Dr. Erich Lingenfelter said “I know you are hurting & we are going to get it fixed”. Dr. Lingenfelter sent me to get an EMG (Electromyography-this is a needle stabbing testing procedure for the injured areas. I was injured working at Fedex (work comp injury). The Dr. in Kansas City, MO performed the EMG repeatedly stabbed me in the neck & shoulder areas. This pain was unbearable & I couldn’t stop crying. A lady helped dress me after the test, I laid on their couch for an hr before I could walk or see. Two nurses put me in a wheelchair & hauled me out to the car. The pain I had in my head was unbelievable for months. Dr. Lingenfelter destroyed me. My neck injuries obviously didn't matter to the shoulder doctor. Now I live with perm. nerve damage, very limited movement, I rarely sleep, I get these stabbing electro pains in my body, pins & needles, hip & feet pain,hard to walk at times. My shoulder is now frozen. My life has changed forever. This happened Dec 2017, Fedex

Saw Dr. Nassab today for wrist pain. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. Very personable and down to earth. I felt at ease as soon as I met him. Thank you Dr. Nassab! Wearing my wrist splint right now.

Fell out of wheelchair onto my right side, the side of my polio. He saw me as a trauma surgeon. I was immediately transferred from Lee’s Summit Hospital to Research Ospital where he was. He is a wonderful doctor and very knowledgeable and nice.

I wouldn't recommend!!! He didn't fit my sister with a broken ankle a with a new boot after surgery. She was wearing one from ER that was too small. He didn't explain specific purpose of boot and importance. How the foot needs to heal, the direction it needs to be placed. The boot wasn't explained fully so she could understand how to function at home. He prescribed wrong pain pills that she had a red band on during her surgery. Caused her to be in more pain and a call to 911

He takes time to explain what he'll do to help you . I'm have a very complex back problem that other dr wouldn't touch . He was my last hope , he does require you to be smoke free for 6 weeks because smoking genders the healing process , he took the time to explain things in a way non medical person could understand , he gives you hope when you think there is none . He took time to review the medical evidence from other drs he has a good bedside manner and makes you feel at ease . He answers all your questions and also calls you ma'am

Dr. Lingenfelter is amazing. I've passed his name on to several friends who have also had amazing success. He tells it like it is. I was in my mid 50's with a tragic torn rotator cuff AFTER a shoulder surgery and PT that went horribly wrong. He performed a frozen shoulder release followed by a successful 2nd surgery. He has THE BEST PT's who specialize in shoulder repair. He is truly the best in town. I know he totally saved me. I'm extremely active, so this was important to me.

Dr Lingenfelter is the best shoulder and elbow surgeon, period. I have had no bad experiences with him and I am a workers comp case manager who assists injured workers to the best medical care. Superior treatment and outcomes resulted every time. I think so highly of Dr Lingenfelter that I had both of my shoulder replacements performed by him.

Dr. Lingenfelter is a great surgeon but he has lackluster staff with poor bedside manner, his nurse practitioner has the worst bedside manner I have ever experienced, and a nurse who fails completely in the areas of communication and compassion. PT. 4

My back had major deformities. Therefore, I had my spine reconstructed by Dr. Jakoi with every vertebrate being realigned from my pelvis to my thoracic vertebrate and a missing curve put in. It required two days of surgery and the hospitalization and rehab. are not easy. But I am glad that I had it done. Since I awoke from surgery, I have had zero back pain. I have forgotten the pain I used to feel. We are not supposed to hurt like that, and I do not hurt, at all, any longer. My legs and ribs complain with spasms as they acclimate to the new positions they are in, but I have meds. for that. I am 42 days post op. I work very hard at physical therapy, and today, I walked 0.36 mile, without using my cane except occasionally on steps, with my physical therapist. Previously, a walk across a parking lot would have make my back hurt. A physician told me that Dr. Jakoi was "gifted". Dr. Jakoi humbly blushed when I told him that, but personally, for me, I agree with that assessment.

Very caring and charismatic. Explained everything. This was my 9 shoulder surgery. Dr Lingenfelter performed a total reverse. Great experience I am a retired firefighter and after 36 years of service I was broken down. Dr Lingenfelter understands the stresses and hazard of performing a physical job. He made me feel like I was his only patient. I respect and love Doc!

Just go! They are the BEST as of my own personal experiences which include a herniated disk and 2 radial head fractures (one on each of my arms) and a fractured wrist. This is all related to 2 separate injuries but I am just trying to summarize this and it's "complicated". I hope never to see them again unless needed but as long as they are around if I am in need of their services this is the 1st and only place I would want to call. I have been meaning to write a positive review for quite some time but I have been too busy not being stuck on the COUCH! Thank goodness! -Thanks for listening. p.s. I am just focused on increasing my Fitbit's step tracker gradually so you know I don't end up breaking anything else. Ok well, sometimes things are not in the span of our own control and that's o.k. but they might have the answers you are looking for.

I would absolutely NOT recommend this man as a Doctor. He is rude, distant, gets impatient when asked questions. He wanted to stop my treatment to early, and wanted to stop PT after only three treatments. Stay far away from this doctor.

While I believe he practices all areas of orthopedics; he is the definitive authority on shoulders and elbows. Considering my own background, I would also say that he specializes in athletes and getting them back to pre-injury condition. I have referred him to many people of various ages and injuries- most of which were surgical- and not one of them were anything other than thrilled.

Left shoulder cuff repair. I'm a very fast healer and had to have a follow-up manip plus a procedure to remove add'l tissue. Point is, I'm probably not a typical case, and I'd go to Lingenfelter again if I had to do it all again. Excellent bedside manner, cares, explains in as much detail as you want. I'd give him 6 stars if I could.
