What People Say About Dr. Barret Lessenberry, MD

I have gone to Dr. Lessenberry for many years. He has done multiple surgeries on me due to my joint degeneration. He has also done joint fusions in my hand and big toes. All of my surgeries have been very successful. He is very thorough and compassionate. He doesn't do any procedures unless he feels they are absolutely necessary. He always tries non surgical treatments first. I wouldn't think of letting any other orthopedic doctor deal with my joints. I can't recommend him highly enough..

Dr. Lessenberry treated me like an animal, he never even examined me, walked in the door and told that I had ligament damage and not my rotary cuff (again he didn't even ask question or feel my shoulder) gave me a shot of cortisone and told me if I was better in two weeks he would schedule and MRI. In two weeks I wasn't not better ( I was worse) I tried calling his office no answer, two days later they called me back. Since I have seen another doctor and rotary cuff has two tears in it.

Saw him 1 hour after scheduled appointment. Didn't check my records. Took me off pain med & put me back on anti-inflammatory that had been prescribed 2 months prior - didn't work and body can't handle. Prescribed another anti-inflammatory "if this doesn't work, call back in a month". Half the time spent recording his opinion. "Don't need therapy but we can provide (sell you) a home neck traction that hooks over a door."
