Of his practice, Dr. Lindsey says, “I think in today’s medical-patient relationship trust is a word that we use but don’t provide. I can say with confidence that our patients trust us because we have earned it. The staff at 850 Middlefield is exemplary: we are thorough, polite, educated, and treat each person with individuality.”
