would be handled.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Walford is wonderful. She spends a good amount of time explaining things and answering questions.

Excellent!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Hannah Walford was amazing

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I drove 3 hours to reach Menlo Clinic so I appreciated Dr. Walford's working me into the following day for an unscheduled visit to extend the testing.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Wow, Dr. Walford was amazing. She was super empathic and gave me confidence that not only has she seen my problem before, but that she could help me. What a relief! She was very kind, and I felt like I was in good hands.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

All great!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

This was a situation I normally dislike when a second doctor has to follow up on treatment prescribed by another but Dr. Walford was not only knowledgeable (which is expected at Stanford) but she was up to date with my condition and was extremely patient with my questions to make sure I understood my options. An outstanding experience with a caring doctor!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

My experience has been good doctors, assistant, nurses, all who have visited me for health problems I can't complain all of them are courteous, kind, & warm-hearted.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

The checkup w/Dr. Wolford was very good. Even though she wasn't my mother's allergist (was on vacation), she fit in vey well and was just as good. It's good to know that other doctors in this area (Allergy) can pick up where the other doctor left off. Great job!!!

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

my health issue was not completely addressed, my initial visit seemed rushed, no other suggestions were made, I did not feel the provider was determined to fully support me

SHC Patient, May 2015

I am so grateful to Dr. Walford. She is a professional, but very personable, caring physician. She listens to me, gives concise explanations and oral directions, then has made explicit notes for me to follow in taking the multiple medications she has prescribed. She pursued my symptoms until she discovered a hidden (to me) infection. I feel so much better and so confident that I have caught this illness before it gets ahead of me. She has called me at home twice. I have only EVER had one other doctor do that. Dr. Walford is DEFINITELY a keeper! Be glad she is on your staff.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr Walford was very patient and she explained things in ways that's easy for me to understand.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Great experience! Dr. Walford and staff and amazingly helpful.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr Walford is really sweet, caring doctor
